I had a lovely hike around Lake Fayetteville.
This is my favorite spot to go hiking near town. I kept hearing the word “elementals” while hiking. It became a mantra as I was hiking, savoring, slowing down, and harmonizing with nature. She shared many wonderful gifts that day, including ones I couldn’t capture with my cellphone; a beautiful butterfly that was camera shy, many songbirds, and a dragonfly that landed on my camera! I also came back with a bad case of chigger bites that didn’t show up until a day later once they had started feasting on me. 🙂
Thankfully, I wasn’t aware of them during my hike with the nature elements. Even more fun is the definition for elementals that I found on Wikipedia. It defines elemental as “a magical entity who personifies a force of nature and controls natural powers derived from their element.” Let’s pretend I became a wizard for the day, playing with nature! 🙂 Either way, I’ve decided to share my photos in a series of posts with poems and images called elementals.
I hope you enjoy them. 🙂
