Beauty and the Beast
Nature, is beautiful, quiet, and serene.
nature, is the forest, with its many shades of green.
Nature, is the birds, welcoming in the dawn,
nature, is a calf, struggling to its feet as soon as it is born.
Nature, is a salmon, swimming against the stream,
nature, is a volcanic geyser, venting off steam.
Nature, is a beast, kicking up a storm,
nature, is the trees, all bent, and broken, looking so forlorn.
Nature, is lightning striking the ground,
nature, is a forest fire, consuming everything around.
Nature, is a tornado, with its screaming roar,
nature, is a tidal wave, smashing every thing ashore.
Nature, can be a beauty, and nature can be a beast.
