Love Sonnet: Poem to the World

The chaos and monotony of society,
the ruthless competition and high expectation.
Bland fabrications obstruct the world’s variety
and underrate nature’s exceptional creation.

A life lived amidst this oblivion and clamor
is a life lived without promise, without fulfillment.
The earth’s underlying spirit and unseen glamor
offer unquestionable pleasure and enrichment.

The certain peak and fall of the glistening ocean,
and inevitable rise and set of the golden sun,
are what I admire most in states of commotion—
generous sights more reliable than anyone.

A passion for nature won’t fail to reciprocate
when society offers an unpromising fate.
