Nature's Persuasion
By: Lorraine Pearson
June 26, 2008


Gently I'm persuaded
As the wind coaxes me to remember
All that real living is about!
My eyes slowly ascend to the underbelly of the pine
Tracing each branch;
Twisted, yet balanced-
In the way only nature can design,
And I am reminded over and over
How beautiful asymmetry is- everywhere to behold!
Though it may appear hodge-podge at first,
In the big picture…
There is a universal common thread
Tying it all together—
I simply must look beyond man's feeble attempts
To harmonize with it all…

"I simply must look beyond man's feeble attempts
To harmonize with it all…"
I agree with your logic. To become one with nature. Need to create a lifetime friendship. No weakness in the excellent poetry.

I have pine trees around my house. When I need a break I walk outside and look up into the exact spindle of branches that you describe. The breeze caresses stresses like experienced hands under the canopy of green. Beautiful poem Lorraine.

It turns out there are many things that don't need fixing after all.. Not the least of which is this particular little slice of poetic perfection.
As a couple of the guys I work with who live in Texas might say, "Ya'll sho' do write perdy, ma'am".

Wonderful poem

I particularly liked the line "My eyes slowly ascend to the the underbelly of the pine"

The imagery is magnificent

Bravo
