Arriving you are brought to the base
Arriving at the lusciously dense forest at daybreak, you gaze at thefresh dew delicately dangling on the foliage. You stroll through the windingdirt trails towards the steady flowing water while the birds proudly recitetheir early morning songs. Reaching the free flowing stream you bend down andsee your clear reflection in front of the orange-yellow sky. Goosebumps risealong your arms as the streams icy depths run through your fingers.
Thecleansing water quickly refreshes your face, quickly washing away your anxietiesand frustrations of a usual hectic life.Beyond the stream is a meadow filled with a variety of flowers. Taking astroll through the meadow is like walking through a rainbow. The shades of thevelvety ornamented flower petals vary from scarlet, to baby blue. Despite thesimilarities in color, nothing else seems to be the same- they all tower 2 or 3feet above the dark, rich soil. They sway playfully in unison with the warmcaressing breeze, carefully merging the two scents into one fresh, cleanfragrance.You pry yourself away from the immense meadow, still filled with manyunexplored treasures and turn back into the foliage covered depths of the forest.
The sun is comfortably placed in front of the cotton candy clouds, in the midstof the soft blue sky. The occasional bird soars through in a last minuet attemptto catch a worm so it may feed the yearning mouths of it’s young. The rough dirttrail ends and you are brought to the base of a rock. Your feet reach for theunfamiliar footholds of the high rocky promontory, anxiously scrambling up thestreaky pinkish rock ready to explore any new treasures that lie beyond you.
Once on top, you gaze down and see it all- the crystal clear stream brilliantlyreflecting the sky, the vast landscape consisting of the towering trees wherethe birds serenade each other and the squirrels play cat and mouse. Beyond theclearing in the far end of the forest lays the meadow where the tall flowerssway and dance. Surveying all this, all troubles will melt away, leavingyourself with nothing else but nature- where your infinite memories will neverdie.
