Food.  Air.   Water.  Touch.
Shelter, if it is just a lean-to.
Clothing, if it is just a skin.
Light and dark,  music and art.
                You.

Moon to hypnotize and direct
Tides.  Sun and fire to warm
And excite, and rain to insure
Drought doesn't kill.
                            You.

The birds, the bees, and the stork.
Babies blooming in parks, malls,
Nurseries.  Animal friends.  Work
Of real use to do.
                                You.

Hills, valleys, lakes, seas, shores rock
And sand, feminine curves of dunes.
Canyons, arroyos, dust-to-dust-
Inspiring ruins.  Spot to rest a spell.
            Guess who.

Needs may be few, but hear this.
Do not think about asking me
To ever think about
Going without
                                          You.

The geography doesn't matter that much if the relationship
is right, but the environment does and you, Pea, know what it is to avoid and transcend and get to the core values.
Love the style and expression here.
