Nature’s Veil

I love the imagery and personification of nature in this poem.

Nature’s veil is elusive
She is a sprite peeping out
for mere seconds
Till you see her and then
she is gone
A memory you cannot
be certain is real
And an essence too pure to dispute

Above earth our species strives
for relevance and a mark of time
Underneath she susurrates
More sublime and full of meaning
than our little lives may be

A child may see her clearer
in the full morning of youth
And hear her sparkling laughter
in the rushing of a stream
And knowing life is not
ever what it seems
gives their young clear clarity
to her world of dreams
