Nature Poem

Nature Poem short poem

for Shimah

A nature poem
should be about
snow hushed woods late at night,
a rainbow’s refracted light,
counting rings on fallen trees,
glades full of honey bees,
autumn’s harvest, summer flowers,
the sun, the earth, the moon, the stars,
a nature poem should be about
clouds and daffodils.

It should never be about
beaches without children,
oceans without boats,
dawn without birdsong,
sunrise without hope,
bedtime stories by moonlight,
digging holes in the sand,
lives measured in days,
never holding her hand.

Shimah, nature.
