Nature’s Heart

If Nature had a human heart
how fickle she would be –
one day fiery, another ice,
so much based on jealousy.

If humans had Nature’s heart,
then instinct would be key –
to each their own understood
a master plan for harmony.

Reflections

How do we recognize truth
in what is reflected back to us
especially when intrinsic knowing
has been domesticated out of us –
servility replacing preservation?

We are drawn by an insatiable
thirst to drink from the well
of human connections, require
acknowledgment, appreciation,
cannot bear to conceive of a life

of loneliness – we are social,
travel in packs, affectionate
souls conditioned to co-habitate,
habits instructing outcomes –
would be lost without mirrors.
