Nature No.1

The engagement of sight,
The silent wonders
That quiver before us—

The fluttering butterfly,
Its sails gaining purchase
On the weight of the atmosphere—

The slow moving slug
Its senses, like ours,
Engaged with the environment,
Its head turning with
Smooth trajectory
And compassionate order—

The fruit tree swelling
With such rapid growth,
Turning water into juice
And shining in the sunlight—

The bumble bee busy
In focused activity,
Unpausing to ponder,
To sit and stare
At the endless sky,
The distant moon,
The light of the stars,
And the ending of time.
