To Dance In The Light Of The World


I in my garden alone yet not,
for I feel a presence’s
with me seeking the same from
its beauty the
tranquillity that only nature
can provide.

Flowers with such sweet smell,
and  colors of the
rainbow brightly adorn their
dress, swaying softly in
the spring breeze, telling me of
this days delights.

Who is this presence that I feel  
with me? Could
it be the “other”? In a state of
wonderment at the beauty
that life can behold.

This other presence I have felt
before in times that
I let my guard down to the
natural beauty around
me. Why is that?

Is it because the other is “I” in
my most natural and
purest state . With no fear in my
sight’s or trembling in
my members. My souls reflection
unharmed by this realm I
reside in.

The flowers tell a story true, for
they dance in unison
with no fear of man do they
posses and from birth
to death show there full beauty
not only when it is safe.  

Shall I ever be one in union
with all that I am ,so as to
dance in the light of the world
before it is to late?

There is something magical in nature, I have no doubt about that. You can lose yourself in its beauty and find yourself or another part of yourself,
"This other presence I have felt
before in times that

natural beauty around
me. Why is that?"

Fantastic, and beautiful.

"Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? "
Douglas Adams.

Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky

"You have your very own number
They dress your cage in its nature
Once you roared now you just grunt lame
Pace around pathetic pound games

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

They drag sticks along your walls
Harvest your ovaries dead mothers crawl
Here comes warden, Christ, temple, elder
Environment not yours you see through it all

Wanna get out won't miss you sensaround
To carry your own dead to swing your tyre tricks
Wanna get out here you're bred dead quick
For the outside,
The small black flowers that grow in the sky

Here chewing your tail is joy"

Richey Edwards

Yes, you can always find your true self in nature.  Nature has a way of clearing away your pains and angers as well as your doubts and fears.  What a wonderful way to display the true greatness of nature.  Thank you for sharing I look forward to reading more.

Dance, Cerenity ... dance.
The wind encircles you
and gently lifts you
along nature's dance floor.
Tip-toe through the light of life.

Beautiful, hon.

Wow. Really great, Cerenity. Nature has a most impressive impression on all of us, doesn't it?

Hi Cerenity - Great Poem -
Nature is astoundingly beautiful and
I believe it is part of those that want to
let it in.
