17 May

Tree limbs reaching to the sky.
Children laughing-out carbon dioxide.
Birds singing the leaves awake,
who, in turn, make oxygen for our sake.
Ants working diligently,
Grass releasing dew,
Clouds gathering patiently,
Sunshine bathing us, anew.
Bees dancing from flower to flower,
A slight breeze sowing the seeds;
This cathedral of invisible motion
is all my soul needs.

Testimonium ad infinitum.

Gardenia by Lupe Eyde-Tucker

Look around, there is evidence everywhere.

What does nature mean to you?

    Sometimes what the soul really needs is so very simple….such as paying attention to nature which is before our eyes.

    I specially admire: This cathedral of invisible motion
    is all my soul needs.

    I love the way you incorporate the ‘scientific’ terminology so easily and naturally into your poem – a lot of lightness and fun here!

    This is a perfect poem for Earth Day. I like how you involve so many senses.

    Oh so true.. the testimony of nature needs no book.. the truth is all out there.. for those who sense and feel.. the life of ONE is IN the flower.. the bird.. the grain of sand.. in songs of love.. that all move us in body and mind in love.. the balance of nature.. can truly be WELL being ALIVE as well..:)
