Treasure Island

Claude H Oliver II

(Nov.7,1948 / New York City)

Nature


All that is – is nature
The nature of nature
Is defined by nature
That which is defined by nature
We call natural
Nature forms us, births us, shapes us
Yet we aspire not to nature
But un – natural
Trying to be …not
An impossibility of nature.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.
