Spring sunlight bounces off the fog and onto the sea as the spruce trees watch in awe. Light shows like this don’t happen every day. In the woods, light is filtering through the mist and trees, putting on a spectacle of a different kind.
Beams of light are descending onto the forest floor further down the path. Light shining through mist or trees in a forest can often appear otherworldly or heaven-sent. This is especially so if the rays of light are separated from one another. It’s no wonder that walking towards such a light is often used as a metaphor for attaining a peaceful presence in the next life.
Spring: An experience in immortality.
~ Henry David Thoreau
In the marsh, spring light is putting its mark on every surface. Nothing is so fine it can escape its touch.
Even colors are affected. Greens appear fresher and more full of life. Pinks seem more tender and delicate. Even the sky seems a kinder blue. Nature is lighter and human nature can’t help but respond with a feeling of hope that at least for today, all things are possible.
It’s amazing how spring light can so transform the world.
The world’s favorite season is the spring.
All things seem possible in May.
~ Edwin Way Teale
