A walk in the woods

Earth’s crammed with heaven,

And every common bush afire with God,

But only he who sees takes off his shoes,

The rest sit round and pluck blackberries

-Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How can something as simple as a walk in the woods bring such pleasure and delight? It’s when we walk with purpose, taking in our surroundings and observing nature at its best that our soul rejoices in such beauty and creation.

The fall season is undoubtedly the most beautiful as many would agree. Golden leaves scattered everywhere and some still afloat in the air, making their way slowly but surely to the ground. Trees, bare as they may be, display such poise and stature, ready to be clothed with the next season’s gifts of snow and ice. Such wonder, my soul sings. Such beauty in simplicity that I leave the woods feeling rejuvenated, soothed and revived.
