A Friend In Nature - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

I've found a friend in nature
although nature could turn on me
if i'm out and about in a storm
and its lightning strikes me
if a tidal wave sweeps me far out to sea
or a poisonous snake takes a bite of me
if a tornado twirls me high into the sky
yes, the irony is that nature which
i find so enchanting
could one day cause my demise

    As Nature reclaims our bodies, heaven reclaims its heart,
    you are such a wonderful writer, love Duncan
