Forest - Moorland - Coastline

Living in the English west country, I have access to unspoilt natural areas, north and south coastlines, national parks Exmoor and Dartmoor where nature is held in a time capsule, left to its own development in natural change.

All nature has a feeling: woods, fields, brooks
Are life eternal: and in silence they
Speak happiness beyond the reach of books;
There's nothing mortal in them; their decay
Is the green life of change; to pass away
And come again in blooms revivified.
Its birth was heaven, eternal it its stay,
And with the sun and moon shall still abide
Beneath their day and night and heaven wide.

~ John Clare  1793-1864

John Clare's poem is important for its recognition that nothing dies; decay is part of the renewal process - the cycle of life.    Such writing is congruent with the Romantic movement, glorifying nature, although William Blake, writing in same era and similarly aware of the beauty and forces of nature, warned of making nature worship a new 'god'. An interesting thought with today's interest in the environment being hijacked into false climate warnings for carbon taxation.

Spirituality in nature linked to cosmic forces when experiencing weather, was expressed by journalist Alex Jones's mother who said "There will never be a robot which recognises the beauty of the soul of god, when they were watching a storm and a rainbow". This is nature as part of cosmic forces and life force as God everywhere and within everyone.
