If I Was Nature

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.
