|NATURE AND ME|
Shadows of dusk grew tall, along passed my
withering time, racing neck and neck;
legs moved forward at an uneven space;
uphill was the task to the mountain cliff
that waits like lone longing lass for her love.
Life at it’s brim, weak and beaten down,
abused, abandoned, sick and ignored;
prime of life a smoky dream,
laughter and giggle a weak distant echo
from the far-fetched past of my life;
I ‘m near the lip of life
to only hear the sneer, growl and the
grinding of teeth as I speak.
Deep cliff on the mountaintop I viewed,
as my gateway to life beyond life,
away from living hell, to the heaven’s gate;
her arms stretched with wide smile;
with pounding heart, I approached… A step
away and my miseries shall only be history.
At the edge of the cliff, my fading eyes
caught a glimpse, a bird not so bigger
then a bumblebee; fussily trying
to put together tiny twigs to make
a home of her own; my one-step could
devastate her world of live-dream;
so I sat for her to accomplish and to rest.
Days passed to weeks,
and seasons changed,
years rolled; here I sit at
the mountaintop a step
way from the deep dark cliff.
Smiling just the way she did
speaking to me through
gentle breeze, hugging me
now and then, reminding
my withering ol’ wits,
Joy of life a simple state of mind,
blends in merrily well with
love to gel.
To this day “Nature and Me”
an inseparable song of life,
singing it together now
until it’s time to kiss her adieu,
allow my ol’ cheerful soul
to freely depart.
