1 POEM By Fatima Abdulrahman Subuola

The Beauty Of Nature

I sit with clouded thoughts in my head,

I reminisce the beauty of nature

in an atmosphere armored in quietude.

My trembling legs cannot deny 

these wondrous views of nature 

as I climb slowly like a monkey 

toward a mountain top.

Loads of worries in my head like a hawker

are dissolved by this lulling sensation.

The cool breeze comes with such calmness, 

that my lost inner peace is found.

Nature is beautiful, 

a harbinger of priceless peace

to the mind, to the heart.

My eyes, lost in the sky, 

watch the cloud perform

its theatrics and elocution.

I watch till the sun emits slowly like a snail

from the horizon

its radiance of gold & orange.

I can’t lower my gaze while the sun bakes.

Nature deserves my loyalty.
