Springtime in the Mountains

Just being among the rough structures,
the fallen trees,
the growing saplings,
the singing winds,
the scent of the animals,
the blueberries,
the dogwood trees,
the quietness,
the bulk of water in the river,
the trout in the fresh water,
the hanging limbs full of new sprouts,
the silence of the mother deer,
the sound of the bee hive,
the density of life,
the penetrating sunrays,
the sounds on the lake,
the random patterns,
the history of rebirthing,
the potential of the pinecones,
the absorbing power of the trees,
the vestibule at the forest's opening,
breathing in the life-giving oxygen,
is enough to make my day.
