Nature and I are inseparable
We are constantly in conversation
with each other.
I have a respectful admiration for it;
I know its beauty quite well.
What’s so refreshing is
That it’s still a place
Wild at heart….
When I walk in the woods or climb mountains
There is always something different about Nature’s
The state of God’s unique brushwork…
I celebrate God’s world of nature:
I am humbled by its splendor and serenity,
so long a part of me.
