the lessons of nature

the lessons of nature

A Poem by linda m. crate

Nature has many lessons if we listen.

the lessons of nature
it's a quiet night
the calm
before the storm, but i
revel in the silence;
let the jeweled rubies of the
night smile me their wisdom
as cars zoom past
their sweet nothings away
in a whisper
of exhaust�"
it's a quiet night
and all the stars have
something to say to
me so i listen,
and glare at the echoes
of conversation
upon the silence of my
indigo butterflies
caught in
the belly of a pregnant night�"
all the world
is silence,
and i am it's island
listening to the whispers of both
sea and wind.
