Why don’t you stop?

To look around and gaze at the beauty of nature?

Why are you always looking down into that bright device which beeps every minute?

It distracts you from the beauty of the things around.

Stop and look around.

The sky so blue and the hued trees emerging from the ground you stand on.

The chirping of the birds and the barking of the stray. 

It may seem nothing amazing, but if you get lost in your world you’ll miss the beauty of it.

The same sky turns orange and pink at dusk. The same trees help you live. The same bird makes the skies vibrant and that same dog made you smile.

Take a minute and pause.

Pause that phone and the stress in your mind.

Pause to appreciate all you see. 

In response to the daily prompt: Pause.

      1. Yes, I did. I’d have messaged you but it was already late and I must had dozed off. XD
        I don’t own a DSLR and have no idea how it functions but the video was a nice one. It was a tad shaky, but we can ignore it. And Chloe is my new fave cat :’)
        And that song. You found the absolute perfect song. ♥

  1. Great post Riya!
    This is definitely one of the biggest flaws of today. You stressed on a key issue here. No one nowadays enjoys nature to its worth.
    Its just sad sometimes…. 😔
