Results Might Seem Strange

We tend to believe
humans are nature’s axis.
Then we are surprised.

Nature’s will to thrive
respects no human constructs
standing in its way.

Though results seem strange,
nature’s grand plan embraces
its own renewal.

Once, my husband and I watched a documentary on what would happen after nuclear annihilation. Nature was the hardiest! Humans? Nope!
I digress! Love the poem and the theme of renewal.

Robert Parker said...

Beautiful and insightful!

Nature... continues.

We also forget that we are a part of nature.

And thus... we can continue. Because it's in our... nature.

Karen said...

In the grand scheme things, we are part of nature. That's why I never give up hope of renewal.

Nature does its thing, we cant stand in its way...does seem to work out in the long run

so true Judy... I love Gail's comment, it resonates completely for me!

Judy at Peace Be With You said...

Mary, thanks.

Muff, as if you and I didn’t know already that the body is far from hardy.

Robert, yes, we are part of nature, but not its most essential element necessarily. Indeed, often we are at cross purposes.

Karen, yes, the renewal aspect of nature applies to humans too. We just might not recognize the renewed form.

Gail, I love your “some days I am the weeds, … “

Kim, it does work out in the long run. We just might not be able to recognize anything familiar in it.

Laura, we both resonated with Gail’s comment.
