Read the Universe

Poetry By: Shannan Browne

So many things that nature tells us... her beauty overwhelming when we are blessed to read

Be aware of the messages the Universe is sending

From the Braille etched in her leaves

To the sculptures of her trees

Pictures changing through each season

Everything happening for a reason

As we are told in the wisdom that trips

Illustratively, metaphorically, from old lips

Life plays out beautifully crafted notes

And the missive of music from afar floats

To accompany the 3D stories

On each generations' glories

As they are sketched in every campfire

Drawing dancing flames tantalizing the sky

Where birds soar in majestic flight

Amidst pictures in the cloudy sight

Reciting, reverberating, the calls of the wild

Letters sent for every learning child

Under an incomprehensibly vast sky

A glittered black canvas, intimation up high

All these texts of the Universe, the lot

Paid for daily as the red coin sets in her slot

And reflects herself miraculously

Indescribably, indefinably

As a glistening of eternity

Mirrored in the eyes blessed to read
