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
