The anticipation of reconnecting with the nature of the world, the excitement of the silence ready to unfurl.
A sleeping bag packed so tight if it were alive it would be dead, roll it out across the ground that for tonight becomes your bed.
All around the camping field soft murmurs begin to die down, a hooting owl flies overhead and breaks the silence with its sound.
You settle down inside your bag, as snug as you ever could be, you’re on the brink of sleeping tight when you realise you need to pee.
Across the grass you sneak with stealth, towards the toilet block, a fellow camper appears before you, in a flustered state of shock.
It seems that in your haste to pee something important slipped your mind. You streaked across the camping ground with a completely naked behind!
Just a nice little ditty to commemorate an awesome weekend camping with my walking buddy, Gayle. And I cannot confirm nor deny whether it’s based on true events… 😉
