Into the wild : As urbanites locked down, nature reclaimed the imagination.

Into the wild

During the coronavirus-induced self-isolations of city dwellers, the wilderness – urban, jungle or cerebral – welcomed us back into the fold. Through the window, sunrises and sunsets bookended our days, and the freedom of birds was a source of envy.

In this sixth and final extract from elemente – a collection of poems and photographs along elementary themes – a wilderness diary is related through a series of haiku. Images are paired with poems as visual accompaniment to natural impressions, just as many of us emerge from our shelters after a long period with fewer interactions with nature.
