Poetry In Nature

I am a morning person; attuned to dawn

I awake before a storm; to silence I am drawn

Peace abounds amidst humanity’s sleep

Noise and sorrow is what we reap

I hear the ground crackle; my sole company

I hear the trees rustle; my soul’s company

In the wind I hear the past singing

Echoes of yesterday in my ear ringing

The sun rises with a promise; a clean slate

In the silent whisper of nature; a clear fate
