The Green Meadows Hidden Beauty

by - June 06, 2017

I have fallen in love with waking up the same hour as the birds do. 
As I sit in the porch, my legs outstretched on the ledge, I watch 
as the sky turn from deep blue to a purple shade.

In the silence, 
I listen to the melody before it becomes hummed out by the sound of tires on the wet pitch.


On this morning, I made my way through the hills and tucked away valleys to the Green Meadows - Green Market.

As I amble the stone-way paths, my senses awaken.

With the earth still a little damp from the early morning dew, the sound of soft chatter from other market-goers enjoying themselves as they indulged in Local cuisine & Venezuelan Empanadas lingered across the Market.

To the outskirts, small stalls of market vendors selling local produce lay in a row.
From Pineapples to Mangoes, Sweet Potatoes to Bananas, Cocoa to Herbal plants, it was quite hard to resist purchasing everything.

Yet,
hidden in between all that the Market offers
lies natures blessings & beauty.

If you looked,
you would noticed that the verdure had thickened
and the wooden Merry Go Round faded into the background.
Brilliant delicate orchids that were enfolded between the plants had perked up,
craving to be photographed.
Above,
a bright blue and green hummingbird darting,
feeding,
back and forth,
flower to flower.

If you only looked.
