Leaves hide and die in brilliant light as moss grows up to cover wounds. A blanket of blue pours liquid white crystals over purple shadows. I take a step and the crackle of sunbeams glistens through flecks of foliage. I step and sound glows with soft, moist music that fills the hollows of tree trunks with vibrating silence. I hear a dog brushing through branches, alive with the energy of outdoors.
