I feed upon nature
and it feeds upon me
I drink from its waterfalls
and swim in its seas
I pluck some of its apples
and find shade under its trees
I rest upon its rocks
and run across its leas
I bathe under its sun
and dance beyond its breeze
For it is I who have found nature
or has it found me?

                                    Written on some rocks
                                     beside Al Aawaj Springs 
                                                           in Syria

Symbiosis- what an amazing way to look at the planet. So true it is, yet I wish more felt like this. Another amazing piece.

Nice use of rhyme, fitting for your thoughts. I like how you ended your poem with a question. It all flows together quite well. Thank you for sharing this one with us and for your kind comment on my poem. Have a good day! Karen
