Slapped By The Sun in the Forest

The sun shocks the forest today.

What looks like white flowers turn out to be hard rays of light slapping against the greenery.

Just dots of rays slicing through.

Strange yellows descend into the green haze.  White Light.

Heat of the summer begins.

Someone wore a white sox.

Bugging flowers.

Buzzing flies and humming bees.

Hiss and Hush

and you can creep right up and observe.

Who went here? I w/o/ander.

The visual heat of the light makes it easier to see a thing by the shadow it is

casting.

Roots reaching.

Balling out and into.20190611_1143126097203433938437498.jpg

Creating

A lee.

Shelter and cover.

Shade being thrown over you.20190611_1143295143255687532570050.jpg

The cottonwood graces those spiderwebs which are so finely spun they are only indicated by the cottonwood snow.

Flight caught from above and below.

 

A containment of water.

A o O 0

A circle almost completed.

Ferns shade a shallow empoolment of liquid.

The evaporation will be affected.

Effect of dissipating one state of matter

into

another one.

Water Still.

A very tiny rabbit hole, unless you are tiny.

Light falling on water

Hidden in the corner.

Glassy separation not frozen.

Inching.

To the edge.

These are the chambers.

There are levels.

Of a ladder.

Alice says.

Four out of five days a new mole surfaced only to fall asleep

Again.

Again.

Again.

Not-again.

Again.

New to the world of blogging, I have always been fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer (predominately non-fiction and scholarly work) With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I want to improve and am particularly interested in science blogging and creating science content as a freelancer. I work for a wonderful company procuring high asset/risk insurance coverage for niche businesses and professionals, not fitting typical underwriting models as a day job. I am excited to share my journey through scientific discussion, essays, how to's, technical papers, creative non-fiction, with some free verse prose thrown in for my own fun. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.
