Nature Boy

So, I’ve never been a true nature boy
Although a cool and lazy night in June
Just sitting in the darkness I enjoy
An open starlit sky behind the moon.

As a gentle breeze caresses my face,
Upon my back I feel the long day’s heat.
And of my cares and worries not a trace
As into relaxation I retreat.

The lightning bugs in flight pay me no heed,
Eliciting a chuckle as they dance,
I wish them best of luck as they proceed
With all the twinkling stars to make romance.

I’m colorblind, so hues I can’t employ…
So, I’ve never been a true nature boy.

I really enjoyed your take on this theme, Stephen and you depicted the scene so well that I was 'out there with you' under the starlit sky.
