She danced in the forest

She felt timid at first, unsure how to move, wanting to be elegant, yet unable to let herself go.

    You have a very intriguing site here and I have looked around at a few different things. I liked this little ditty here as it reminded me of a walk I had in the mountains last year. It was on a day with a very synchronous date and time and I took a walk to meditate at that time. The colors that I saw that day with my eyes closed and the sun beating on my face were like nothing I have ever seen before or since.
