Descriptive Essay #2
Heather Riede

     Everyone has a comfortable place to escape to for relaxation.  They go there when
they need to be alone and not with people to disturb them.  My place is nature in the
summer.  The summer time relaxes me like no exact place could.  Nature, in the summer,
relaxes me with its naturedness.
     I love sitting in the grass and listening to the nature sounds around  me while it's
summer.  One of the sounds I tune to first is the sound of the birds singing and chirping
away as if they are creating a song.  After sitting for a few minutes, I'll hear the light
breeze coming down through the trees, rustling their leaves.  Besides those two things I
hear, it is a peaceful quietness that you can't get in a city or town.  That's why I love
nature, but only in the summer.  They are always associated with each other.
     When I look around me, in the summer time when I'm outside somewhere, I see
beautiful bright clear things.  For example, the tall green grass and the leaves on the trees
sway in the breeze.  Then I see bright or pastel flowers around, never too far away from
any one person.  Most days, unless rainy, are bright, sunny, and warm.  The sky is a
beautiful landscape blue with little clouds, if any, in it.  If  I'm in the forest, I see big tall
trees all around me.
     The feeling of summer all around me is friendly to me.  The sun is so warm against
my hot skin.  And the breeze cools my skin off again as it lightly touches it from blowing
down from the trees.  Then, when I am sitting in the grass, I either feel its dryness or its
moistness against my body.
     I also love the smells of summer that are in any place you are, but I will not talk
about it in this essay.  I will now say,  I absolutely am perfectly calm whenever I am
listening, feeling, and looking at the summer around me.  Summer is my favorite season,
and nature when it's summer is relaxing and comfortable.
