At One With Nature.

I walk through the wooded glade,

The beauty and wonder of nature

Showing me its glory.

A thrush walks across my path,

We stare at each other.

A smile comes to my face

As we just stay still,

Looking into each other’s eyes.

It trots off, unhurried,

It looks back as if to say goodbye.

I walk on and see the sparkle of the sun

Dropping through the trees

And touching me with its light.

I become one with nature

As I intermingle with it.

There are only good thoughts

Within my mind,

Telling me that being at one with nature

Is there for me,

And I know that in the future

We will be at one together.

          I think of woodland as the cathederals of our spirituality. There is such a presence among the trees.
          I am with you in the feeling of one-ness with nature expressed in your post today.

          • Goldfinch60

            Very true d a, that spirituality always seems to be there.

                Vegetation is the harbinger of nature and in their presence we experience oneness with existence itself, as you have in this poem

                • Goldfinch60

                  Very true Suresh, we enjoy that oneness.

                  i share your sentiments. i was looking at a weed much vilified by gardeners - it smothered a hedgerow with its pure white flowers lighting up the track - the humble Greater Bindweed - yet not so humble. Sorry I've gone a tad off piste but I was so taken with the beauty of it.

                  • Goldfinch60

                    I agree with you Michael, after all a weed is any flower in the wrong position.

                    As summer ends and autumn calls, the leaves turn red and start to fall; nature, never still, always something new to please the eye and warm the heart. Inspiring. Joe

                    • Goldfinch60

                      So very true Joe, autumn is my favourite time of the year. Thank you.

                      • myself and me

                        Every time I look up the blue sky, I feel like I am flying. It is such a wonderful feeling to be one with nature.

                        • Goldfinch60
