What is sacred?

Standard

What is sacred?

I ask nature permission.
I wish to honor it.
Maybe to interpret it.
Elegiac? Sonnet? Free verse?
The last of the three.

I thank God for thee.
I sit in the sun
Listen to the throb
Of insects singing their
Tune. I learn much in
The relative silence,
When and only when I can
Lose myself.

I see the growing willow.
I bless my time with it.
It will grow much beyond
The time I will be
Here. Dusk is beautiful
As Nature enters a
New phase. Closing down
After a day of sun,
Or rain. The weather
Is variable and can be
Fierce. Nothing is
Sacred.
