A Moss and Zen Garden






Oh how I would love to come here often and just have some time to be


                         quiet, breath


                                    and  relax



maybe just take a moment to contemplate about my life





                     and where I’m going


                                      but its too easy to get


               distracted in this space…







- its just too beautiful here …





          I love this tactile environment - I want to run my hands all through this beautiful


                       moss, then look at all the details

                                                                    up close










                                     little micro-organism.





                     Its very green and lush here, a perfect environment for this moss to grow


along with these ohia trees with their peeling bark and crevices filled with


green fungus




                  and bumpy looking bacteria





                                        on their stong limbs and stems.





                  I look up and see the focal point atop a small mound of lava rocks and moss


lies a beautiful and simple buddah head


                                               – its sits there so peacefully and




invites you in to come in and enjoy this welcoming environment.


                                  Aaaaaaaah – yes breath in this forest


                                              and enjoy the moss!


I wish that I could visit here more often…..

Just looking at the photos gives me a peaceful feeling - I can imagine what it must be in real life.

Hi Noel, yes it is a very tranquil environment, i love that setting too! Can you please remind me what is the volcano at the Big Island, is it Kilauea? I remember on the way there we saw the environment looking like that, mossy forest. Maybe because it is already high in elevation.

So beautiful and tranquil. I love moss.
Hawaii is on my list of places I would love to visit! It looks so pretty.

Hi Noel, On the weekend we visited a nearby waterfall that was in the most beautiful ravine. Many of the rocks were moss covered. There is something so magical about moss. Its green is so intense and its surface so velvety smooth. Moss has a pure simplicity that flowers do not. Perhaps that is why it is so calming and so soothing.

Your pensive soliloquy and vivid photos transported me to a fabulous world of calm and tranquility. I could almost sense the coolness and the humidity and smell the earthy aromas.

Thank you, I need that.
