Ode to Nature

I just HAD to write this while enjoying some desperately-needed time in nature that I had this weekend. I hope you enjoy! 🙂

I beheld the day unwind to night,

Witness to the peace between the dwindling light.

Mellow browns and vibrant greens,

Shifting and rustling against the strength of the wind.

Standing before the brink of darkness, a moment of beauty.

I notice the frailty of lavender and peach hued clouds,

Just above the tops of trees, reminiscent of mountains.

I watched the world unfold before me.

Rolling like waves, cresting like the ocean,

The tenderly cared for lawn brims with life both of flora and fauna.

Rabbits come up like dolphins of earth, birds like their kin over water,

Maple leaves and Dogwood petals lift and move like sails,

Carrying not people, but the scents of new life.

I watched the world unfold before me.

A child of the Universe, I closed my eyes to listen.

Speaking to me through the vibrations below my feet

Mother Nature tells a story of her joy and sorrows.

A tear of mixed motions falls down my cheek, swept away by the wind.

I open my eyes to the reality ahead.

And I watched the world unfold before me.
