She lost herself in the trees

For this week, Anne-Christine leads us with the challenge of picking a poem or quote and using 1-4 pictures to illustrate this. (Ooops Sorry for having an extra photo)

I stumbled upon a brief poem by Christy Ann Martine on Google, and I was intrigued by its mystery. Here goes …

She lost herself in the trees among the ever-changing leaves.

She wept beneath the wild sky as stars told stories of ancient times.

The flowers grew towards her light,

the river called her name at night.

She could not live an ordinary life with the mysteries of the universe hidden in her eyes.

    I love the poem you selected, Teresa. the images you selected to go with it, brought it to life. The last photo has such a sense of tranquility. “mysteries of the universe” – yes.
