Reminder

It is a reminder

we know little

about nature

whenever we visit

the great outdoors

that it is something

which is independent

of us

in which we had no part

in the making

but, we take it in

we breath it

we feel the warmth and the cold

of it

a reminder…

we can’t take it

with us to where we have

to return

we can only experience it

when we are there

for mere moments in time

and that the memory

of that experience leaves

us yearning

for there is

some great

power beyond

our capabilities

who

made all this

who keeps it

available

who keeps it

alive

as it

likewise

gives us

our own

sense

of

self.
