Wander Into Nature

And Nature, the old nurse, took

The Child upon her knee,

Saying: ‘Here is a story -book

Thy Father has written for thee.’

‘Come, wander with me’, she said,

Into regions yet untrod;

And read what is still unread

In the manuscripts of God.’

Longfellow The Fiftieth Birthday of Agassiz

I came across these words recently on the first page of a book I am reading and they immediately reminded me of the Bhorgiri trek we took a few years ago. It was one of my first experiences of walking out in Nature and being the monsoon the experience was fantastic. One that I have craved for again and again. To feel free and to experience Nature as it is meant to be.

Here are a few images from that wonderful outing.

Till date, I have not identified this tree.. And it was the only bare leafless one, surrounded by a profuse burst of green.
The mist covered hill beckoned us …
Some Orchid on the tree.. could not photograph properly due to the rain
We walked through a thick jungle, over rocks and gurgling streams.. the forest showed some of its mysteries to us..
The entire countryside was covered in a glorious green carpet..

I did identify some trees and herbs, but the lasting impression was of the green countryside… Raw. Rejuvenated. Glorious.

I am joining Parul in her ThursdayTreeLove blog hop. Do head over to see some fantastic trees from around the world. Better still, join in.

  1. That first shot is out if the world. Brilliant! I have heard Maharashtra is heaven in monsoons. VT and I want to go on trip that side during monsoons. One day maybe. Thanks for joining, Archana! See you tomorrow:)
