The Beauty Of Nature You Are Aware Of

In the evening I sit in front of my house and feel the soft gentle breeze caress my face and cool my body. The breeze is simply beautiful and nature gives it free to me. Actually nature gives this free to everyone, but it seems that not everyone is aware of this.
Sometimes the sky is immensely blue. White silvery clouds glide almost imperceptibly against it. The clouds are never the same as they change their shapes continuously. These things are more beauty that I perceive around me.
Some days when the sky turns back with thick heavy clouds a distance curtain of falling rain can be seen. It appears as though some unseen hand is pouring water onto the land to nourish it. The sight is beautiful and it makes me feel closer to the beauty of the earth.
After a thunderstorm, the air is crisp and cool. Birds come out and sing out their joy to life. I sing too as I frolic barefoot on the cool wet grass beside my house. The frogs croak joyfully. Even the insects seem to buzz and shriek louder. I am sure they are all singing about how beautiful life is. Indeed it is.
In the night the stars make their appearance. Millions of these twinkling jewels can be seen in the black sky. How wondrous it is to gaze at the glory of the universe. No doubt I am just a tiny part of it, but to be able to take it in through my senses makes it even more wondrous.
At night the moon often makes its appearance. Sometimes it is round. Other times it is crescent-shaped. Nevertheless its presence adds to the beauty of the backdrop of stars in the far reaches of space. It is amazing that there are such things.
The little garden beside my house is filled with the things of nature. Little bees, butterflies and other insects fly among the flowers in search of food. The flowers themselves are brightly colored with every possible combination of colors and hues. I feast my eyes on the scene of immense activity and again witness the beauty of nature's innumerable wonders.
The beauty of nature is so simple and undemanding that we often fail to perceive it. Modern man is deluged with artificial things that cut out his awareness of nature. However I make it a point to smell the roses, to touch the morning dew, to listen to the songs of birds and to be aware of the great wonders that nature presents to me. I feel this great beauty within that is in tune with the great beauty without. Life in the forms nature gives to us is beautiful. We just have to be conscious enough to be aware of it.

Beauty Description Through Quotes

How strange that Nature does not knock, and yet does not intrude!  ~Emily Dickinson, letter to Mrs. J.S. Cooper, 1880

I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.  ~John Muir, 1913, in L.M. Wolfe, ed., John Muir, John of the Mountains:  The Unpublished Journals of John Muir, 1938

Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars... and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful.  Everything is simply happy.  Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance.  Look at the flowers - for no reason.  It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.  ~Osho

Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.  ~Kahlil Gibran

I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.... People think pleasing God is all God care about.  But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.  ~Alice Walker, The Color Purple, 1982

I am not bound for any public place, but for ground of my own where I have planted vines and orchard trees, and in the heat of the day climbed up into the healing shadow of the woods.  Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup.  ~Wendell Berry

And how should a beautiful, ignorant stream of water know it heads for an early release - out across the desert, running toward the Gulf, below sea level, to murmur its lullaby, and see the Imperial Valley rise out of burning sand with cotton blossoms, wheat, watermelons, roses, how should it know?  ~Carl Sandburg, Good Morning America, 1928

I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.  ~e.e. cummings

The poetry of the earth is never dead.  ~John Keats

I remember a hundred lovely lakes, and recall the fragrant breath of pine and fir and cedar and poplar trees.  The trail has strung upon it, as upon a thread of silk, opalescent dawns and saffron sunsets.  It has given me blessed release from care and worry and the troubled thinking of our modern day.  It has been a return to the primitive and the peaceful.  Whenever the pressure of our complex city life thins my blood and benumbs my brain, I seek relief in the trail; and when I hear the coyote wailing to the yellow dawn, my cares fall from me - I am happy.  ~Hamlin Garland, McClure's, February 1899

In wilderness I sense the miracle of life, and behind it our scientific accomplishments fade to trivia.  ~Charles A. Lindbergh, Life, 22 December 1967

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage

You can't be suspicious of a tree, or accuse a bird or a squirrel of subversion or challenge the ideology of a violet.  ~Hal Borland, Sundial of the Seasons, 1964

The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.  ~Galileo

I believe a leaf of grass is no less than the journey-work of the stars.  ~Walt Whitman

The sun is the epitome of benevolence - it is lifegiving and warmthgiving and happinessgiving, and to it we owe our thanksgiving.  ~Jessi Lane Adams

Good heavens, of what uncostly material is our earthly happiness composed... if we only knew it.  What incomes have we not had from a flower, and how unfailing are the dividends of the seasons.  ~James Russell Lowell

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.  ~Lao Tzu

Full in the smile of the blue firmament.

