The seeds of life

Sow seeds in a swirling vortex

Witness them scattered far and wide,

Watch the landscape as propagation

Soon begins and energy sparks

Life into its infancy,

To grow and reach for the light that feeds,

Every aspect of it’s being,

The amazing miracle, the seed,

That carries the spark of life within its husk

In creation and nature trust,

Then all it needs is the water of life,

All it needs is cosmic, universal light,

To spring forth such precious life.

We are all products of seeds

With different types of biological needs,

But still the process is a miracle of creation,

But in a slight variation

And still we grow stronger when in the light,

All things born from seeds are a beautiful sight,

That when it blossoms are a sight to see,

From love, in peace and majesty.

Forest dweller

Forest dwell that’s me

Living life among the trees

The dappled shade sparkling

The various shades of the leaves

Add a colourful beauty to all I see.

Among the tees I see a pond

Filled with lily pads as well as reeds

I see the wildlife in the water

Assorted insects frogs and ducks

And out the corner of my eye I see

A deer breaking cover which fascinates me

Hidden so well within the ferns and bracken

I did not even see it there.

Then I hear in the undergrowth

The scurrying of rabbits and squirrels

These amuse me the most

Playing and running with lightening speed

Up and down the numerous trees

Wow I am so amazed by nature

And the gift it offers me

Too spend this time dwelling in this forest of verdancy.

Moonlit bay

As I was going to work today

I noticed a super moon lighting up the bay

And as other people got off the train

Scurrying along their busy way

They seemed oblivious to it

But it took my breath away

It’s light highlighted the the gentle waves

Lapping across the moonlit bay

And I felt humbled to witness this beautiful display

It made me realise there so much beauty around us every day

But it requires us to stop and see along the way

To just interrupt our futile busy days.

Conveyor of bad news

I don’t wish to be

The conveyor of bad news

I don’t want to be

The one to upset you

But if things don’t change

Extinction will come our way

I don’t want to be

The one spreading bad news

Though the message is true

Our time here is limited

If we continue this way

Exploiting our earth the way we do

The resources aren’t unlimited

It’s resistance to pollution isn’t infinite

And cutting down all the tree will make it hard to breathe

So you need to see

The truth and the reality

Not the lies and the illusory

Spread by the men of greed.

I don’t want to be

The conveyor of bad news

I don’t want to be

The one who instills fear into you

But we need to change

For earth and humanities sake.

Natures view

Unspoilt meadows

Bordered by hedgerows

Clusters of trees

And views of lea’s

A blue sky above

And the sun warming me

Rabbit’s scurry and dart about

I spy a fox diving for cover

As well as a grouse

It’s a fascinating

And wonderful scene

Away from the noise

It all feels so clean

The air we breathe

The beauty we see

Nature share it’s wonders

For you and me

And it’s our duty to nurture

To help it prosper

To ensure others understand

Not to take it for granted

To save it for future generations

To behold with amazement and awe

For without these beautiful scenes

What would life be worth living for.

I’d settle for beauty

I would settle for a moonlit night

I’d settle for watching the stars shining bright

I’d settle for a cosmic universal dream

I’d settle for the sun shining bright

I’d settle for a green meadow

Filled with wild flowers

I’d settle for a forest of eldritch trees

I’d settle for the sand and sea

Waves washing over me

I’d settle for journey on a ship going as far as the eye can see

I’d settle for a sunset

Settling over the horizon

I’d settle for the beauty

Of all of these things.

Species of nature

Nature is an amazing thing

Especially when you look carefully at all the species,

From those that crawl through the undergrowth,

Or dwell deep down in the depths of the sea,

To those who are giants that prowl the earth

And swim in the seas,

Not forgetting those that fly on beautiful wings,

Nature is an amazing miracle to me

Perfection personified and each unique.

Ears of corn

I gaze with eyes aglow

At a field of corn marvelling at the way it grows

As the rich new orange sun rises up above the ears of corn

I see beyond the sky promising storm

But that is far off in the distance

And cannot weaken my resistance

For the beauty I spy

In this my beholding eye

Almost bringing about a tear

As I think and tremble with worry and fear

Of natures future in a brutal world

That has forgotten love and taken beauty for granted

Forgot what tenderness took place when this crop was planted

And the nutrients nature granted

To provide this crop with goodness to grow

When as a seed it was sown

For this perfect moment to be known

By eyes like mine who appreciate beauty such as this.

Food for thought

Let food be the spice of life

But give focus to eating what is right

Certain foods can enhance your light

And have tastes that will delight

Be mindful in all you eat

Trace the foods origins

Respect and appreciate

The journey they took too your plate

Show respect to natures gift

For it sustains us and helps us live

Not the fake food processed and sugary

But those of organic beginning and end

They are the best for us with no additives

If it was required nature would have encompassed it

Truth is, they are not needed

Natural food has all we need to exist.

Plateaus

Plateaus descending down hillside

And on each different things are grown

Different crops depending on what seeds are sown

All around the green grass grows in lustre

And the farmers ensure they muster

Everything to get the perfect yields

It’s hard work and they work their fingers to the bone

Nurturing everything trying to hone

The best results they can to feed themselves

And sell the access to everyone else

And as I sit and watch this played out

In a scenery of beauty without any doubt

It takes my breath away and calms my mind

Helps my meditation become defined

As a lesson of how life can be grown from seed

Given loving care and honing all things

A near perfect result can be achieved

Which is just what humanity needs.
