The heavenly presence of nature’s serenity

Untouched by invention or signs of humanity

The joyful perfection of unfettered landscape

Shimmering waters that leave you agape


Birds flying softly wind in the air

Gold early sunlight crows’ noises to hear

Sweet smelling flowers surrender their scent

White clouds dotting blueness seem heaven sent


The respite of forest cool moss jutting trees

The mystery of quiet buzzing of bees

The roar of the ocean and crash of waves

Sunsets on horizon draw no less than raves


Sometimes in our hasty march straight through life

We don’t take the time-outs to see inspiring sights  

Then in our stressed state we forget where to turn

When we need soothing from relentless churn


Always remember what’s waiting for you

Whenever you’re weary or you feel blue

Nature’s perfection holds gifts in store

Take time appreciate the abundance galore


Have you recently taken the time to partake of the beauty nature has to offer?

Has there ever been a time you found comfort in nature?

Might you take time every day to appreciate the bounty nature is?

What could that do for you?
