Report Story

by Julie Lacksonen

Mother Nature, our beloved,

We sometimes forget and ignore you,

Yet you wait with open arms.

*

Your soil grounds

Your scents awaken

The coolness of your breeze on a sun-drenched day embraces like a lover

The majesty of your mountains inspires

The chill of your waters refresh

The tickle of your grass on bare feet amuses

Your creatures entertain us, feed us, and befriend us

Your fresh air rejuvenates, stimulates, and heightens senses.

*

Sometimes you get angry with us -

It's no more than we deserve for taking you for granted.

You remind us with earthquakes, volcanos, and storms

That we are still the children and you,

The Mother.

*

Mother Nature, our beloved,

Forgive our wayward ways,

Our gluttonous living,

Our misuse and abuse

Of your generous gifts.

*

We are learning.

We wish to be welcomed by your outstretched arms.
