Don’t Just Stop to Smell the Flowers, Sit and Watch Them Bloom

The world is silent yet full of blooming life. It seems as if everything has stopped, as if time itself has stopped. It's an open field of grass and pink flowers under the sky with the midday sun overhead. Gentle clouds roll by looking of cotton balls, casting shadows over the rolling hills. The soft pink hues of the flowers seem to glow over the green grass as it moves in time with the summer breeze, blowing softly. It's so easy to be forgotten in the world, if for only a moment. Cicadas sound in the grass around, birds singing songs of love and joy. Nature is everywhere, it's alive, it's blooming with beauty. If only for this moment, the world doesn't exist. Only happiness in the warm summer air.
