“Nature will bear the closest inspection. She invites us to lay our eye level +with her smallest leaf, and take an insect view of its plain.” Henry David Thoreau
nature – a creative and controlling force in the universe (Merriam-Webster)
Nature can be beautiful and peaceful, then without warning she can create a mile wide path of destruction in a few minutes and take lives along with it. After the storm clears Mother Nature can leave one speechless with her painting skills by painting a beautiful rainbow in the sky.
She gave the spider the ability to build a web of precision and beauty, then it is used to trap an unsuspecting victim, at which time the spider scampers from its hiding place to kill its prey. She painted insects colors that would blend in with its surroundings and male birds bright colors while she painted the females colors that would make it hard for enemies to see them.
Mother Nature use to keep things balanced in her world then along came man who thinks he is smarter than her. He creates pesticides, herbicides, genetically modified seeds and levees along the rivers. Then there is pollution and littering created by man. Roadsides are rife with litter and I don’t know how many sandbars i clean up along the river. Man is one of Mother Nature’s biggest enemies.
“Nature is full of genius, full of the divinity; so that not a snowflake escapes its fashioning hand.” Henry David Thoreau
Every time my eyes feast upon the sight of fall foliage I think how lucky I am to be able to enjoy the works of rt created by Mother Nature. I often wonder how long before litter dots the area that I am standing in. We have all ready made a large area of the Gulf of Mexico uninhabitable for sea life. When will the folks responsible for the litter and pollution start appreciating Mother Nature? Are we going to ever learn how important she is to our own existence?
I want to thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I ask all of you to slow down and really observe what Mother Nature has given us. Think before you throw that litter out of the window. Learn to respect her and appreciate her and help her keep nature balanced.
