Into the Forest of Light

These golden hours

When the sun no longer beats down heavy upon us

Instead dancing and teasing

In pockets of light

Displaying never before seen symmetry

Tiny dots on a fern

Alternating one each side

Then two, then more

Nature's very own domino 

Mesmerizing, these vantage points

Watching the world travel by

In liquid under your feet

These little feet make the journey into the forest

all on their own

A milestone

A memory itself in the making 

And in a clearing I see you

Seeing me

And I am delighted by that twinkle in your eye 

A mirror of the twinkle I see in his 

And all the more in the twinkle that surrounds him

In this magical place anything seems possible

So we are not surprised when it falls upon us 

That otherworldly light

We are bathed in it

Warmed by it

And succumb willingly to its power

A power that touches deep into everything it reaches

Even the very stones shimmer under our feet

We feel Light's power drawing closer in 

growing, growing

Until we are held captive

Caught in a web of our own choosing

Abandoning ourselves forever to the forest of light.

Beautiful photos and poetic words to match... that one of the sun through the trees is breathtaking - it looks like it's moving... and I'm guessing this was bubba's first time WALKING in the forest instead of being pushed/carried? SPECIAL!
