Hope in Nature

When hope eroded by life's extremes as life mocks fermenting a wish to die I let twilight bathe my drooping eyes and take my heart to nature's scenes. . Nature flirting in it’s proud green attire behold the swift squirrel& early magpie And silky cob webs woven stealthily at night- swinging in the gusty breeze so sweet. . the foliage spotted by the morning dews Even in twilight glares as sparkling gems the splendid silhouette of the far off hillocks and the glittering zigzag rill in the meadows . the random chorus of the myriad crickets- well , as much a part of this silence the busy bees in the rich green garden buzzing on dahlia, Lilly and jasmine . the ants in line in search of the bread the sweet roses on thorny stems crimson red tall palm trees swinging the cuckoos helping the pepper to creep to its heights. a pair of parrots preening before take off the tender calf sucking the cow in gusto the mango grove carpeted by fallen leaves A rooster pecking worms in family of chicks . oh! what a time to love and adore what a time to mind to live on as one heart rises in the cool morning zephyr Why wish a heaven above that far?

I like your perspective. Man sees himself apart from creation and therefore separates himself. Then he wonders why he doesn’t feel like he has a place in the world.

I feel I would be a perfect creation if I love all that's given to me by this universe in varied colours and hues. I can not separate creation and created . Glad you liked this. Thanks

For me Nature is a gift however my hope is still grounded in my God.
