Nature

I have always felt Close

To Nature.

It’s Beauty and Shear

Immensity

Seem to generate a Warm feeling

Of Religious

Experience.

For what Great Cathedral

Or

Any Man-made Object

Could compare with the Evolutional Works

Of God?

*

When I am in a Natural Setting:

Be it Glassy Clear Lake,

Or Mountain;

Rolling Plain or Billowing Sky;

The Overwhelming Feeling that is

My

Personal Experience,

Is one of Celestial Quiet

And Peace.

*

The Greatest feeling of Awe

Comes at Night,

Sitting in front of a Crackling Fire;

Listening to the Evening Sounds;

An Insect Seranade.

While

Staring up into the Vast Dark Universe

Through

Layers of Twinkling Stars

That seem to

Go on

Forever.

*

When I look up at that Sky,

Through

Row upon Row

Of

Tall and Stately

Trees,

It is Difficult to Comprehend

That,

Although Man can travel through Space

Searching the Stars

For the Secrets of the Universe,

He cannot Understand

The

Natural Order

Surrounding

Him.

*

When I Walk through the Woods

Kicking Leaf

After

Fragile Leaf

From my Path;

Breathing Deeply of the Cold

Invigorating

Air;

I can see the Forest

Teaming

With Uncomplicated

Purposeful

Life.

*

I can Touch the Rough

Knarled Bark

Of

Sturdy

Tree Trunks

Grown old with Grace

And

Sovereign Dignity.

I can Smell

The Mingled Fragrances of Flowers,

And Honey,

And Uncut Grass,

That

Grow Wild along the Path,

Ignored by the Hurried Passing

Of Man.

*

I can hear the Babbling Brooke

As

It Winds

Its Icy Way

Down

The Mountain,

And Drops its Last Few Feet

Into the Ocean’s

Pounding Surf.

I can see the Rainbow of Colors

Reflected in a Delicate Flower’s

Petals,

And the Exposed Layers of the

Grand Canyon.

For

Beauty can be seen Everywhere

For those who take the Time

to Look.
