Following the trees to the Streams

Our senses take us there, to the flowing line of life deep in the quiet forest. The water calls out from a far with it's harsh splashes & echoing rapids through the tree line. "The source is somewhere near", I assured myself. Hiking through low brush & under the sky high spruce & evergreen tree's lay the rushing stream. I took out my water bottle & began to pump myself full of the glacial fed waters before me. The distant sound of two song birds rang across the open stream & I saw them experiencing the same relief I had when taking my first deep drink from the bottle. The wild provides.
