Mother Nature

Wind at my feet, tingles summer sweet
The moon hidden within a cool June
Clouds painted grey, misty-breath sprays
Rain drops bounce
off leaves in trees they dance
Sounds of a symphony
playing natures harmony

Creating words in my head that would be read
Sublime visions, exploding in colourful images
Waiting for the sun to rise, brightens the eyes
Deep emerald green
a blanket laid serene
Dotted with flowers
bursting vivid colours

Species of every kind, fills the heart and mind
Her beauty exists, when Mother Nature permits
Beholder witness, her loving forgiveness
She may toil and thunder
turn us over and under
Split open the ground
shake the oceans around

We toss debris, along highways built for you and me
Insulting her existence, tarnishing her brilliance
Anger unleashed, the earth besieged
Until a calm comes
from her gracious palm
Stroking a face
with a warming grace
A love for her children
in spirits kindred
