To beat the blues
to come back from the depths of darkness
to make the dark clouds pass…
I go outdoors to spend time in nature
…to admire the ever-chancing setting around me,
the vast landscapes,
the tiniest details; ants running around, birds chasing sunrays,
the glittering sea that echoes the stories from all the shores the waves have already seen.
…to witness how the light showers hope on the ground
helping the flowers to find their way through the snow.
How rain falls on the sunshine
revealing the delicate designs of the leaves.
…to swim in the sparkling waves.
To greet the morning glow.
Simple. Still half asleep,
tenderly dreamy and tranquil.
…to hug a tree. And then the air.
To walk myself deep into my best thoughts
letting the trees to bring me peace.
…to dance with the colors
when the autumn smells like summer.
To feel the ground softened by fallen leaves.
To witness how the different textures
absorb and reflect light off their surface.
…to feel the windy day in my hands.
Its warmth. Its coldness.
Greeting the wind that dances
whenever it wants,
never telling where it really comes from,
or where it sails next.
…to embrace the wet days. The grey landscape
with a hint of melancholy,
seasoned with calmness.
To play with the shadows.
The humble, tender – yet dramatic light.
...to taste the frosty flakes.
And listen the crunch of the snow rind
beneath my feet.
To observe how the ice sheets breathe.
To inhale new life.
…to disappear in the landscape,
Into the nature, where the Sunday feels like a never ending hug.
…to feel how everything seems to slow down
the mind, the time -
To reunite with my dreams, hopes and desires
and dive down into endless beauty.
I go into nature…
...to feel the motion of silence
To lean on a horizon.
Own or borrowed.
And just to be
in the moment.
Just to be
