Nature is what we dont See

nature is what we dont see
for instance the essence
that pushes words out for
this poem fated for posterity

the birds that without fail
chirp at first light, morn breeze
the unseen clock working at the dot

nature is what we dont see
the nocturnal bloom, that folds
itself in the day,
throws its fragrance
in the dead of night
as lovers hide in each others' bossoms
below the soft glare of the moon
centimetre by centimetre
it has inched forward to exhibit
its full blown majesty to the world

Nature is what we dont see
the shadow play master tilting
the earth, the petals for its bloom dance
the successive cells here there
guided towards optimal functions
and that ogiasmic tremour
that shuttles the world
round and round

nature is what you should not see
the formulas, secrets kept behind
everything that could get even
einstein mad in unveiling,
explaining them

nature is what we all should not see
nor equipped to see though
it rambles through our every cell
like the worst of storm

The Former Badjist (7/7/2008 6:21:00 PM) Er, sorry to interrupt, it's good, but please may I warn you that to a native English speaker (as I am) certain words have an immediate 'switch-off' effect. 'Orgasmic' is one. Others that come to mind are 'vibrant' and 'ultimate'. Anyway, please carry on.
Palas Kumar Ray (6/11/2008 1:41:00 AM) The Poem reflects the inner vision of the poet, It shows me the way how to look at the Nature! Quite interesting. Precious work.
Karen Van Hoesen (9/4/2006 3:58:00 PM) ... a delicious poem which Miss Dickinson would have appreciated... i enjoyed it very much... at the risk of being slightly retentive, what appear to me to be mis-spellings of words like 'bosom' and 'orgasmic' are the only negatives... nice work
