Nature’s Fashion Show

 

fall color april 22

 

The trees and bushes

on the runway line

waiting for their catwalk

looking just fine

 

First come the trees

the leaves dressed in gold

sparkling as they drop

when the weather turns cold

 

Next comes some bushes

all dressed in red

the catwalk is dripping

in colors as they wed

 

The fashion show continues

with an evergreen

blending with the rest

a beautiful scene

 

Some colorful fruit

enters the show

it’s all so fashionable

a scene on the go

 

The catwalk is full

the trees and bushes take a bow

cameras are flashing 

photos sure to wow

A Nature Partnership

big tree reservoir overlook natchez trace

The young sapling

is planted in the ground

partnering with the land

fruitful to be abound

 

Taking from the soil

the nutrients that it needs

growing strong and tall

edging out the weeds

 

It is mature now

giving fruit in the spring

food falling down

spread like a ring

 

The leaves begin to fall

returning nutrients to the land

partnering with the soil

replenishment is the plan

 

The cycle continues

the process of give and take

trees and soil

each season they make

 

God has blessed them

a wonderful partnership

living in harmony

on this planet’s spaceship

Nature’s Toothbrush

colorado park river

We clean our teeth

several times a day

with commercial toothbrushes

not nature’s way

 

God has provided

for our many needs

brushing our teeth

a way in nature to heed

 

Using a brush

made with twigs or spines

bristles from animal hairs

make it clean just fine

 

Then create toothpaste

using essential oils

found in nature’s leaves

coming from the soil

 

We are made from this planet

created to thrive

God provides everything

we need to survive

 

Brushing our teeth

preserving the planet too

having a clean mouth

speaking praises anew

 

My soul is nourished

by all that is provided in nature

learning to appreciate

how awesome is our Creator

Ducks in the Park

ducks in strawberry patch park april 23

Ducks walking in the park

watching the people by day

dropping crackers on the path

as they go on their way

 

The ducks are happy

visiting this park

there is plenty of water

a place to nest after dark

 

They cringe at the sight

of the litter that people leave

taking away the beauty

damage to nature is believed

 

Our souls are renewed

when we take care of the land

picking up litter

giving the ducks a hand

 

The park is now clean

ducks swim and wonder

will care for the park continue

is something to ponder

 

God gave parks to us

a refuge that is beautiful indeed

keeping nature free of litter

is our choice to succeed

Nature

petrified forest water path 2 april 14

Nature is so beautiful

in each and every way

God gave His perfect creation

to admire each day

 

We walk along the paths

enjoy the river runs

never giving a thought

of not having fun

 

I cringe at the thought

of nature going away

not having a place to go

for serenity and to pray

 

Taking care of this planet

is our charge

not wasting its resources

by living large

 

God gave us nature

to provide for our needs

we must use its resources wisely

with wisdom to heed

 

My soul is nourished

grateful for God’s grace

in the beauty of nature

observing each place
