When we respect nature and nurture it, the gift is ours.
|She breathes - azure mist - a Zephyr's kiss.
Her rhythm cascades in hypnotic crescendo
And I am transfixed
She is a jewel - faceted in perfection.
Refracting light in generous abundance
And I am awed
Her bounty cannot be bartered - she is wed.
Veiled in splendor she falters in my caress
And I am stunned
Where lies the legato - a moment past?
Celibate she stands withholding favors
And I am broken
Beyond volition she begs a reprieve - requiem refused.
She wears humility, an ill fitting gown
And I am humbled
Oh pray the mistral benevolent be - the Siren slumbers.
"Nereids- a gossamer gown", the master whispers
And I am hushed
Iliad lie down - Thetis crests a mighty swell -
She is renewed - her cadence restored
And I am whole
Azure mist - a Zephyr's kiss - she breathes once more
The Sea - Adagio - Bravo!
And I am blessed
