A Short Step into Nature

A Short Step into Nature


I pause before the step through Nature’s door

Which threshold invites me not, nor

Does it embrace my breach;

I am a part of nature, not so,

Although my terrain is vastly engineered

Constructed, concocted and contrived

To be utilitarian to say the least ~

Nature kept at long arm’s length

So as not to contaminate the sanitation

Of so-called modern habitation.

Bah, what do ‘they’ know? Naught

Of the truth. Nature holds the cures

For all man’s ills, if man would only

See beyond his limitations,

For the cures lie mainly in his brain.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
