Mother nature

The moon's light pierces the night's sky
the stars twinkle, like billions of newborn eyes
I lay in a blanket of green silk
amazed by the beauty that surrounds me
trees dancing in the cool summer's breeze
it covers me, as if mother nature is hugging me
in that moment, I'm one with her
I close my eyes and listen to her voice
my ears are filled with the music
of which the choir of frog and crickets sing
I open my eyes to see fireflies
illuminating their beat
I take a slow and deep breath
I can still smell the rain that fell earlier
I can't help but think those are mother nature's tears
tears of sadness because most of her children take her work for granted
they destroy what she has built, to turn a profit
building cities, that are full of sinister thoughts and actions
full of revolting and grotesque creatures
then I realize, they're tears of joy
that make her beautiful creation grow
for the children that love and cherish her work
with that thought, I smile and whisper
thank you mother nature

    A great poem, it's true you really can smell the rain, it's got a really
    distinct smell to it. (Report) Reply
