"I've written too much nature poetry lately, here's some thoughts."

The weather Manifesto

I have recently been doing a lot of writing about storms. if you want to check out some of my other poetry, go to My latest poem is called Rainy sundays. i also had a category on a poetry contest category called "rainy days" in which i also wrote a poem about rain. and i recently wrote a poem called "Heat wave" about the heat, and wrote some winter poetry in retrospect. so i'm a bit burnt out on the nature poetry.
In a couple of weeks, I'm going with my family to Canada to be among nature. i'm hoping this will give me a fresh perspective, that i will be able to do some en plein air
paintings and photography, write some nature poetry, etc. I live right next to chicago, and you don't see much nature here. If you live in a rural area you may find it boring but there are problems with living near a big city. but i won't go into it. I don't think I'd really want to ever move, but it would be great to travel more, whether it was in this country we live in or even beyond. when i got my canadian passport it took a long time to get, and that is just for a passport to go to Canada. there is beauty everywhere in the world, and I don't have to go all over the world to find it. Sometimes people move across the world to find themselves and what they find is relationships with other human beings, and it seems that the world is full of friendly and mean people wherever you go. you'd be suprised if you are just curteous to your neighbor how far that can take you. History is full of people ruining other people's lives over petty differences. I'm not a Ba'hai, but here they have a bumper sticker...coexist. And it has all kinds of different religious symbols in it. I think the world would be a better place if we could all coexist, but there are a lot of unanswered mysteries on this planet. But God has all the answers, and a person I know, who is perhaps not religious, said, who can make blades of grass, year after year, but a god?Even this simple concept had me suprised. he didn't have to preach a qoutation from the Bible to get attention, he just said, " What scientist can cover the earth with grass?" So fear not crazy weather. trust a God who provides. If it is winter be thankful if God provides you with a jacket. If it rains, be grateful for an umbrella. but above all, be grateful. He can't bless you with more until you are grateful now!
