In Search of Eden

We ventured from the comfortable

Drove down unfamiliar, dusty, gravel roads

Flanked by wavy trees and scrubby bushes scattered

We hiked deep into the forest

Along winding, dirt paths strewn randomly with protruding roots and jutting rocks

The unruly grass dotted with tiny, divine flowers, the laughter of God

The whole earth dappled golden underneath the canopy of softly swaying leaves

We ventured from the comfortable

To hear the roar

The first sign that what we were after was up ahead

To see water rushing and falling

To watch the swirling, churning, surging

And feel the mist on our faces and bare limbs

To stop striving and stand in awe of something bigger than ourselves

To marvel at the spectacle and power

Hidden away like treasure

But there for those who would seek it out

To be present and breathe and heal

In the open air and tangle

Of nature’s wonderland
