A letter to Nature

Updated: Nov 30, 2023

Estafany Castro- November 28, 2023

Oh, how the winds

bring me down

when they should be

lifting me up.

Why does their whistling

bring me despair

rather than joy?

Oh, how the waves

swallow me whole

when they should be

reaching out to me.

Why does such a beautiful sight

bring me fear

rather than joy?

Oh, how the song of the birds

brings peace to the sky

when to me they sound like ravens

on a stormy night.

Why do such loving species

bring me dread

rather than peace?

Oh, please, Nature,

give me hope,

and love, and optimism

and anything to make me believe in your

pleasant sights

Just give me anything

other than a heart set

on fire!
