Natures Lesson

some lessons still leave more questions than answers

The trail of the deer is easy to track
small hooves with deep impressions left
large endentations where they bed.
Racoons are discernable for certain
distinguished by it"s splayed five toes
and penchant for cleanliness.
Big mountain lions, pumas other cats
much more difficult, fewer tracks
staying to rocks, trees and the like.
Spoor of all are easier to be known
thier hair left on bushes and such
all are worth the effort to see.

You watch, look and follow time spent worthwhile
becoming one with natures own
learning from how they live and die.
Know the rocks, trees, lesser living creatures
how all inneract each to all
and the difference between us.
But even with all of this once well learned
such a part of your whole being
it will gain you very little.
For it is we humans who live outside
beyond our natural nature
and forge conflict where none need be.
