Lover Of Nature - Poem by Claudia Krizay

As the sun rises over the mountainside,
A fascination with all that is innate,
Here within the depth of the woodlands
I have been drawn closer to nature,
Blossoming wild flowers,
Trees scraping the cumulus clouds above and
Deer gallivanting about the trail-
Only the songs of locusts singing has
Interrupted the enchanting silence,
As I suddenly but unobtrusively fall into a deeply thoughtful mode-
In all suddenness I find myself content and delighted
To be alone with my own thoughts and
Rewardingly close to the glory of
This scenery, so picturesque and inspiring
In a most unique, mesmerizing way-
Far away from the loudness of city life,
Cars rushing up and down hectic highways, and
People never pausing to see what exists beyond
Their daily routines,
I call myself fortunate to be blessed with solitude and with
This quiet though in some ways musically compelling environment,
As I have escaped all there is to dread-
Kneeling beneath the shade of a maple tree,
I can nearly see my face reflected within
The clarity of the crystalline creek before me-
I believe I have found my true home here as
I have discovered, becoming pensive and delighted to be alone in this place,
I am content to call my own private world, as
I feel myself happily growing, here where I am safe, joyful to have discovered this
Magical kingdom, where rain never seems to fall upon my horizon,
Leaving me with nothing to fear …
