Visions of Nature


Sitting out there, on the edge of the sea,

Serene, tranquil, ever free, God's majesty.

Watching, with the eagle-eye and

Visionary dreams of the Seer,

Seeing from afar.

Waves rolling by, their crests and splashes,

Dancing with the atmosphere.

Sun and moon standing still.




Birds singing. Plants, creepers and daffodils,

Flowering towards Heaven

With enchanting fragrances.

Forests swaying gently with the breeze,

In a myriad of beautiful colours,

Fruit ripening with the seasons,

Releasing boundless energies:

The life-force in all its majesty.



Once more the sun is out, warm, radiant ...

The power of Divine providence is upon us.

And God's creatures, withdrawn for a time,

Into the spacious spirit of nature,

Returns whispering with the winds,

Contributing to Mother Earth

And walking Her dawns. - Manatita 19/08/1997.



Sacred Duty

Forest, You are the Creator's open book,

Where cricket's chant; birds recite verse;

Each stream a sacred psalm from the earth.

The sunlight shimmers through your boughs,

Creating a luminous canopy,

Where golden beams unchanged,

Break into a ceaseless revelation

Of your divine magnificence.



Nature

Descending down the winding path,

Your stillness draws me nearer, until

My breath becomes the breeze,

My steps the fluttering leaves.

Your rapture draws me inward,

As my Soul,

Diving deeper into your mystery,

Stands still, serene and silent,

As the ocean's bed.



On long weary days, I soothe my spirit,

Drinking of your grandeur to the fullest.

Absorbed in the wholeness of your sacred stillness,

As you whisper changes into the seasons.


How enchanting are your creatures,

And the foliages running through

The silence of your seasons.

While your colour and splendour,

Offer up themselves in contemplation,

Harvesting freedom and an unparelled zest for life.

Distilled into your power and majesty,

You perform your sacred duty for the Spirit of Creation. - Manatita 17/06/99

Thank You billybuc.

I was once in Bali with my Spiritual Teacher. He said that nature there was so beautiful that it helped us to meditate . He said that we did not need to meditate, that nature would meditate on our behalf. (Or something close to that) I'm usually devotional with my poetry, but these two are my most loved nature poems. Thanks a lot for your appreciation.

Capturing the aweesomeness of nature is difficult to do. Words to describe how it makes us feel often escape us. YOU found the words....I walked in that forest with you ....well done.

As a child the forest reached out to me and I spent a lot of time in the forest mesmerized by the spectacular sights and sounds I found there.

Sending Angels to you today :) ps

Received with love.

I have powerful ones which guide me, but hey, I love your heart of offering.

I spent a lot of time in the New Zealand forests. Amazing! Interesting though, this was written before.

I grew up in my grandfather's land, and I was also a young adventurer. I read Keats plus and I'm also gifted by my spiritual Teacher. Lots here.
