Nature is complicated. Believe it. However simply, its the feeling you think you feel when you are feeling it.

I want to explore the garden

Dance to the song of the winds

You do,

At least that’s what you tell yourself

Yet the flower petal wilts

And you still haven’t smelt it

Such things give a tingling sensation

You are told,

A slow calm like sunset

Blessings others marvel at feeling

An emotion you search for helplessly

Wising you weren’t so blind

Unseeing to the presence of nature

 

Sometimes you wonder

Is peace what they describe?

Is it being alone and happy?

Silence follows those questions

Uncertainty and sometimes self hate

For most hear the song of the birds

Laugh at the chatter of the wind

Scrowl at the suns harsh greeting

While you can only cry alone

Never to understand natures beauty call
