N is for Nature
by Guy Dauncey
N is for Nature, miracles everywhere
filling the planet with green creeping vines,
from tiniest microbes to wandering wolverines,
explosion of living, wings, teeth and eyes.
Starting with atoms then built into molecules,
mixed with rich carbon infused with belief
in a future so possible, strange and improbable,
bursting all over from crevice to reef.
Nature’s our origin, seed, life and everything,
total surrounding, total within.
To think we are separate, better or different,
that has to be the original sin.
