The Church of Nature. {Poem} ~ Anita Brown

Will you think of me?

Will you think of me
When you first step on the verdant, green earth again
Yielding to her rich submersion
Enriched by and on terra firma
With your newly sweetened soul
As if the bees could
Gather your nectar into honey?

Will you think of me
When you greet the starry night
An astral gaze at the clouds
Worshiping a crescent moon?

Will you think of me
Basking under a blazing sun
Allowing its warmth to kindle your inner flame?

Will you think of me
As you acknowledge the magic in the mist
Or the music in the breeze
As you sit and notice the tears pricking your eye
Because of your new connectivity?

Will you think of me
When the river calls your name
And orates like a sanctuary
Overflowing with promise
And curiosity for the next unfolding?

Will you think of me
Because nature has become your church?

About Anita Brown

Anita is a content mother of two teenagers and wife of 20 years, both of which she is grateful for every day. She began writing poetry in the fall of 2012 after a mini-breakdown cracked open her heart and allowed this newly found gift to shine through. Many months later, she is realizing the truth in the saying that ‘breakdown equals spiritual awakening’ as she is pleasantly shocked at how much more peace she has in her spirit and how that is reflected in her life.  Anita loves yoga, dancing, traveling, cooking, walking her golden Sierra and quiet evenings at home. She especially enjoys teaching meditation to underserved communities and listening to others as they express joy at the transformation occurring from simple but regular practice.
