As I stand still

As I stand still
Breath in the air
Gaze around the area
Where there is rainforest
On the valley floor
At the edge of the escarpment
And smell
The damp earth after the rain
See
The myriad browns of the mulch underfoot
The bright green of the mosses and ferns
Feel the drops of water as they fall
From the glistening wet leaves
And love the staccato vertical forest of tree trunks
Standing proudly all around me
Where
Up to the canopy
The filtered light
Reveals the innumerable greens
That delight me
