Nature’s Call

By Tony DeLorger © 2010

We have come along way, humanity, our technologies transforming our lives on every level. But at what expense has it been for our so-called evolution? Our home now suffers in every way from our greed and superiority complex. We ravage life on a gigantic scale, and continue to deplete our planet of all its needs. We are so attached to our cement jungles that nature itself has become so unfamiliar.

I believe that we can rectify this travesty, by first acknowledging the life around us: the creatures and the beauty of our home. We are not the keepers of our planet; we barely accept its existence. Generally we have the attitude the earth is here for us to do as we wish. The reality: we have not the morality or capacity to understand the balance needed to live in peace and abundance. We must learn this lesson now or we are doomed.

Each day, look to nature and absorb what we have, and recognise the gift of life. It is only then will we learn to take responsibility for our home.

Woodland Life

Tony DeLorger (19/4/07)

Titchy crickets bark at night,

While sleeping dogs by fires, delight.

Huddled birds like fluffed round balls,

Despise the frost on timbers tall.


Etched white moon suspended high,

Smiling wistful heaven’s eye.

Scurried fur and claw repeal,

No death or food tonight appeal.


Instead like men by fire’s light,

In burrows warm they spurn the night.

To forage when that golden orb,

Release the shadows day is born.


Cabin crack and timber moan,

To greet the frosted vista shown.

Through misty panes to sun’s delight,

Humans yawn farewell to night.


Woods alive with woken beasts,

To join the throng of living see.

Cloudless cover rich in hue,

Until the jewels of dark ensue.
