Stroll in the Woods

Spread the love

forest-1598756_1280

I believe solitude is something which we embrace and choose; for greater things occur where all is peaceful except for the quiet beating of the heart. I inhale as soft blew the twilight breeze. Lost in the depths of foliage and trees I tread further and deeper into my thoughts ― it would add to the pleasure of life if we formed the habit of seeing what is beautiful and divine in ordinary things; sunshine flooding the river valley or autumn clad in crimson red and gold. Don’t believe solely on what the eyes tell you, rather seek to discover beyond its limitations. Search within the power of your intellect; find out what you already know and in return earn the wings to fly. I smile as white blossoms unfurl and fall silently into the lake ― knowing I held opportunity in the tender inwards of my hand.

Rain continues to fall
as clouds kiss earth with vigor
a sight to behold

    There is, as you write, an entire world beyond our senses that we can only glimpse in the behaviors of those that can see infrared and ultraviolet. Our minds filter our eyes.

    Lovely haibun and haiku Sanaa. Puts me in mind of a haibun I wrote several months ago about the practice of boketto. It is nice to know others enjoy the silence of the forest as much as I.

    There is so much wisdom in this, as there is wisdom in nature.
    “it would add to the pleasure of life if we formed the habit of seeing what is beautiful and divine in ordinary things”….a most wonderful and invaluable message.
    I really like this, Sanaa.

    The weakness of many. Somehow one misses those that matter and instead bother with the nitty gritties of insignificance!

    I could live in these words, feeling them real, dancing them from dusk till dawn and again! ❤️
