Embracing Nature’s Song

Learning to listen

by Joanne Troppello

A restless wind weaves in and out of the trees.

Its fierceness moves thick trunks and sways

green ferns carpeting the forest floor.

I sit staring at all the green surrounding me.

Small ferns and green shrubs are joined by

Birch, Oak, and Elm trees as they reach

high, drinking in the sun’s enriching rays.

Sun streaming from blue sky warms me.

The restless wind lessens to a whisper,

then grows in its fierceness again.

Green leaves and fronds sway in the wind.
