Call Of Nature Poem by Wendy Bureau

Fog blankets the desolate earth
With motionless, invisible arms
Concealing any imperfections
Of Nature's poised beauty and charm

A vapor mist of moisture
Dampens foliage with care
Gentle as the sweetest kiss
On tender lips, so fair

A necessity of plantations growth
Sipping wetness of various form
Absorbing like a starving sponge
During the calm before the storm

A miracle of unspoken prayer
From crying clouds, does fall
Saturating dirt and root
Soaked, satisfied, Nature's call

    Until the last lines one could rate the poem not more than 9. Then, poet Wendy Bureau, surprised us spreading 'the miracle of an unspoken prayer from crying clouds' in our saturating dirt and root, responding to Nature's call. And then, I put a full 10, gladly.Poetry discloses miracles over and over.Thanks for sharing Wendy
