Eight Designs of Nature in Photos and Verses

Eight Designs of Nature in Photos 
and Verses 
"Those who find beauty in all of nature will find themselves at one with the secrets of life itself."
                                                                 - L. Wolfe Gilbert

Dr Abe V Rotor
A frond at birth questions the world, 
if it can by its rules afford;
and knowing not to decipher neither 
lose nor gain, sans to wither 
and die before its prime and its kind
all by chance and magic bind.
A veil it rises to meet the sun, 
every leaf a golden shield,
to catch its rays to build new life 
to other creatures shall yield.  
Tapestry in radial form like funnel,
living labyrinth, like Nature's bell. 
sans trunk, branches and flower, 
it's umbrella to catch the shower. 

Tongue of destruction,
matter back to energy;
sans known destination
in undefinable fury.
Deciduous trees in summer season,
unveil heaven through bars of branches;
wonder how the Creator would look 
at us instead beneath these arches. 
Afloat moving with the wind, 
orphaned too soon, to where 
this mass of cloud is bound;
would you call this freedom?
Tallness like Tower of Babel, 
bigness like the dinosaur; 
their doom's common for sure,
legend and science would tell.

It's a pathway, a cobbled walk,
the feet walks, none shall thrive,
grass may die but not the moss  
that keeps the bare walk alive.
