Above ground, from back to fore, sky, cloud, ephemeral & changing wisps,
sylvan serrations, swaying limbs, steady trunks, grainy bark, shimmering leaves,
in differing hues & shadows - dark green to lighter, yellows, beginnings of browns,
all blended together as Nature's smoothie.
Changing light trending to dimmer & darker, with interspersed brightening moments,
A statement of Peace, hiding in plain sight.
Until the moment of awareness arrives - fleeting, yet memorable.
And, likely to happen again & again, with variations on the theme...
