Nature is stunning. So much so that it has a special way of staying with you. Long after our outdoor adventures are over we can easily find ourselves day dreaming of cherished moments in wild, open spaces. Inspired by an evening hike, the words above were created in a day dream haze of a night sky blanketed with stars and a yellow puff moon.
Writing this poem and sharing it with you is one of the ways I celebrate nature. A way to show my love and appreciation for all I receive. How do you celebrate nature? Does it involve family traditions or do you have a solo form of celebration? Instead of words does your love and appreciation come to life in images you’ve taken or created? Do you practice Leave no Trace principles and spend time caring for our natural spaces?
However we celebrate nature we must first seek it out. Plan your next adventure now.
