A Valentine for Mother Earth

cactusHe who cannot see the beauty in everyplace
Lacks vision, and
He who does not sense the value in all living things
Lacks feeling, and
He who does not cry at the loss of nature’s creations
Lacks a heart;
The truth in such things can be seen
In every desert sunrise and sunset on the beach,
The truth in such things can be heard
In the beating wings of waterfowl and in the springtime song of peepers,
The truth of this can be felt deep within the bones
As each wave thunders on to shore and lone wolf calls plaintively for his mate.
