Below is a poem I wrote inspired by the peace, joy and reprieve being in nature provides me.
What do you find in nature? Let me know in the comments below.
Nature, teach me how to live
To embrace change and
Flow effortlessly like the steady stream
To embody the wisdom of the trees
Who shed their leaves in the fall
Scattering their vibrant colours and
Peculiar shapes across the forest floor
So to can I
Learn to let go
Liberate and regenerate
For refresh and renewal
Nature, you do not judge
Night from day
Calm from storm
Chaos from order
What seems split in two, is all but one
And you do not rush
With time and ease
All that needs to be done is done
Nature, let me learn from you
Let me immerse myself in the vast natural world
For I am you, and you are I
I am you, you-I

I have an amazing picture of those trees that I took in FRIM. It was the first time I realized trees can communicate.
Love this poem. This morning as I look out my bedroom window the awe and appreciation of nature and all her creatures is rewarded. A beautiful wild white deer strolled by and is now happily eating acorns under one of our many oak trees, the mist clings to the hillside and a magpie was busy ripping nesting material from a hanging basket on our verandah. My mood is lifted and I feel at peace with the world once again. I wrote a blog post a while ago about Mother Nature being the great equaliser.
Thank you, for this it sounds beautiful
Beautiful poem. I did say this but the comment disappeared.
