Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

The day we sprawled out
Is the day that nature called out

We cover up the river bank with cement
And build a bank
I am consumed
By the fact that we are consumers

We are just heartbroken people
Who want to be hopin people

We overstimulate our foods
While we overstimulate our minds
I am burdened
By the idea that we overburden ourselves

We try to be an “all-in” world
But we are just a fallen world

Another sign in a plaza is going up
And we are still looking for signs
Reach deep down inside
Down in the valley we keep our sanity

I know it isn’t easy to escape in nature
In order to try to reshape in nature

Just try little acts of being kind
You know the kind I am talking about
Love and nature is in us
You’ll love the purpose that resides there

    love the nature and little kindness you weaved in your poem, it is truly in us, we need to pause all the over stimulation and get back to basics, lovely words for a new year’s resolution

      Thank you so much, Gina. I echo your thoughts completely. ☺ Getting in touch with nature, internally, through meditation is a new year’s resolution for me. And getting outside to nature when I can. ☺

        Well, thanks for sharing that with me, Gina. 🙂 Nature used to be more widespread in the past but you can still find a striking flower or amazing sunset as you walk. I love little glimpses of God. 🙂

      Absolutely. 🙂 If let God flow through us we have more kindness. And to me, God and nature are interlinked. 🙂
