The Twelve Senses

In The World of Nature

Silence stillness immensity

forest stretching endlessly

snow covered,

quietly breathing its tremendous,

wide, conifer expanse

And the sough of wind rising and falling

Most beings here , plant or animal,

are melded into this spacious and soul-purifying landscape

As is the human

But the human is also, at least in part, separate from the land.

And human nature can discern,

by way of the 12 senses,

aspects and nuances of the natural world through these 12 portals.
