Sketches of Sunlight

A misty morning is not the only verse, when Nature allows morning sun flecks to penetrate through the canopy, when lines of light and shadow being sketched on my hiking trail, another dreamy perspective has been proposed.

Beauty can be lit up, and it was this time, on some ordinary pieces of leaf. Layers of color illuminated and transformed, and Cinderella came to my mind, but without the luxury to stay until twelve midnight.

This then tempted me to sniff along my way up and down Cerok Tokun for more hidden beauties. Others sniffed as well. I over-heard a lady whispering how smelly I was.Oh! I had stressed myself to be soaked to the skin.

Love the green leaf. Did it have its own leafy odor?

Nature is using sunlight to point out the things you should look at along the way.

Well I think this is terrific! The leaves are excellent captures- both the shimmering gold and that deep shade of green! I re-read your poetic description and would of stayed longer if I was Cinderella (ha ha)
I wonder how much rain you get?
