Nature Minuscule and Gigantic
Twisted, contorted roots
Strung across the foot path
Solidly spread and grounded
In between, fine, dried, soft pine needles.
Baby spruce trees spreading
Tall pine trees not so well.
Virginia Falls higher than Niagara.
Sun's magic spreading light,
Warmth and sparkles.
Lighting the fire in my heart
Oh butterfly, butterfly
How magnificent your home.
Above the rock escarpment
Lining the Nahanni gorge.
Smashing, thrashing, tumbling
Rumbling north to the Arctic.
Roaring, chaotic, hustling & bustling
Forming mist, flying high.
Beneath my feet a dragon flies
Flutters, sunning and resting on a leg.
A triangle rock, rising up from
The middle of the torrent.
Carved through eons by water power
Tunnelling, funnelling temple steps below.
All around, rushing, gushing topsy
Turvey water explosions.
Shouting out, sounding high and low
I am here, admire my magnificent force.
A mist above the falls captures
A mystical rainbow beauty.
Amongst the trees, colourful mushrooms
White, brown, orange and yellow.
Red cranberries, shining through
Pale, dark, lime green leaves.
Yellow buttercups open wide
Different textures, shapes and shadows.
For all our astonishments
These are my Heavenly Delights.
