MOTHER NATURE AS SHE IS

Nothing can paint mother nature
just as she really is . . .
A bird or a twig is left out . . .
There is always something amiss . . .
The bellow of the frog in the pond . . .
The shade falling about . . .
and ants crawling in the grass . . .
Aren't some of those things always left out?

A chunk of ice floating down the stream . . .
may miss the artist's eye . . .
He may not heed a timid deer . . .
that is quietly slipping by. . .

And the poet's gaze is careless, too . . .
Many things miss her pen . . .
But the human eye that loves nature . . .
Hears, feels, sees all . . . from mountain to the glen!

  8. Really beautiful poem Margie. I wholeheartedly agree. The strokes of a paintbrush or the words of a pen can only translate pieces of the wholeness that we feel while immersed in nature. Thankfully "nature art" inspires the viewer/listener's good feeling memories to surface from their own experience, and invites them to go there and feel it firsthand again :-)
