Adopt The Pace Of Nature – Her Secret Is Patience

Title Quote: Ralph Waldo Emerson

Nature’s secrets are incredibly inspiring and bountiful
Life lessons are learnt that are not taught in school
Walking in Mother Nature, God’s natural Kingdom
With Awareness, will bring you insightful wisdom

Her efflorescence beauty is shown everywhere
Even in the depth of winter when much lies bare
There’s always splendour and miracles to view
When with your Soul Eyes, you choose to look through

In winter when all the leaves fall from a tree
The intricate branches are visible for scrutiny
Extending onwards and upwards into the sky
As we expand our consciousness up so high

Then spring arrives to enliven and lighten our days
Nature manifests its perfection in numerous ways
Beautifully delicate, pure blossoms flourish for a while
Showing us to appreciate NOW, then let go with a smile

Summer bestows nature’s miraculous abundance
Flowers overwhelming beauty give more evidence
Of the variety of life, it’s shapes, colours and size
Everyone is just perfect in God’s All-Knowing Eyes

Summer turns to autumn, or as some say fall
Change is in the air and nature heeds the call
Leaves burst into colour, then wither and die
As do all human beings, including you and I

The cycle is complete, a year has come and gone
Nature will eternally repeat it’s wondrous song
Teaching us through Awareness, year after year
If we are Open to it’s wisdom and ready to hear

All this is provided at a sure and steady pace
Nature is perfect, there’s never a need to race
Everything is accomplished, in a time of her own
Nature’s secret is Patience, to us she has shown

About This Poem

As I have mentioned on some of my other posts, I was rather blind to the awesomeness of nature until I began to follow the teachings of Abraham-Hicks. I was awakened to its magnificence on a simple walk to get some photographs to use for quotes on my website (Spiritual Quotes To Live By) and have been amazed at the sights and lessons taught by nature ever since.

The Amen Of Nature Is Always A Flower

Title Quote: Oliver Wendell Holmes

At the bus stop, passing time in my solitary thoughts
My gaze rested upon some nearby empty ground
There was nothing much at all to see, it seemed
Some grass, soil and stones were all my eyes found

Nothing changed over those cold winter months
As each week I waited patiently and surveyed
When rain fell soaking the earth, I noticed
Muddy puddles developed, where children played

As the days began to get a little longer
They became brighter and warmer too
I began to notice a change on the ground
Signs of life were starting to break through

The weeks went by as Spring finally arrived
Some days of rain, but mostly warm and bright
Various shades of green shoots covered the ground
Although different, united in seeking the light

Showers of petals from nearby blossoming trees
Cascaded upon me as I gazed at the ground
Gone now the blankness of winter past
Abundant foliage and flowering buds I found

I’ll never forget that summers day I arrived
My senses were blasted by the sheer power
Of an awesome scene of vibrant colour and beauty
The Amen of nature is always a flower

About This Poem

This was the first time I wrote a poem for my blog.  On that day, after writing my thoughts on the quote, my thoughts wandered to when I lived in a village that had a long walk to the bus stop and the idea of this poem came to me.  When I write in ‘first person’ it is almost always a true part of my life, this poem is one of the exceptions, but it is based on my experiences.

While looking back through my previous blogs, in December 2016, I came across this poem and thought it would be a good idea – and an interesting challenge – to change the way I did my blog, so I began to write inspirational poems for each quote, rather than my thoughts on the quote or photograph.
