Nature’s Wisdom. ~ Salvatore Vionito {Poem}

Nature’s Wisdom.

Arms out stretched trying

To wrap a hug around the sky.

Leaves bursting out of their veins

Getting high off of the sun,

Drenched and punch drunk

On each drop of rain that falls,

Whispering hello to the passing wind

And yet keeps still enough

To grab hold of its source,

Digging roots deep down

As the heavens are way up high.

Some search in books,

Carved from the heart’s pulp

Of our greatest teachers,

For the secret answers

That complete our lives.

But there are no secrets except

For the ones we keep from ourselves.

Nature is God’s reminder

That nothing is made incomplete,

That in total gratitude for what is,

We begin to see the abundance

That surrounds us.
