Lizards skitter around my feet

A bee sings its song and sips from a sunflower

Gravel crunches under my sandals

Flowers of all colors flutter through the air

Grass tickles my ankles

Twigs snap as I stroll

Mud begins to coat the rubber of my shoes

Even dead logs are swimming with life

Hammocks sway in the light breeze

Trees shakily reach for the sky

Sunlight is scattered in the trees

A caterpillar munches on leaves

Nature flows through me
