The forest is filled with magic and secrets.
What do I feel?
I am thrilled yet excited to be in the forest.I can feel the nature embracing me, in a big warm welcome.Trees that are reaching the skies, dwarfing over me. A silent spell was cast.
What do I see?
I open my eyes and see green all around me, mostly trees and algae rotting the bushes.The grass beneath my feet are breathing out life.Gasping for knowledge. Only the grass knows who have set a journey in the same spot I am standing on.
What do I hear?
I hear the birds chirping, the frogs croaking, and other mysterious nature sounds. They have an orchestra here,a myriad of tunes & melodies in harmony. Did you know that the earth has music for those who listen?
What do I smell?
I smell the earth, the scent of the fresh blue sky,its rays piercing through the pines, the leaves have an intoxicating scent that goes in and out of my nose.
What do I taste?
I taste the flavor of the beauty of nature.The rain nurturing the leaves. The dew that kissed the shrubs. Its pungent.Its all raw.
All my senses are alive. It got lost in this paradise. It got revived and my soul finds healing.I want to leave all my fears behind.Its only in the still silence of nature that one will find true bliss.
This is my Day- 4 humble take on the challenge posed to me by Stella of the Blog SimpleDimple in response to her 7-Days Nature photo challenge. Stella has always been bubbly &, spreading warm love in the great community here in WP. If you have time, please do pass by her page & get to know her through her soulful posts.
Stella, Thank you once again for mentioning me in your post and giving this challenge.
*The rule of this challenge is quite simple: Post a nature photo and nominate someone else per day for 7 days.
For today, I wanted to pass on this Nature photo challenge to one of my inspiring friend, Liz of Little house in Missouri. She is one of the few Expat Mamas out here that I can totally relate to and have given enough encouragement in my posts. She has been posting powerful content that really comes from deep insight on raising her 3 multi-racial kids.She is very passionate about well-being, women’s issues, social justice,homeless/food bank & the arts. She also enjoys nature & embracing the changes of being an Expat family.She have been a great inspiration on her take on parenting as well. Even without this challenge, I would always look up to her page and would recommend for you to give time to check her awesome but relatable Blog.
To Liz, I know time is precious in our world, but if you would take on this challenge, I would appreciate it so much.If not, I still want you to know how much I appreciate you.
Thank you and I hope you have fun & enjoy the next 7-days writing about nature.
