Eyes of Mother Nature
Not just the sky itself they are every ocean and stream
Windows of beauty fringed in verdant shades of green.
Look deeply, in there, for rainbows, flowers and rain
Not a trace of sadness shows for things that cause her pain.
Content within her powers of evergreen renewal
Her eyes so often soft are secret, mystic jewels.
Resplendent, they reflect bright fires of sunset hues
So much she gives us, yet we never pay the dues.
These eyes- so beautiful, we her children fill with hurt
Beware, the day will come, her precious gaze she will avert.
