Natures Silent Reverence

From the dustiest of deserts

to the lush trees hanging heavy with Spanish moss

there is a feeling of reverence.

The roar of the waves as they hit the cliffs and break

or the gentle lapping of the lake against the shore

the sun reflecting diamonds and colors against the water

bring tears of reverence.

From red rock formations with the vortex of healing energy

to the tallest peak of the snow topped range.

Solid, ancient, awe-struck, reverence.

Listen to the silence, the wind, the water. Stop talking, stop judging, just listen.

Accept the beauty that surrounds you, envelops you, become one, breathe deep, connect.

The beauty is not asking anything from you, it doesn’t care how much you weigh, what your income is, how many earthly possessions you own. It is simply nature, silent, reverent.

  1. I love this all so much. A call to slow and stop and look around. All is not bad. There is beauty among us even when we hurt. Listen to something other than the voice in my head. Love the idea that nature expects nothing of us in return, it is only there for us to explore, take in, and be. Thank you for such beautiful imagery to think about. Many wise words in this poem.

  2. Thank you! I really appreciate your feedback. I always, always hesitate before I hit the publish button for most things I write, but especially my poetry. Poetry is such a stretch for me. I have never studied the rules, but when Im compelled, I go for it. I think because I typically write and speak about mental health, its a way for my brain and creativity to “just be.” I love how you describe how it teaches us discipline in diction and to be economical with our word choices. That is so true!

  3. I love poetry. I have come to love superb narrative, lyrical poetry, and I’m a sort of neo-formalist in my own style of poetry. Poetry teaches us discipline in our diction, and to be economical with our word choices. It’s no easy task. This was truly beautiful and unique.
