Paradise

I welcome the escape of nature.

A beautiful green forest with the bright colours of blooming and blossoming flowers – red, purple, yellow and white. My fingers itch to pluck them from the soil. If I find some daisies, I can perhaps make a daisy chain.

The breeze blows my long blonde hair back. Goosebumps form on my face and neck as the cool air makes contact with my skin.

The warm grass feels so soft under my bare feet. I step out of the shadow of a tree trunk and into the sunlight which instantly warms my skin, causing me to relax and feel at ease erasing all my previous worries away. The sun is hidden by the tall trees and its branches.

Walking deeper through the forest, I come across the sound of soft crashing and flowing water. It brings me towards a beautiful, blue waterfall. The water is so clear, I can make out the cave and rocks behind the waterfall.

A few people jump off from the top with their arms raised above their head. Excited screams and carefree laughter briefly disappears into the waves.
