If only a picture could capture it all.
Can you hear my heart?
My heart is on the brink. Extending towards the sky to collect the sunshine, overwhelmed by the beauty. I wish I could share this moment. The peace I feel stretches out the longer I soak and sit in the sun. Some would think me a plant, drawing my energy through photosynthesis. My center is warm — I’ve never felt so warm. The feeling extends past everything I know allowing me to find my stillness. Being still has never felt so edifying. Usually I feel a need to move, I can’t help it, that is why I’ve been in dance my whole life. This moment is different, it has a sort of ethereal lense that pushes me to comprehend more. I could sit here for hours thinking about all the different things that I love. There are too many to name, such as: relationships, flowers, work, crushes, blueberries, etc. I love them all for there own unique reason — some that are silly while some are more sentimental… My family’s reason is obvious they have influenced me for the entirety of my life, providing love and comfort in any endeavor I took on. While I love frozen blueberries because they are the perfect snack — they turn my fingers and mouth purple! My thoughts focus as the sun is covered by a veil of cloud. The sun isn’t blocked, but the subtle change reminds me why I’m there. I stumbled across this park while trying to find peace. Now that I’ve found it, I know that I need to head back home, but I hope to return often to the park by the temple.
If I could take a picture with the beating of my heart, you would understand the joy.
