When You Are With Nature

When you are with nature
listen to the trees,
hear the running streams,
watch the clouds go by
while they transform and shape shift,
observe the birds as they glide and swoop,
pay attention to the sounds of insects,
look closely into a flower or a leaf,
investigate the minuscule life,
feel the coolness of the breeze
and the lightness of a zephyr,
smell the sweetness of the air
let the winds sweep you off your feet,
touch the textures of the wilderness,
embrace a living being,
taste the flavor in all things,
appreciate their existence without reason,
be educated by the love of the land,
because ultimately,
we are a part of our mother in the end.
