  • Mother nature.

    As a mother, she can be so cruel
    so fickle at will,
    do and be damned
    let live, or kill.
    She could kill me off
    in the blink of an eye,
    would let me freeze
    and then pass me by,
    would boil my blood
    and leave my bones to bleach
    and would not care
    to place water in my reach.
    But when she's good
    she can be oh so sweet
    and lay before me
    exotic food to eat,
    she will sugar my eye
    with her summer arrays,
    and share with me the bounties
    of her softest days.
    Her erotic perfumes
    heady and strong
    caress my senses all day long
    untill the moon, arrives to greet,
    with a silvery kiss upon the cheek.
    But this fickle mother courts a wary child
    who knows her moods can be violent and wild,
    and so, with care, I walk this land
    forever wary of her violent hand.

    This is a beautiful ode to the forces of nature that surround us! It's so true how things can change in an instant!

      Terrific rhyme and refreshing reflection on the ambivalence of nature; good to see a poem that deals with both sides.

        Strong, solid writing doc. Mother nature is bipolar, for sure!

          Hello docstorm, From tempestuousness to pacification and all her moods in between - you have captured the true essence of nature in poetic excellence. A true delight to read such fine poetry. Regards, Tony.

            Mother Nature herself can be our best friend, or our worst enemy. You just need to keep her on her good side if you want to live your days. Your entry has expressed the two sides of her well, in the most poetic sense also

                Joyous and wary, in balanced measure. The good, the bad, and the well written. Nicely done, docstorm!
