The ice, as dangerous as it can be, is beautiful. The ice falling through the trees is peaceful. The cracking. And tinkling. Brings me peace somehow. I think sometimes we take for granted the beauty of mother nature. We also don’t respect it enough. The chaos and damage it can cause, but the fact that it is beautiful in its own right. It does what it wants. The silence of the woods full of snow. The tinkling of ice in the trees. The crash of waves or water from the waterfall. The power behind a beautiful lightning storm. There is a certain aspect to mother nature that is just amazing and something that we take for granted. I feel like we as people who live surrounded by mother nature should respect her better.
