A Friend In Nature

I've found a friend in nature
although nature could turn on me
if i'm out and about in a storm
and its lightning strikes me
if a tidal wave sweeps me far out to sea
or a poisonous snake takes a bite of me
if a tornado twirls me high into the sky
yes, the irony is that nature which
i find so enchanting
could one day cause my demise

This isn't good, sorry! : P
As Nature reclaims our bodies, heaven reclaims its heart, you are such a wonderful writer, love Duncan
Miss a philosophical poem but please do put some humour in it and some hope and life, some happiness and may you lead a long and colourful life.
A provocative write indeed - for all its beauty, nature deserves our respect...great poem Faith! Kind regards, Justine.
