Living and Loving Within Nature


Living and Loving Within Nature


We could live in the woods

among wildflowers, blue birds, and deer.

Hunting for those rare trees bearing whorled leaves

while still admiring the beauty of sycamores.

We pass violets encased in purple robes.

We munch of filberts and cashews.

We wash those down with oat straw tea,

follow the parade of trees clad with lichen,

love with whole hearts,

and not only by fractions.

  1. mediations on nature are needed and wanted in a world where pain and suffering is not a natural result but rather human-contrived.

  2. Thank you for reading the poem and commenting, Chelsea. I have been working to develop more nature poems.
