This poem was written and storyboarded by Autumn, a resident at Prairieview. The poem’s intent was to capture the essence of being in nature, in Autumn’s own meaningful way. With the help of Film Production Intern Cassandra Bauer and Autumn’s instructor Scott Swanson, In A New Voice launched its very first round of motion poems.
Poem Manuscript:
“Nature is Me” by Autumn
“Nature is me.
Beautiful and lovely
I am the flora and the fauna
I reside in the countryside and the city.
The landscape is my canvas.
And the natives are my paintbrushes.
I am universal.
The cheerful sunshine is my companion
The organic soil is my harmony
I am nature”
