I walked through an isolate place, a rocky place in a relaxed way, in a shapeless ease, as if my body held no single bone. The place was a hilly place. The rocks began and ended in the sky. There was a river awaiting to tell it's thousand stories by it's flowing sounds. I stopped there by the side of the river. I looked into it’s beautiful blue water, depicting the blueness of the infinite sky. I experienced the calmness of the horizons at that moment. There were the mystic feelings of nothingness with me. There was nothing to be said about me except silence and calmness.
Suddenly, There was chirping sounds from the sky breaking the silent moments, the sound that carried the picture of colorful birds exploring into the blue floating clouds, rich in secrets. But later on their chirping sounds added to the silence of the atmosphere more silently and secretly. There was the presence of impenetrable peace, dissolving into each and every corner of my body. Then I sat by the side of the river and tried to listen what it was speaking silently. The message I got from the river was quite clear: PEACE. The moments were so peaceful that I unconsciously forgot the physical presence of my body. Only physical thing I felt was the weight of the blood in my hand.
I stood up and went to the green forest near it. I felt that silence of the silent forest had a lot more to tell to me. When looked more deeply to the trees, the trees glowed and looked wet with sunrays. Silently they gave me the message: PEACE. I saw the trees all the times looking to the sky, perhaps to get some secret messages from it. When I looked into the blue sky to secretly get the message it was giving to the trees, I got the same message: PEACE.
