If I was a cloud floating on by
Would you look up, breathe, and wonder why
I looked like a dog, a boat, or a fish
Would you smile and make your deepest wish?
If I was a sweet morning dove
Cooing from without, beyond, and above
Would you take a deep lungful of cleansing air
And truly release all of your thoughts, without care?
If I was a cool and quiet green-blue pond
Would you remember all who made you feel fond
Would you step in deep right here and now
And take a lingering and heartfelt inner bow?
Would you recognize your inner light
And begin to give up the perpetual fight
Take a step toward nature and deeply receive
Releasing your suffering, and feeling deep relief.
For in nature we can find deep healing
The chance to recognize all we are feeling
Moving up and beyond life’s suffering
And accepting the Spirit’s natural offering.
