naturans : naturata

it is
what it must be
and is itself
enough

it does
what it must do
because
it is
what it is

would you have it be
something else

what would it become
then

would it do a thing
some
any thing
that it didn’t need
to do
because of what
it had become

it would do
what it must do

all
that it must do

because
it is
and that
must be
enough

Poem #590 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.
