A Thing You Cannot See

I feel you on my skin

Your sweet caress against my cheek

You who are as harmless as you are destructive 

Wonderous and immortal you give me strength 


Reflective as the water which you ripple through

You show what I feel




Impossible to ignore


Without you swinging from the trees

Without you eroding away the mountains 

Without you keeping my attention elsewhere 

Without you I'd surely fade.

Our world
