Balance!

Balance 3

Life is always
A balance
No matter what.

Good and bad
Happy and sad
Rich and poor
Good health or not.

The moment
Our lives
Goes out of balance
Nature puts it back again.

As nature is always
In balance
So how else can we
Live on mother earth?

As we too are
Part of mother earth
We need to be in balance
At all times.

The moment
We go against
Life pushes us
Back again.

Not knowing
The rules of life
Will bring hard
Lessons to us all!

Wonders of Nature !

Bird 2a

Sometimes I just,
Sit by myself.
Not doing anything but,
Just spending my time.

Gazing up at,
The sky and the clouds.
The birds flying by,
Even aeroplanes !

In the night,
The dark blue sky,
The bright yellow moon,
And the shinning stars !

The beauty of nature.
For us to,
Enjoy.

Bring peace,
To the mind,
And,
Joy to the heart.

Do you know,
How fortunate we are ?

As all these
Wonders are,
Blessings from above !

For us to enjoy,
To be happy
In our lives.

To bring peace,
And
Joy to the world !

Trees !

tree-4

I think I shall never see,
A poem lovely as a tree,
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed,
Against the earth’s, sweet flowering breast;
A tree that looks at God all day,
And lifts her leafy arms to pray.

A tree that may in Summer wear,
A nest of Robins in her hair.
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are made by people like me,
But only God can make a tree !

~Joyce Kilmer
