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

Sweet Summer Food

small pear 2 april 14

Eating a pear while walking

on a warm summer day

grown locally

from a tree on my way

 

My soul is nourished

eating this way

helping local farmers

living by the bay

 

God gave this land

to provide for our needs

lovely sweet fruits

from which to feed

 

There are festivals

across the land

celebrating local produce

with music and bands

 

It is summer

good things are abound

sharing with others

having fun all around

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
