The intricately crafted art work of a miniature wren’s nest slender twigs and moss
 woven just so,
a rising prodigious harvest moon silhouetted against the shadowed horizon with a
  surreal orange glow,
the pellucid clarity of a hovering skylark’s pure solo, an undulating concerto 
emanating from distant sky,
the adroit aerial acrobatics of diminutive monochrome swallows, summer visitors
 soaring so high.

The beauty of a spectral white and fawn speckled barn owl gliding as though in
 silent flight,
diaphanous smoke grey mist resting above low lying water meadows at dawn, an
 ethereal sight,
the impenetrable canopy of a clear frosty black velvet night, star constellations
shining bright,
following the golden orb’s gradual descent into the horizon with candescent white
 gold twilight.

The sunlit iridescent liquid curtain of the spray halo of an ageless mountain fed 
 torrential waterfall,
standing in white frosted bracken announcing his prowess, a territorial red deer
  stag calls,
appearing overnight, a crimson and white spotted toadstool with a fluted skirt of
 white frills,
mischievous sun and cloud create fluid light and shade across sculpted purple 
 heather covered hills.

In adjacent and distant trees a family of young tawny owls calling in the indigo silence
 of night,
familiar landscape transformed by an overnight blanket of flawless snow creating 
luminous clarity of light,
 each day natures bestows an abundance of transposing beauty whether summer, autumn
 winter or spring,
taking a moment to listen and look around instils a feeling of peace and belonging that
observing nature can bring.

Happy Birthday Matt love from Zara
