Trifecta Weekend Challenge: My forest muse

Trifecta asked us to be inspired by this image:


And what an incredible image to be inspired by. Thanks Trifecta. As instructed, I let it fill me up and let the light inspire me. Here are my 33 words:

**************************************


I soar. The days, months, years fall away. I watch the light and dark play their games in the forest, through the trees, into the leaves. I am silent but I am content.

**************************************

Hey Trifectans, if you want to make me happy and content  IRL, please check this out and tell my favorite charity how awesome they are for my birthday coming up or donate. You could win prizes! Mostly, you'd just get my unwavering love and devotion.  That would be incredible.

I felt at peace reading this. Contentment is what we strive for in this life.

Leftwoods said...

Yes, this is how I feel watching the change of the seasons. Content. Excellent take on the prompt.

I agree this was wonderfully rendered, and I simply love the 'I soar' In my mind's eye I saw the changing of the seasons from the sky.

serene.

Very nice. This made me feel like staring out into the ocean, and losing my sense of time.

Ivy said...

You really conveyed the serenity of the photo and the beauty of the changing seasons. Excellent job!

I like this very much. And I wonder who is "I"?

Draug said...

Cool. I like the open possibility of the narrator's identity.

Yes, who is the narrator? We can each interpret this differently. For me, it is a loved one who has passed over, and is looking down on the world, wanting to know that everyone they have left behind is OK. The fact that the seasons tick over as normal is the great comfort.

I love how peaceful this reads. The line with light and dark is my favorite. Thank you for linking up. Please remember to come back and vote!

A sweet and moving take on the prompt

A beautiful, serene piece. Not what I was expecting, to be honest, but so lovely. Great job.

You've captured my feelings, exactly.

Thanks everybody. I was busy running 5k's and stuff that this is the first chance I've had to respond. I'm not really sure I know who the narrator is yet, to be honest. In my head, he's old like that strange turtle thing in Never ending story, except less mean and curmudgeonly, if that makes any sense.
