I know nature as fresh forest, surging, pulsing green
Shooting shockwaves that consign me to consumed serene

The way rays of a blazing sun stir me into a glacial lake
Senses unwound, undone, in one stabbing, thrilling ache

I do not often know nature by taxonomy or rote
But by gallop in my heart at first spring of newborn goat

I feel the force of nature in full abundance, yet economy
I know nature swirls through me the way Van Gogh knows astronomy
