Nature’s Veil

Nature’s veil is elusive
She is a sprite peeping out
for mere seconds
Till you see her and then
she is gone
A memory you cannot
be certain is real
And an essence too pure to dispute

Above earth our species strives
for relevance and a mark of time
Underneath she susurrates
More sublime and full of meaning
than our little lives may be

A child may see her clearer
in the full morning of youth
And hear her sparkling laughter
in the rushing of a stream
And knowing life is not
ever what it seems
gives their young clear clarity
to her world of dreams

I'm drawn to blogging as a way to share ideas and consider what makes us who we are. Whether it's in our working life or our creativity, expression is a means to connect.