The Sensitive Plant

Whether the sensitive Plant, or that
Which within its boughs like a Spirit sat,
Ere its outward form had known decay,
Now felt this change, I cannot say.

Whether that Lady's gentle mind,
No longer with the form combined
Which scattered love, as stars do light,
Found sadness, where it left delight,

I cannot guess; but in this life
Of error, ignorance, and strife,
Where nothing is, but all things seem,
And we the shadows of the dream,

It is a modest creed,and yet
Pleasant if one considers it,
To own that death itself must be,
Like all the rest, a mockery.

That garden sweet, that lady fair,
And all sweet shapes and odours there,
In truth have never passed away;
'Tis we, 'tis ours, are changed; not they.

For love, and beauty and delight,
There is no death nor change; their might
Exceeds our organs, which endure
No light, being themselves obscure.

Nature Wonder's

As the spring winds blow through my hair, 
They bend down and kiss my skin so fair, 
The water ripples beneath my toes, 
And of this place no one knows, 
This home inside my soul is none other than my heart, 
This delight no one can measure on any chart, 
The smell of rain fresh in the air, 
Tickles my senses without a care, 
All the plants are turning green and the trees are touching the sky, 
I fell like I am lifting up like I can fly, 
Nothing can bring me down from this heaven I have found, 
Because, from the world, it has kept me safe and sound...... 

Winter Love

I saw her wandering 
through the night, 
as sorrow bathed 
her shadowed face, 
neither creature nor flower 
it seemed to me, 
could make an ounce 
of happiness grace. 
As moon beams kissed 
her painted hair, 
and danced upon 
her naked feet, 
she of silver 
stole my heart 
and caught it's beat. 

Poetry On Beauty Of Nature

Just at dawn, 
When everyone's asleep, 
And you can hear the wind, 
That the trees cast at you, 

And when the seagulls are flying 
Above the sea, 
And whispering words of cheer, 
Peacefully flying about, 
Enjoying the nature, 

When the sun rises, 
And the flowers wake up 
From their sweet sleep, 
Dancing and singing, 
Enjoying their shower, 

And the cool springs, 
Gushing down the mountains, 
And the people are gazing peacefully, 
With a smile on their faces, 
Enjoying the beautiful scenery, 

And when the birds and doves 
Zoom up to the sky and land back down, 
Enjoying the cool air and calmness. 
And when the trees have grown fresh fruits, 
For us to nibble on, 

And when the sun sets, and the moon rises, 
Leaving beautiful colours in the sky, 
Is what nature is called.

Pantoum on Nature's Patience

Surviving all to seize the hour: 
A firm reward: a solitary flower.With pinch of time to propagate –Of seed and chance, it must await.A firm reward: a solitary flower, But motionless, the dainty tower.Of seed and chance, it must awaitAnd not by dreams or wishing fate.But motionless, the dainty tower –Completion lies in gusty power, And not by dreams or wishing fate.Unmindful patience; uncertain date: Completion lies in gusty powerTo cast its genes by seed in shower.Unmindful patience; uncertain dateTo dance in wind, from taut and straight.The bantam form remains sedate.With pinch of time to propagate: An airy blow it must devour, Surviving all to seize the hour.



Nature is mighty
Nature is strong
Nature is usually always right
Nature is rarely ever wrong
Nature is beauty
Nature is moody
Nature is smart
Nature always has the greater part
Nature is blue
Nature is green
Nature is every color possibly seen
Nature is true
Nature is beaming
Nature is dreaming
Nature is in every place
Nature is always with grace
Nature is true
Nature is you
Nature is me
Nature will forever be free

If spring came but once a century instead of once a year, or
       burst forth with the sound of an earthquake and not in
       silence, what wonder and expectation there would be
       in all the hearts to behold the miraculous change.
                                                              - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
