Nature’s Message By Jasen Sousa

Nature’s Message

Nature has a story to tell,
listen to the message being told.
The land we live on is neither Heaven nor Hell,
secret scripts are not always written in bold.
Whispers in the wind, pay attention,
people have many things to say, most of which is bad news.
Nature tells of truth ordinary humans forget to mention,
we search for answers and walk over clues.
Tears fall from the sky, making the ground wet,
the sun’s smile appears to dry the rain,
a drop falls from our eyes when we are upset,
a loved one comforts to minimize pain.
Listen to leaves on a windy day, they beg for your appreciation,
they are cheering, giving you a standing ovation.
