The Beauty of Nature – Poem

Leaves dance a ballet in the billowing winds,
Snowflakes glisten as they float to our skin.
Rain drops sparkle as they fall from the sky
and the sunshine that beats down, brings everyone alive.

The true beauty of nature is brightened by a rainbow
and the magic of its colours are, truly, delightful.
Rainbows represent hope, love and compassion;
and smiles, awe and joy are formed by its creation.
The wonder of the rainbow fills us with gratitude – 
a gratitude for the world, the world that we live in.

Night time is brought to a beautiful end
when the sun fades away
and a sunset ascends.
Sunsets promise a new beginning,
a beginning that brings: peace, harmony and belonging.
Sunsets allow us to connect to ourselves
and helps us to cherish these moments
with others, as well.
Sunsets fade away the emotions of the day
and fill us with warmth and gratitude, for getting through today.

The picturesque sunrise soon emerges
and brings about strength, courage and excitement:
What will today bring and what adventures will arise?
That’s what a new day is for – to bring about surprise.
Breath-taking colours illuminate the horizon
and break through the darkness, that’s in the past now.
Birds are now awake and singing their enchanting songs
and brighten our awareness of the world that we belong.
A fresh page is created for us to explore today
and hopefully by the end, we will value what we have each day.
