Walking down a new path,
a path cut through the tangled jungle.
Epiphytes with roots growing up instead of down.
Brand new baby ferns not even half an inch tall
towered over by their 8 foot tall parents.
Hummingbirds barnstorming tiny little flowers high above.
Mangrove roots seeking air, poking like fingers up out of the marsh's muck below.
Curious birds peering at the curious intruder.
A new world has opened right in front of me.
I am in awe.
