in ur shoe

The key is love,

The gate is the outdoors,

Behind the gate is nature.

Don't say it's just yours,

It's everyone's.

The trees have

Green like the glow in emerald.

Brown like the shimmer in the axinite.

The sun I hear?

Is this that lights up our world?

I cant believe it's shine, oh so bright.

Nature is right outside of you,

have you seen it right?

Nature is right outside of you,

in the day and in the night.

It's up,

It's down,

It's all around.

It's the sky,

It can also be what we're standing on,

Even under the ground.

Even in the blinding city of light,

There's nature.


Have you seen it yet?

The word "nature" seems pretty ambiguous to me, I mean, it could be referring to the world's ecosystem or to human nature or to the way things are, and I think you did a good job expressing that ambiguity.

I also thought that the point that in a way, nature is everywhere, even in the heart of the city was one worth thinking about.

Amazing poem! I love

Amazing poem! I love everything to do with the out doors, and I think that people spend to much time on their screens rather than out enjoying it. I think what you have said brings out the importaints of nature.
