In the forest we grow ever so quietly
Disturbing no one as the season changes from harsh to light
Blooming slowly, but when we’re gone it seems like we weren’t there at all
Beauty escapes too quickly
Acknowledge and appreciate it while it lasts.
As tall as the sky
I feel on top of the world standing beside my brothers and sisters
Wind grasps my branches and wiggles the needles
Good morning sunshine, I haven’t seen your sunrise since yesterday.
Wait until the frost melts or the snow kills us all
Our fate rests in the hands of temperature
But for now we enjoy the sunlight
Shining light into a deafening darkness
Our secrets and insecurities in the spotlight
All eyes are on us
Trees, deers, and bushes in the background
Their importance is real, but the focus is on us.
Gaze for more than usual
You’ll notice things you’ve never seen before in the same path you’ve walked all your life.
Frost turns into quartz
Puddles become portals into another reality
Just stop and stare at nature
Trust me, nature won’t mind
The trees won’t find it rude.
Cold waters and unforgivable winters
Beautiful from a distance
Do not disturb.
I’m sitting in a car with the windows down and camera pointed towards the fog
Not everything has to be loud and exciting
I don’t have to run beside the water and fly a drone for a more dramatic effect
I can, but I don’t
Little moments can mean more then the bigger ones.
