Synchronized moss

Moss dives into air

and swims through stone,

all above the water’s flow

    There’s just something about moss, I’ve been drawn to it since I was a child. I think I see it as ancient and forever. Not sure, there’s just a feeling.

    • Thank you for your lovely comment! I agree. There is something strangely eternal to these mats of moss, as if all of creation was born wrapped in their soothing organic shrouds. Hope you are having a wonderful day, my friend ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. If only I could see that live…that is so freakin gorgeous! wow.

    • Thank you! Nature never fails to disappoint, senses awash in moss and white riffle foam. It was a truly sublime experience. Have you any natural areas where you live that inspire you to new heights? There is always awe and wonder wherever you reside ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I live in Texas in the city. There are natural areas but it is a trip that falls out of the routine of work and work and Dr.’s appts. But I haven’t been able to visit to find the inspiration you talk of for ….too long. I have plans though. But you did give me the idea to ask my brother (photographer) if I can display his pictures of nature with my writing. One of the things I do to keep close to nature is that I keep a hummingbird feeder and I watch the birds. And birds seem to watch me for some reason. At work, a raven the size of my torso has come and sat on the window ledge. I look for the miracles of nature wherever I can grab them. I love the city but I miss the stars. And nothing here is as green as what you posted and I have never seen a mountain or a waterfall with my own eyes. Hopefully by brother will let me post something. Thank you for bringing nature to my computer.

  5. Hi there. I know Liebster Award ย is not a palpable award but I nominated you. There are no judges, no special rules. No website with an official team to congratulate you and hold your hand while making pictures. It’s mostly what you want it to be. If you receive the award, you can ย accept it and pass it along or you can ignore it. It’s that easy and totaly up to you.

    I don’t know your ratings who cares about ratings anyway, ย so, ย I hope nobody gets offended since thisย is just a recognition from one blogger to another for how awesome they are. Kind of like a really big virtual hug!

    • Thank you, Andreas, and congrats on your award nomination as well! Your kind words are much appreciated, my friend! Keep up the inspired work on your blog ๐Ÿ™‚
      Cheers,
      Tyler

    I love moss – I used to have a stone paved driveway with moss that grew between the stones. My ex-husband always wanted to spray it – eradicate it – i had to put my foot down – not to kill my moss!

    Looks like an adventurous place to be. Makes you feel so alive and vibrant.
