To stop and smell the flowers
To see the dew drops glistening on the leaves
To admire the dance of sunlight through the trees
To listen to nature's orchestra conducted by the birds
To be mesmerized by the rippling of water on the lake
For, if you don't
The dew drops will desiccate
The dance will disappear
The flowers will dry and wither
The orchestra will dwindle
The rippling will die down
And all you will be left with
Will be regret for the time that was.
I am a scientist by profession, employed in the life sciences industry, a mother of two awesome boys. I have always been interested in reading and writing. Words captivate and enthrall me. In my spare time, I like to write, read, go on nature hikes, try new recipes and travel.
