The noonday sky
Casting its shadow
Upon the minds of men
The known becomes the unknown
Primal emotion seeping through
Cracks civilisation’s illusions
Constants hidden and thrown into question
Despite itself logic loses control
Great Nature reminds us of our place
Reliant upon her bounty
Life and death are in her gift
Children of earth and stars
Turn towards the source
To watch and wait

    Another hauntingly beautiful poem, Sue. Very true. I would say it’s a gem of a poem, but it’s not – it’s a diamond! 😉

    Just when we think we have it figured out, the cosmos interrupts…but of course you conveyed that much more beautifully. (K)


  6. You captured everything I feel resonating throughout the world, right now, Sue. I too, turn to source always looking for answers but finding none. Nature does soothe the soul. My morning walks sustain me and fill me with joy. I love your words. ❤
