Nature knows


Nature knows

When it is time to die

It just surrenders its life


Knowing nothing of argument

Nor resistance

And when the time has come

To emerge or birth again

It summons the energy from deep within

And bursts forth

In all of its radiance

It does not ask

What do you want of me

But just radiates

From its core

What is deepest essence is

In a multitude of forms

What folly do we engage with

When we resist this process

For surely somewhere deep with

Our soul knows its destiny

That nature is its source

And its ultimate destination

And is always governed

By her seasons

Lying far beyond

Human reason


“Make like a tree and let the dead leaves drop.”
