Nature is a language...
Continuing our Garden theme, this piece came as a result of our invitation to our readers to add to this blog (find our more, here). On this Midsummer Day, why not take a wander in a park, or just a walk in your garden (or, in my garden, sit on a stone because there’s nowhere else to go) and wonder at what language you can find there…
Nature Is A Language Can’t You Read?
Not yet, and maybe never but
I am content to learn
the letters, trace their shapes
and know that each page
will unveil a new joy and
that learning is the point
and understanding that I
might never understand
is the end.
