While the bluebells boast below.
As if a competition, a race to allure the viewer…
I the observer, I reap the benefits.
Standing in awe, with nothing to match,
I am swiftly humbled.
Today, I had the opportunity to visit Sagawau Environmental Learning Center, formerly known as Camp Sagawau. What a dramatic scenery taking place as we speak in the forest preserves right now. At this spot, a birdhouse hangs from a branch on a wire, in the midst of a splendid spring display. It stopped me in my tracks.
Is this scene the definition of spring? I do think so.
Demonstrating climax throughout the year, it is but two brief seasons: spring and autumn. I will not take for granted the mysteries displayed, but will soak in all that surrounds me and trap that memory for all of my existence.
