Today's Inspiration & Writing Prompt

"Late one evening I stepped out of my little hut in the rice paddies of eastern Bali and found myself falling through space. Over my head the black sky was rippling with stars...behind them all streamed the great river of light with several of its tributaries. Yet the Milky Way churned beneath me as well, for my hut was set in the middle of a large patchwork of rice paddies...and these paddies were all filled with water. The surface of these pools, by day, reflected perfectly the blue sky...But by night the stars themselves glimmered from the surface of the paddies, and the river of light whirled through the darkness underfoot as well as above; there seemed no ground in front of my feet, only the abyss of star-studded space falling away forever."

"The Spell of the Sensuous" by David Abram


Write about an experience in nature that "took your breath away". Use all of your senses as you write, to help your reader feel what you felt.
