That is what they are called

By those who seek after

The immaculate swath of green.


But how can they be so blind?


In all their manifold forms

In their innumerable colors


Are they not a gift?


Are they not, in every instance,

a wonder, waiting for us to notice?


Nature gives them to us

Offering us a chance to see them

Things to tell us that yes,

there is beauty not of our making

in the Universe


Open your eyes

Open your heart

And enjoy the beauty around you

The beauty Nature gives us for free

If we just have the sense to see it.
