Green / Adventure {Nurture Photography}

 

"Lost in the forest, I broke off a dark twig
and lifted its whisper to my thirsty lips:
maybe it was the voice of the rain crying,
a cracked bell, or a torn Heart.
 
 
Something from far off it seemed
deep and secret to me, hidden by the earth,
a shout muffled by huge autumns,
by the moist half-open darkness of the leaves.
 
 
Wakening from the dreaming forest there, the hazel-sprig
sang under my tongue, its drifting fragrance
climbed up through my conscious mind
 
 
 
 
as if suddenly the roots I had left behind
cried out to me, the land I had lost with my childhood---
and I stopped, wounded by the wandering scent."       
 
Pablo Neruda: Lost in the Forest ...

 Adventure awaits us -
often when least expected!

  8. Such beautiful images, Nina.. So peaceful, and intriguing, the bench in the shade of the trees, and the glossy calm water. I really love that abstract image - it's fantastically green, and with such movement & interest!
    I hope you are finding plenty of exploring and adventure during these summer days. They are going by quickly!
