Eyes of Mother Nature

Not just the sky itself they are every ocean and stream
Windows of beauty fringed in verdant shades of green.

Look deeply, in there, for rainbows, flowers and rain
Not a trace of sadness shows for things that cause her pain.

Content within her powers of evergreen renewal 
Her eyes so often soft are secret, mystic jewels.

Resplendant, they reflect bright fires of sunset hues
So much she gives us, yet we never pay the dues.

These eyes- so beautiful, we her children fill with hurt
Beware, the day will come, her precious gaze she will avert.

Suzanne Delaney

I like your take on the theme, SuZ. Contest requirement aside, your imagery is powerful and vivid. That warning in the final verse is apt and should be heeded. 7. hugs!

Thanks Kim: I do like checking the contest themes. They certainly give me impetus to write even if they sometimes fall short of the requirements. Thanks for the high marks. Maybe someday there will be a contest it fits. lol Hugs, SuZ

G'day Suzanne... yes, the eyes of Mother Nature will have the final say, and she will clean the slate and start again if we keep pushing her. Thank you Suzanne - Lindsay

I like your take on this visual, Suzanne. The eyes of mother nature is a lovely offering; the final line is a fair warning! Now you can go back and write a 25 word one:) // paul
