My Horizons


My hills, my valleys,

my evergreen trees,

how I love to hug you!

Days are never the same

with maiden Nature skipping on

the crystal clear waters

gurgling through boulder

and bush; renewed radiance

glittering gemlike embraces my eyes,

my being; the dreamy flowers bloom

in a scented spectrum of soothing colors

decorating the valley and the mountainsides,

the fragrant wind wafts at will in the early

sunlight of this quiet, cool December morn.


My heart dances to the song

of Nature as she takes me

to her boulevards of beauty,

splendor and tranquility.

Her melody echoes in the wide

white sky, through the translucent

blue of the distant ocean that spreads

to the very end of this land

my land, my heaven of freedom.


My ever-endearing mate,

my steady companion

through unnumbered lives

of the past and future,

Nature spreads around

generously; gently

beckoning, giving me

a chance to learn to be patient,

kind and considerate, impartial,

shed malice and covetousness,

hopeful like a lotus in the mire.


My never-changing, immortal

friend, guide and philosopher!

mother-like, you are ever present

to wipe my tears, clear my frown,

lift me from the sinking sands

of disillusion, and resentment.

I prithee my Mother Nature,

forgive us frail mortals, of our

uncouth, ignorant, rude ways.

Inspire us, kind Spirit, to fall

in step with your worthy, gracious self.
