nature

one of my favorite places to be is outside. free. wild. happy. with no walls to trap me in, no roof to block the sky from my view. i have felt closer to god outside than i have anywhere else. i believe that he created this world for us to enjoy. and so i wrote a poem about it :)

i love to sit under the shade of a big tree.
i love the way the breeze ruffles my hair.
 i love the smell of the salty sea air,
the sound of the waves greeting the shore.
i love the smell of flowers
blooming in springtime.
i love to hear birds cheerily chirp.
i love to bask in the warm, bright sun.
i love the way i look up at the stars
and am reminded of your power.
i love to feel the earth underneath
my bare feet; the sand between my toes.
i am so thankful for the foods you created for us to eat.
and for the grains of sand so vast that nobody knows.
i love to watch the fresh, white snow
fall; so quiet and peaceful.
i love the towering, green mountains
so inviting and yet so powerful.
i love to be alone outside at night
and feel the wind on my face.
i pretend you're brushing me with kisses
and reaching out to touch my face.
i love the way the rain sounds on my roof.
and watching it splash and drip.
i love having places to run and to walk,
to swim, dance, play, and skip.
