What is nature
without the green trees
or the yellow dandelions?
What is nature
without the birds chirping
or leaves rustling?
What is nature
without the wind blowing
or the sun beating?

Where is nature
with the tall buildings
and paved streets?
Where is nature
with the smog filled air
and the cloudy sky?
Where is nature
with people cruising by
and not glancing around?

How can nature be so forgotten?
In the technical age of the modern world.
In the busy schedules of meetings indoors.
In the lack of desire to play outside.

Why can’t we remember nature?
Before it all dies
