I wish I were a poet
so that I could describe the sounds of the forest.
I'd want to convey the cadence of my steps in the packed dirt below.
I'd want you to imagine the sounds of the hawks calling from above.
If I were a poet, you could imagine the peace found in the silence all around you,
and to the contrary, you could feel you were in the center of the orchestra of sounds all around you.
But alas, you can only see the world from my eyes
as I am just a photographer.
