Time and Space

I just kept listening to the sound of the forest.

In the forest filled with clear water,
Tranquil silence and relaxing time flows.

While touching beautiful moss as if water crystal,
Feeling the scents of plants and soil.
Breathing slowly,
It is getting soak me into the wind and time flowing into the forest.

Forest takes a breath quietly,
As well as keep living strongly and powerfully.
Receiving the raindrops, light, and wind with the whole body,
Continues giving something values deep in the earth.
Feeling the enormous flow of time,
Imagine eternal life,
Then, you would understand the meaning this forest lives.

Nobody in the silent space,
I forgot that time has passed,
And I did nothing but just kept listening to the sound of the forest.
