I LOVE moss. It is so many things that I like.
It is supple and lush. It is many shades of green in one tiny spot.
It grows on trees, and rocks and stone and terra cotta pots.It’s sultry and sensual in a tactile, sensory sort of way. It is dense and succulent.
Most varieties are soft and beg to be touched. It loves the cool, shady spots of summer where the air remains fragrant and moist.
It perks up and is revived when the rain comes and pours itself down
upon the tiny stems and leaves of verdigris, emerald, jade and olive .The site of moss calms me. It is simply soothing.
It reminds me of bonsai and waterfalls. It incites the thought of serenity.
I can hear a wood thrush in my mind when I see moss on the ground.
In this busy world we live in,
it’s a good thing to surround ourselves with things that cause us to relax.
Moss makes me relax. Moss makes me happy.
How about you? What helps you relax?
What makes you happy this wonderful Makes Me Happy Monday morning?
