Since the pandemic started raging, human life has been affected by such emotions as fear, rage, and isolation making the old idiom, cabin fever, an ever-growing concern. Many people have tried to relieve internal stress through daily walks. I find it soothing and even when I walk the same route, I look for changes because nature does positively affect my mood.
I am not the only one who feels the power of nature. Blogger Mukesh Mani, states at his blog site, "Just a few minutes of being in nature makes us feel healed and restored. Nature gives us strength, drains away all negative energy and fills us to the brim with positive energy." Author, Mary Davis, notes, “A walk in nature walks the soul back home.”
To many, nature has proven to be a healer. Let's take a gallery walk through nature with some of my poet friends to read their poetic perspectives on the theme for my upcoming global gallery of artistic expressions, #NatureNurtures2020.
“Joy is finding the holy in the small and the sacred in the every day,” (Quote by Mary Davis)
even when winter-like snow nestles into spring days.
Enjoy a short-sleeve day when the weather turns back to spring.
"The more grateful I am, the more beauty I see." -Mary Davis
