A dark forest.
The canopy is so thick, rain barely penetrates.
The scents of trees and foliage surround
And caress the senses.
When rain does penetrate,
It creates tiny cascades from the heavens
Which are cool
And surpass even the softest of water.
Small beams of light can be seen
Scattered among the undergrowth
Sent from the sun, so far above.
Beautiful flora nestles among the arbor
And along the banks of a rippling stream.
It’s glistening water is almost celestial in comparison.
If you follow the stream into the distance,
The forest parts to reveal a moonlit beach.
The silver waves collide majestically
Upon the picturesque scene
Of the diamond pebbles amid the sand.
The mist from the sea falls
Upon the porcelain of the face,
Enforcing the senses
And convincing the mind to yearn to stay
Inexorable, wanting to stay as the soul is
