New Contrast Tanks have it all. Except sleeves.

Sanctuary

Grass beneath my shoes, vibrant and healthy
Feels like it’s always moist and cut daily, fully alive

Ants, earwigs, crickets hide behind blades of grass
Find safety and seclusion under the fallen leaves of trees
That haven’t found time to die while surrounded by life

The lives of all the birds and squirrels above
Seem endless and small, unimportant yet somehow vital

A sunlit breeze carries flower petals
From all of the daisies that grow here
Adding liveliness and health to this peaceful place

The calmness and beauty here is only spoiled
By the cries of a widow at her beloved’s grave

Sanctuary
