The marsh in summer

This morning I walked by the marsh, hoping to see the heron and the sleek water snake. Red winged black birds cried out to each other and perhaps even to me. Small rabbits scurried beneath the brush and I spotted a dragonfly hovering above blue reflections of sky.

I started to feel philosophical, somewhat meloncholy and a little nostalgic, for all that is found and seen and appreciated and sometimes, overlooked.

    1. I always want to enjoy the moment, but sometimes there’s just an inherent melancholy, even in the bright sun. Most likely only inherent in my mind, but it’s comforting to know that it lives in other minds too.

  1. Well said for that feeling that is so difficult to convey in words. One of the reasons I like taking photographs is it really makes me more aware of what is right there, and yet I know I still don’t comprehend it all.
