Nature’s Reflections #LBC12

In the flora beneath building’s shadows I see,
a mirror to creation’s stark beauty
they thrive still so celebrate a jubilee 
of thousands and thousands of centuries
and in them - a portal to the past - wild and free
is a glimpse into the face of God.

In fauna frolicking in grasses long,
is a mirror to humanity’s very own song
the rhythm of a million hearts beating at once, so strong
but only when we gather do we sing along
and forget our worries, all that is wrong
child-like once more as we unite. 

In the flora and fauna of this land,
is a mirror to the lines that crease our hands
a window to the origins from which we stand
we have strayed away but still hold a strand
of the perfection of nature, every grain of sand
and from them we learn how to live.
 
Thanks for reading this! Please note that the lack of punctuation and capital letters is intentional, used to reflect the power of simplicity that is described in the poem. I wrote this for lianhabanana!‘s contest - check it out! https://writetheworld.com/groups/1/shared/167050/version/330845
