There’s magic to be found on this midsummer day; quiet reflections prevent it from skittering away.
Gilded rays of light affectionately dance; it seems almost as if the sun is looking for romance.
The rippling river responds, flowing joyously round the bend, sweeping along sparkling waters which seem eager to descend.
Dainty green grasses dot the edges of the stream, always the perfect place to curl up and dream.
Breath held deep, eyes shut good and tight, yet even behind closed lids, the sun still shines so bright.
The larks seem unbothered, flying straight overhead, collecting more fluff for their soft downy beds.
Cracking an eye at the snap of a stick, a pudgy little lizard scurries away so quick.
Lifting to lean, face cupped in hand, fighting the obligation to get up and stand.
Gaze suddenly caught by unexpected delight, endless rows of sunflowers stretching towards the light.
Energized by excitement as more wonders abound, amazed by the brilliance while looking around.
Every curiosity of nature, free for all to share, nothing else in this life can ever compare.
