This is a poem based on the human nature to exploit the Earth and how we should begin to change our ways. It is also a reflection of how I view the world and on my pagan faith that involves everything in nature regardless of what form it takes.
Below is the poem entitled Speculum Naturae Matris - Mother Nature's Mirror which was written by poet
Anderson. Please feel free to comment on this poem. However, please remember, PoetrySoup is a place of encouragement and growth.

Many tales encase mirrors
both glittering and new,
still the reflections portrayed
may become distorted by a single
crack thus one becomes many.
Light absorbed and then broken
in to an array of colour; many
smiles surround the boundless
room of Mother Nature’s good will.
The purest of white floats across
the bright blue sky,
like magical boats carrying
the very essence of innocence.
Then yet human nature is selfish
thus reflecting a darker side;
we all harbour inner demons that
manifest themselves, like the
sly virus created by man that
leaves a path of destruction
across and within nature’s niches.
But still Mother Nature forgives
for her resilience is beyond the
claws of man; She will remain even
when we are gone for day and night
are locked in an eternal cycle for
ever to be the mirror in to
which we peer in to her world.
Regardless of our selfish nature
She will always be heard whenever
we need teaching from wrong to right;
her voice is always there in the
form of eruptions from her fiery belly,
violent quakes from within her soul
and almighty thunder from within
her powerful lungs creating
tornadoes and hurricanes alike.
Still Mother Nature is forgiving
but our inner demons continue to
shadow the mirror in to her world
thus we are destined to overstep
our limitations and end up trapped
in a whirlpool of denial and false
