When I Return…

Earth, Sea, Nature, Beautiful, Sunrise, Water, Poetry, Life

When I am done here, I will go
and I will return as everything

The Earth and it’s beautiful, rugged terrain;
majestic mountains, and the quiet hills
valleys, plateaus, forests and the vast desert

I shall be the wind that you feel, but can’t touch
I shall be the gentle and the torrential rain

I will be the air, the billowing clouds that float by
the waters of all corners of the earth
even the puddle that you step in

I will be the eagle that soars the skies
and the dove that coos and the watching owl

I shall be the Whale and the dolphin
the plankton, the seaweed
and the beautiful pearl in the oyster’s shell

I will be the dewdrops gathered on the verdant green
and the pretty, vivid flower blooms

The swift cheetah and the gentle lamb
A kitten and a dog and the rabbit running from the Fox
and yes, I shall be the fox

The pretty blushing maid in her red shoes,
glossy lips and corn rows
casting flirty looks under thick lashes

The handsome dark stranger with mysterious eyes
and the cleft in his chin

The vivacious lady with the laughing eyes
with a loud throaty chuckle
and her big black purse

The friendly, robust neighbour down the corner
who always offers cakes and pies

The mother with a baby suckling at the breast
the suckling child at the mother’s breast
each gurgling in joy at the other

The pebble stones and the grain of sand under your feet
The music that rouses you to dance and stirs your soul

You will see me in the stars, in the skies and in the face of everything,
‘Cos when I am done here, I will go and
I shall return as everything.
