The Flowing Stream

I walk aside the flowing stream
With the green glow of the sun’s light shining through
The draping leaves that shelter me.

The clean water carries stones and pebbles
And playful fish who dance
To the music of the singing birds.

The birds’ morning symphony
Calms me to a restful harmony
With life’s surrounding beauty.

My meditative state takes me
To the place beyond this picturesque
Imagery, to the place that nature can’t explain.

What can? I don’t know,
But when I’m woken by the sound of feet on
Trodden clay, all I know is that nature doesn’t need explanation.

Its beauty is there
For all to see
And that is that.

Artist's Description

People see the beauty of nature everywhere and never really think about how beautiful it really is. Its been so nice to see on RedBubble the amount of people who do acknowledge the beauty of nature, but now I want to pose the question as to why it is so beautiful and whether there’s a need for anything beyond nature. This is my first poem for a while so I hope you like it.
