Kind and loving
Harsh and cruel
Nature feeds the snake
the precious eggs of the unwary
And stands guard
over the helpless
as they nap in the grass
The vastness of nature and the myriad of its facets is breathtaking and awe inspiring. It encompasses not just the earth or the trees that I connect to so strongly, not just the oceans and rivers and seas, not just the sky and clouds. She is not merely the sunsets and sunrises, not merely the storms and quakes.
She is all of these things. She is vicious and she is sweet, beautiful and horrible. Nor is she only a “she”… or a “he”.
Nature is vast… immeasurable… and ineffable.
Everything… and so much more.
