READ THE BOOK OF NATURE
Then I began to think about how all creation speaks to us about the glory of God.
The Book of Nature
The book of nature
Opens wide each fresh new page
Begging to be read
I thought to myself, We can actually read the book of nature.
But when I mentioned it to my husband, he made a good point. What about a person who is blind? They aren’t able to see with their eyes the beauty of creation. So I began to think about it more.
If a person cannot see they must “read” the world with their other senses.
There is so much beauty in our world. In fact, all of us can use our senses to experience nature in different ways.
Hearing the sound of the bird songs,
touching a blade of grass or the fur of an animal
or the bark of a tree, feeling the wind against our skin –
all of these are ways to read the book of nature.
Those of us who see can share what we observe using descriptive words.
We can write poems, stories and articles about nature.
Autumn time is here
Brown leaves clustered on the ground
Mighty trees stand tall
And here’s a photo/haiku from last year.
