Ancestral energy lives in the stars above us, the stones beneath us. Their memory gathers in oceans, rivers and seas. It hums its silent wisdom within the body of every tree.

The Beauty in Decay

I believe in reincarnation, of varying beliefs and philosophies. I believe in it because I see the pattern of birth, life, death, and rebirth evident in all aspects of the natural world around me, but at this time of year, it is most visible to me in the woods, in the damp afternoons following a cool autumn rain. Life grows up through the decaying leaf litter and it grows on the tree trunks both dying and falling. Where death lives, it feeds and grows in unassumingly brilliant colors.
From the earth, fungus emerges, feeding off decomposition. Where it grows, beauty blooms. On a weekend walk through the woods in the Berkshire Mountains, I saw such colorful varieties of fungus. I offer you a photographic meditation on the beauty that can be born from death, if our eyes and spirit are open to see it.

My photos are not for public domain use, but I would be honored to share them if you wish to use them. Simply credit them to “Sarah Lyn” and include a link to this blog post.
