Morning Forest

Morning Forest.

Sun in the Forest
The Sun coming through the trees

The eyes of the forest blink in the light.
Crows shout a warning.
Cool dawn mist passes through the trees
My footsteps sound louder,
further away from me, like a stranger walking.
They echo through the branches
through the space where the tree has fallen.
Roots reaching for the sky,
surrendering. Dry leaves chatter
of the changing season.
The sun rises and the mist settles back,
work done for the day.

Mist at the start
Mist at the start of the walk.

  1. Hi Jim. Les photos me plongent dans l’atmosphère de ces lieux! J’ai vu ton message sur la vallée de Chaudefour et suis très impatient de voir les photos. En vérifiant ou c’était je me suis rendu compte que j’avais dormis dans la vallée de Chaudefour pendant un trek dans le Massif du Sancy il y a 2 ou 3 ans!! C’était le highlight de notre trek, une vallée merveilleuse. Je ne crois pas avoir vu plus beau depuis.

    1. Merci Orel,

      Pardon mon mauvais Francais pour le reponse. J’ai reste ici en France pour 6 an maintenant. Et Je fait le randonee avec pleasure. Le region c’est plein de chose pour moi.

  2. Great photos, but I love best the description of your own footsteps echoing from afar. A wonderful depiction of the mind’s removal from the physical world to enjoy a more spiritual sensation of peace and wonder in the quiet morning light. Beautiful!
