Serenity’s Splendor

so much life in nature
give rise in splendor
all that is in beauty
is a spiritual serenity

what eyes conceive, a thought to ponder
everything convenes, commune in wonder
my spirit arise with angels in heavens high
as we sing my songs in the rhythm of my sigh

so much to adore
with meaning and more
the creation to admire
from lone heart's desire

each day a whisper in the wind blowing
to my inner self, this is my new dawning
as i live in between my dreams and illusion
let my heart insist on reasons for passion

    There is no doubt a serenity in the coolness and beauty of Nature… and that coolness pervades our soul if only we have some relaxed time to admire and appreciate the loveliness of bounteous Nature! An awesome write dear poet!

    This poem is an excellent reflection on the seeming contradictions and real paradoxes of human existence.
