Nature is a language I began to read

Self-negating?
The barren skies,
they are waiting.

Self-depressing?
The endless seas,
they are supressing.

Self-obliterating?
The incessant sparrows in the eaves,
they are mating.

Self-nihilising?
The resilient trees are examples,
of self-actualising,

wisely,
quietly,
respectfully,
grounded,
flung by the stopless wind,
bearing
and dropping
all manner of fabulous fruit.
