Connect With Natural and Wild Florida

If you love natural and wild Florida make that connection, no matter where you are in the world, through the photography and thoughts of Mark Renz

Forget career, riches and fame
Give me a lowly position
as a single soft strand of broom sedge
growing next to an island of palms
where I can spend a lifetime
experiencing the sun
as it rises
in the wilderness
again
and again
and again
If not a sedge
then the next best thing
a lowly human
with the desire to live simply
and witness the wild
with all my human senses
to hear the silence
taste the dew
and feel that vast yellow ball
as it begins to bathe me
and welcome me to the morning
This is the gift of life 
that I will embrace
until my final sunset
And if it’s not an imposition
to the living
Do you think you could scatter
my ashes 
in the broom sedge grasses
facing an island of cabbage palms
where I can continue
to know what it’s like
to really live?
