Rainy Engagement Session in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park

The Universe of You
I have never seen a flower blush when I took it’s hue
and held it there a prisoner captive to my view.

I have always heard the song that’s in the autumn breeze
playing taps in harmony with the forest leaves.

I love the smell of rain that brings the springtime into bud
and swells my love of nature into a teeming flood.

I celebrate the cycle of the daytime into night
and find an equal blessing in the shadow and the light.

I’ve always felt affinity for all created things
and surrender to the pleasure that their beauty brings.

And though I could spent a lifetime sailing drops of dew
I’ve never seen a universe as beautiful as you.

I’ve often sat myself by gentle mountain streams
and overflowed the dams that were holding back my dreams.

I’ve breathed the scented forest on the mountainside
and washed away my sorrows in an evening ocean tide.

I’ve laid down in a meadow and debated with the moon
and spent some quiet moments on the surface of Neptune.

I got married to a zodiac with one of Saturn’s rings
then spied a super nova and went on a cosmic fling.

I’ve run away to nebulae in galaxy brochures
and bathed in scenes of wonders on distant planet shores.

Every cosmos in creation could parade before my view
but I’ve never seen a universe as beautiful as you.

I’ve never seen a tree once withdraw it’s shade
and deny a creature the comfort of its aid.

I’ve never seen any anger in the sun at noon
when it burns relentlessly on the desert dune.

At sunrise I take an oath to live with all my might
and reinforce my gratitude each and every night.

I could spend some hours riding on a crystal flake
drifting wildly in a gale mindless of my fate.

Many times I’ve been through trials of wind and rain and snow
then sentenced to the splendors that the seasons show.

And though I’ve searched throughout creation, I must say this is true
I’ve never seen a universe as beautiful as you.
