Effervescent's Experiences Entry 2: Awe of Nature

Hello everyone! (*・ω・)ノ Recently, I have been reading some nature poetry for school. I also had a little writing project of my own to do. The prompt was simple, describe a time in which you felt "In awe of nature". Since nature is important to many of us, I thought it might be worth sharing my experience with all of you as well!

I remember it like it was yesterday. The morning had started like any other. I was going about my usual morning routine of letting my dog outside, and shortly after that taking a shower and getting dressed, then finally finding some breakfast. Or at least... I usually would. I didn't get that far until much later in the morning. See, when I opened the door for the dog to go out I was greeted by a shocking sight.

After last night's rain, the town was bathed in a thick fog. Though, at that moment, it felt like the entire world was shrouded in the haze. Now, I am far from fearless or spontaneous. Not often would I do something so bold. But with a sudden determination, I slipped on my shoes, stepped outside and shut the door behind me, staying quiet as to not wake anyone else up. Without a sound, I surrendered to the allure of the mist.

The air was quiet and still, the moisture sticking to the fabric of my pajamas. On any other day, I may have detested the feeling of the vapor clinging to my skin and hair like a drowning man to a life raft. Today, I didn't mind though. The scene was far too magical for me to care. I never left my backyard, but that morning it felt like I had stepped a different realm of mystery and magic.

I wandered around the yard in silence, the lull only disturbed by the occasional morning songbird and the sound of my own footsteps. Much of my time there was spent simply taking in the scene, with the rest being carefully captured by a camera. But of course, while the photos may not fade, the moment was ephemeral. After a while, I slipped back inside and continued about my morning. The fog would soon fade from sight, though it still remains in memory.
