森林“悦”动之绿色的祝福

“ 有时候,我不能把眼前的美好的时间牺牲在任何工作中,无论是脑的或手的工作。我爱给我的生命留有更多余地。有时候,在一个夏天的早晨里,照常洗过澡之后,我坐在阳光下的门前,从日出坐到正午,坐在松树,山核桃树和黄栌树中间,在没有打扰的寂寞与宁静之中,凝神沉思,那时鸟雀在四周唱歌,或默不做声地疾飞而过我的屋子,直到太阳照上我的西窗,或者远处公路上传来一些旅行者的车辆的辚辚声,提醒我时间的流逝。我在这样的季节中生长,好像玉米生长在夜间一样,这比任何手上的劳动好得不知多少了。这样做不是从我的生命中减去了时间,而是在我通常的时间里增添了许多,还超产了许多。” ——《瓦尔登湖》篇章声节选 此刻2021年1月18日。 回忆把我带回到了近一年零五个月以前的瓦尔登湖。那个夏日的傍晚我曾奔赴一场别样的森林演唱会——在被雨水浸润的包裹着的静谧的林荫小道里哼着绿色的旋律,在绵绵细雨下品味遥远年代里梭罗的生活状态和他对自然真切的体悟⋯ In wildness is the preservation of the world. -Henry David Thoreau 紫玫瑰拍摄于瓦尔登湖,2019年8月21日 外面的世界安静得很,似乎在小憩。我没有携带雨具,便是淋湿了。在雨水的冲刷下,也竟感觉洗净了倦了的身体。身边的游客寥寥无几,兴许是下雨的缘故;脚步的声音似乎都能够听到,徐徐探行中把烦恼抛到了脑后。或许自然母亲的用意难以揣摩,绿色的雨帘缓缓的随着渐行渐远的足迹延伸到了森林的怀抱中。仔细听,那是蛐蛐的独奏,雨滴和叶子的摩擦激荡了一番生动的交响乐——时而紧凑时而松缓,时而清朗,时而柔和.....末夏的雨水和湖面的敲击形成了更加环绕的立体音响,驻足密林深处仿佛也可以听到那富有韵律的充盈和流动。林子里蠢蠢欲动的小昆虫似乎也一展身手——不远处的螳螂挥舞着它的大刀突然从树叶的夹缝中“噌”的一跃跳到了泥泞小路的正中,像是在热情的打招呼——定睛一看,嚯!还有一小撮知了的羽翼在它的阔斧中,正享受着战利品的螳螂奏了一翻独特的插曲。路边的野花伸展着它们灿烂的胸怀正在迎接那闻声赶来的蜂鸟一起弹奏着和翩翩雨滴编织的舞蹈伴乐。瞧,那还有松鼠正搬动着好大一颗松果,小心翼翼的保护着它的宝贝,和雨水密集的主旋律竟也分辨不出是谁在唤醒沉睡的谁......闭上眼睛,深呼一口气——潮湿空气的间隙里,是蘑菇从土壤里崭露头角的气息。温柔的风把树上棕红的树叶“簌簌”的像打滚儿似的降到了搬运工小蚂蚁的背上,它抖了抖身子,敏捷的转了个圈儿又继续向前了...... "To be alive in this beautiful, self-organizing universe - to participate in the dance of life with senses to perceive it, lungs that breathe it, organs that draw nourishment from it - is a wonder beyond words." … Continue reading 森林“悦”动之绿色的祝福
