Dear Nature,

And there I am,

Lying on the ground

As the rain is pouring down

And the wind is scraping past me

And the mud is sliding beneath me,

Yet the mountains stand fierce.

 

The skies are greyer than ever,

Stirring like a storm

And there are flowers around me,

Pretty pinks and purples too

 

But please

Let me lie here,

Let me hear the wind roar.

Let the rain battle me,

And hit me like

Splints.

 

My fingers feel cold, numb

As the dirty mud washes me,

The hills circle around me,

And the grass is filling up,

Like a bath

 

Now the river will carry me,

As I am floating

Away

 

Because nature does not care,

It will take you where it wants;

No questioning the water,

Fire or air.

 

They work as always,

But how strong is your fight?

They will catch you even with

Your strongest sight

 

It will damage you, the earth

Yet those flowers are still growing,

Rainbows are forming and nature

Is changing

 

So guide me along your long

Turning, changing veins,

Let me float on top of them,

And take me to wherever

They are flowing

 

There are universal patterns:

Have you seen the neurons in the twigs of trees?

Have you seen our veins in rivers and

The rivers in the leaves?

 

Nature is part of us,

As we are part of it.

It builds us as we

Build upon it.

 

So breathe,

As it gives you a breath

 

Nature,

You are the start and the end.

Let the world know,

And the world can be shown;

Change your view,

And the things you look at

Change

 

Then I am a part of you

Always,

Whether you decide I am the bark

Or the leaf.

The rock or the bone;

The breathing or the matter

 

You can blow me away,

You allow the beautiful,

The destruction too

 

It seems you made the choices

Before we ever had a clue

 

So please,

Let me lie,

Let me float,

Let me be

Blown away.
