The exercise:

Your four lines of prose this week shall be about: back to the land.

Mine:

The landscape has changed. There are fewer buildings and more wild bushes. The fences have crumbled to dust.

But when I close my eyes the old, familiar scents tell me that I've come home again.

I like the sentiment you convey in those four lines, it's got a hint of bittersweetness to it!

Back to the land

"We've lived in the gravity-free environment for a long time," said Vivian, captain of the space-freighter The Green Lightbulb. "How easy will it really be to go back to the land?"
"Very hard," said Doctor Andrews, opening the door of the shuttle Dr. Septopus, "but the gravity on the planet is thankfully quite low."
The two strapped themselves in, ready to begin the reconnaissance.

Thanks :)

And that's an interesting twist on what I am now calling The Green Lightbulb universe. I like it!
