Nature’s Footsteps


I am darkness and light
I encompass all
the raging storm
and the cool summer breeze
are my brother and my sister

The moon is my warrior
he safeguards my honor
nature kissed my forehead with a star
the songs of the forest birds
escort the morning in for me

At my feet lay tranquil pastures
green ferns wave their sentiments
as the evening sun walks by
and we stroll hand-in-hand
into the night
