Standing below the trees, in the woods behind my resort, I breathed in the fresh air. Away from my hectic life full of commitments and deadlines, I felt the surrounding silence soothe my soul. The cool breeze stirred the leaves, as though coaxing them of old secrets.
Bracket branches, reach for the sky;
Awaken viridians, rushling so high.
I wonder what they say;
In elation, they sway.
In my mind, I imagined them as jade torches. Protecting us, enduring the ever-changing climate and nature’s wrath- storms and floods. Yet, guiding us towards a higher level of existence- harmony and spirituality.
