Magic hidden below petals and mulch
A world I could not see
Yet I knew it was there
Stepping lightly through the trees
The ground springs beneath our feet
We must not disturb
Hidden from our eyes
Do you see it now?
Use your senses
Put your ear to the ground
Listen with an open heart
Imagination is there to delight
Savor with your eyes
Discoveries are yet to come
Return with a smile on your face
I would dream of fairies and gnomes hiding just out of view. I am sure they were there peeking out at us. I would always return with a smile on my face and peace in my heart because it was an adventure this girl at a young age could do by herself. A place of discovery. I must admit a bit selfishly, my sister couldn't go there because of the poison oak. I seemed to be immune to it, but if it was just in the air she would break out in a rash. So it was my own secret adventure.
Do you sometimes imagine magic hiding nearby in nature? The magic is there to discover and delight if only we "notice what we notice".
Happy Fourth of July weekend, dear friends!
Have a weekend of discoveries and delights.
