Nature's A Wizard

She morphs into a sultry summer's morn
garbed in a cloak of alabaster fog
gossamer thin, and casually worn.
And echoing the croaks of a bullfrog
She starts to carry on a dialogue,
with chirps too intricate to catalogue.
Slipping on Her slippers of sparkling dew
She inks an ebony horizon red,
as the sun rises in a sky of blue.
And shadows get resurrected from the dead
while spiders dangling from a silken thread
spin dream-catcher webs that fill flies with dread.
Nature's a wizard of special-effects
from scarlet sunsets and jungles of green
to the colors of Her birds and insects.
Wherever we go, She's already been,
keeping Her rivers, seas, and oceans clean,
but Her mood can change from wild to serene.
I hear Her whisper secrets on the wind,
like spring’s approaching, or the ice has thinned.
