The Poetry of the Earth

“The poetry of the earth is never dead.”
– John Keats

Biodiversity refers to the variety of life forms on earth.

Sometimes I like to consider the details that allow different life forms to function in different ways, to survive in different conditions, to interact with each other.  Fascinating, really.

Sometimes, though, I simply notice the beauty that exists all around me.  The contrast of color and texture among these evergreen trees captured my attention on a recent run.

“I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.”
– e. e. cummings
