Have you Ever Traveled Down Nature's Road?


Have you ever been  out to sea
on a moonlit night with the fresh salty breeze?
Have you ever stepped into a forest, and if
you did, how far would you travel until you were in?

Have you ever wondered during your nature trips
if the quiet, silent forest would have sound,
if you were not around?

Have you ever yodeled off atop a mountain,
to the echoing valley below?
Did you stop during your singing to
smell the cold glistening snow?

Have you ever been out camping to
wake ravenous and have to build a fire?
Have you ever found that certain secret spot
that only you admire?

Have you ever slept out at night under
the scintillating stars?  Did you ever wonder
how many planets there actually really are?

Have you ever passed a graveyard and wondered
what death was all about? Or stopped your car
along a lonely road to pick some litter up?

Have you ever sailed a ship, or swam the
sea or dived off a cliff?  Have you ever
gone to cut a tree and heard its piteous cry?

Have you ever seen a cactus laughing at the
scalding sun? Or touched a rattle snake
just for a little dangerous fun?

Have you ever questioned if the moon and sun
are suppose to be a pair? Or, do they both
shine brightly searching eagerly everywhere?

Have you ever tasted the pouring rain upon your
curious tongue? Or, did you ever climb a teetering
ladder and stand on its highest rung?
Have you ever stood waiting for the sun,
then suffered  from the heat?

Did you ever watch the rain and appreciate a storm?
Did you ever have the chance to help a stranger
who was calling in distress? Or, did you ever write a traveling nature poem at someone's request?

Have you ever likened a precious plant to a well nurtured child? Or wonder if a weed is like the child who grew up wild?

The plant that is tended and guarded with all that special care, is the one that roots up easiest
as it was not prepared.

Teresa you made me think about when I lived in California and me and my brothers would go hiking in the desert and came across quite a few rattlesnakes..even came upon a king snake swallowing a rattlesnake.  We used sticks and later my brother kept one for a pet.  One of my girlfriends had a few boa's so I became very familiar with snakes..if you know how to handle boa's they are fun...but don't mess with them thar rattlesnakes..cause they are dangerous and poisonous..Here in Hawaii they don't allow snakes..they have a few in the Honolulu Zoo.  James

Very beautifully written T.

All my love,
Jeffrey

 I lie awake in a world filled with dreams,
but dreams can be so real when you don't know you're asleep
