My love affair with Nature
I want to be with you, I can’t get enough of you
Beside you, I am refreshed, invigorated.
Like a rainfall so badly needed
On land that is dry and arid.
Seeking you, I go into your forests.
On trails and paths I wander
Quietly passing through, I see creeks that meander
Once in a while I stop in my footsteps
I gaze at your beauty, I feel inspired!
The little wild flowers growing in the woods
The majestic trees forming beautiful canopies
Flitting to and fro are butterflies and hummingbirds
Black bumble bees helping with pollination.
You are amazing, so overwhelming
Full of happiness, I feel my eyes tearing!
Rumbling creeks and gushing waterfalls
The wind gently blowing... your way of communicating
Your tone, your voice is music to my ears
Your gentle breeze, touching my face.
In your green and grassy meadows, I lie
Embracing you, touching you, feeling earth.
In your bosom, I rest.
You return my love with the caress of soft blades of grass.
And you kiss me back with your sun's rays
They come down upon me, warming me all over
My body heats up, you are a perfect lover.
Erratics covered with lichens and moss.
In winter, snow-covered hills and forests, I snowshoe across.
Icicles forming down the hillside as waterflow freezes
Amidst this white-covered beauty, I find peace and bliss
You, Mother Nature, are the perfect sculptor and artist!
When my travels take me close to the lake
Water sparkling clear, shimmering, glistening
Deep blue skies kissing the horizon
Canoeing creating ripples, in silence I feel rapture.
All around me is beauty, you have taken me to heaven!
Night falls, and your dark dress lights up with twinkling diamonds
Your moon beams cast light and shadow on my face.
A different magic you present at night!
All along, Nature, you were there for me
Teasing me, beckoning me
Calling me to enjoy your company.
And glad I am that I have found you
You are mine forever.
You radiate your peace, your tranquility
You and I are bound for eternity.
