Full Unfull

In the dark, the new moon 
 Unfull yet full at the same time
 Hidden from our gaze
But no less beautiful
This is the time the moon feels most like herself
When the sun does not reflect itself upon her
When the illuminating light does not press down upon her
This is when she truly feels free to shine with her own light
Shine bright new moon

In The Woods


I love the woods. The dark, rich earth beneath the fallen leaves. The small creatures that lurk beneath the rocks. The way the light sparkles through the trees. There's nothing like that filtered light in the woods. As I walk I try to find the tiny life hidden on the forest floor. I love unearthing and discovering the unseen. Millipedes and salamanders. Mushrooms and fungus. Moss and lichen. Solace and comfort.
