Nature - Poem by Claude H Oliver II

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.

    All the best, most coveted art does imitate nature very successfully- even here in this succinct poem you've written. (Report) Reply

    The nature of nature is defined by nature and is the power that regulates the world not artificial
    things of which man regulates.'Yet we aspire not nature' truth be told. a 10 (Report) Reply
