She shows me the sky
Of brilliant blue
Purposely hiding the clouds
As if she knew
She infuses me with her energy
So I can keep going
Feeling downhearted
And really not knowing

One step at a time
Fearing where to tread
She pointed me to a river
So I could follow the thread
The trees shed their leaves
Providing a place to sleep
Branches and twigs
For a fire to keep

A sense of calmness
Encompasses my being
A feeling of serenity
Is beautifully freeing
My faith restored
And strength recaptured
Mother Nature provided
And I am enraptured

    The blissful peace that flows through us in nature is true serenity. Your poem accurately describes the way I feel when I’m having a rough day and take a walk in nature. It awakens me and fills me with hope and restores my peace of mind.
