A Poem



Standing on the river bank

Swaying gracefully in the wind

Drinking deeply into my soul

Nature’s unending beauty

Strong winds may beat upon me

But they cannot tear me apart

Though storms may rip at my heart

I will not be destroyed

Ever growing and evolving

My roots planted deeply in the earth

The love of the universe fills my heart

And my spirit reaches towards the stars

In this moment I feel at peace

Knowing I am one with nature
