The Rich Life

 


Many wonders yet to
behold 
amazement doth
increase 
suppose I would have
died 
before witnessing
this awesome treat.

My basket still half
filled 
let me taste all of
life 
the valleys and the
hills 
There is awe in
every performance..

There are many
secrets in nature
too 
I came here eager to
know all 
before my life is
through 
When the universe
puts on its three 
Dimensional,
Meteorological show

Technicolor in acts
of nature ..
Give me the front
row. 
I do not want to be
lax in my 
knowledge of this
world,be it
serenity,chaos or
peace 
If I was sent to
earth to live
I must become at one
with it.

I do myself an
injustice 
if I miss this
marvelous feast 
I want to count the
stars
know the secret
lives of plants 
I want to know the
wonders
before I am
deceased. 
Because as I live
and breath
WONDERS NEVER CEASE!

    You speak truth, and sadly so many are completly unaware of the mystery and majesty of this world that God has gifted to us.

    Yes once I realized from a book I read years ago That plant indeed have a rooted underground communication system.

    Very nicely done. These issues are mixed in with human psyche. Are we in anyway so different?
