As you enter the wood, notice the hush that falls, the sense of calm in the swaying of branches, the gentle whisper of leaves.
On a hot, sunny day, the trees stretch out their boughs to offer shade. Yet still they allow sun's rays to filter through their lush green leaves, to dapple the warm ground with light.
Suddenly in the quiet, a soft footfall--through the sunny haze comes a cautious face; a nose probes carefully through the undergrowth as a single deer forrages for food. Be still, watch silently and enjoy a rare moment of nature at its best.
