Mother Nature’s Time is Not Done

Mother Nature’s Time …

Mother Nature's Time
Mother Nature’s Time …

Mother Nature’s time is not done
Nor will it ever be,
May she ever remain glorious
And in perfect harmony.

I have seen her suffer for long
Heard cries of animals in mist,
A feeling of great sadness comes o’er me
That my soul cannot resist.

This sadness, forlorning, a longing,
It is so akin to pain,
And my soul relates to sorrow
Like the mist relates to the rain.

Come walk with me my friend,
Among the forest so deep,
Let us not forget the nature,
Lovingly put in our keep.

Too many have forgotten,
Many have forsaken
Mother Nature’s pure beauty,
Never giving, just taking.

Let’s walk awhile and listen
To music of the forest,
Hear soft sounds of the Mother’s song,
When all within is at rest.

Afternoon fading sun shards
Are thinner as night falls,
The nocturnal animals and birds
Awaken to sing their calls.

The long day of troubled thoughts
Fade as night falls with ease,
The restless soul is now at rest
With beautiful melodies.

This beauty of the Mother’s song
Soothes all worry and care,
Peace flows like a benediction,
Which follows after prayer.

Forget not nature’s fair garden,
We all have a choice,
To lend the help we can to nature
With the power of our voice.

Mother Nature’s time is not done
Nor will it ever be,
May she ever remain glorious
And in perfect harmony.

I have always liked to write. It is important to me that writing comes from my heart and soul. When writing poetry, if I do not feel a spiritual connection to what I am writing on, I will discard it and go on to something I can connect with on a spiritual level. I live in the moment, I write from the past or beyond the veil. When writing fiction I go with whatever inspires me at the moment - it could be funny, sorrowful, romantic or sometimes done with the use of colloquial language from mountain folk or other cultural regions. I began writing content online in 2007, starting with BellaOnline - A Voice For Women, where I was the Native American Editor, Folklore & Mythology Editor, and the Appalachian Editor. I also wrote articles for The Examiner, Daily Two Cents, and Yahoo. I am a freelance writer for Fiverr. I am currently an author on HubPages, a member/author of the Maven Coalition, and Senior Editor and an author for The Creative Exiles. Most of what I write takes a lot of research and I love it. Even if it is a fictional story, I will research for accuracy in whatever it takes to make my characters, their era, their location, etc. become realistic to the reader. I hope you enjoy my works. Thank you for visiting.

    A lovely verse Phyllis, and the natural world will go on regardless, in one form or another always progressing. Humanity seems a blight on nature, but the natural world needs us as much as we need it. We continually transfer energy to the earth, part of its cycles of being, and she gives energy back. It is a symbiotic relationship. The problem remains in our court: how we disregard the need for balance and harmony, and draw far too much in resources. Cheers!

      You are so right, Tony, that it is a symbiotic relationship. I appreciate your thoughts and support, thank you. Take care.

    Awesome piece Phyllis – in the end the meek will inherit the Earth – in my mind that is when Mother Nature takes control again.
