Love At The Edge Of A Petal
"Summertime in the Forest, for anyone attuned to the life force found here, is an unabashed flurry of loving energy flowing throughout it, and I can't help but be intoxicated in the feeling. Weekly, new wildflower blooms abound, unabashed in both frequency and mass, and the forest celebrates. Its an ebb and flow of one species rising and then falling to the next, week by week, as they take turns soaking up the forest's nutrition, and providing a continued and varied harvest. Its a non-stop season of flowers surrendering themselves to loving abuse, where its many insatiable pollinating suitors plunder them over and over, indulging so completely, they emerge from the silky vibrant folds covered in a filthy glow of pollen. The love of the forest is found here, waiting at the edge of a petal, and my heart swells." ~ Jack Mountain
