I Brought Nature Home

My Garden Pond with wall mural by AVRotor, 2010 QC.

I'm with Nature reading the morning paper,
whatever news it brings for the day;
I'm with Nature with brewed coffee piping hot,
rising in mist, whiling time away.

I'm with Nature, with a bit of the mountain, sea,
of rivulets, streams and lake;
I'm with Nature, clouds rising on the horizon,
white and dark, into rain they make.

I'm with Nature, the ocean spreading out
in a grasp from shore to its end;
I'm with Nature, in the sky of deep azure
birds fly free to heaven.

I'm with Nature, confined yet boundless,
by lianas, the lowly bryophyte;
Dissolving the old prison walls and bars,
that for years barred my sight.

I'm with Nature, from sunrise to evening,
writing my life in a poem,
While Midas touches everything to gold,
Save where I brought Nature home. ~

Living with Nature, AVR
