Tranquil Spaciousness


Warm days
soft spring snow
sensuous lines
transparent milky clouds
light blue sky
human heart melts
into
tranquil spaciousness


Last weekend, I wandered in search of my first wildflower of the year.
I followed enchanting clouds all day.
Two hours south I found the brilliant and tiny Yellow bells.

Glorious spring melt waters,
The Flathead River:

  3. I can't imagine not being outside ALL the time when the scenery is like this. I love it all. My favorite is the last picture, but those bright yellow bells at this time of year are just sweet!

    Those yellow bells really are sweet, they mingle in last years dry grasses and are a delight to find~

  12. When I can drink the milk from the Clouds

    When I can feel every shape from under the stars

    When I can digest all of the colour and the beauty that each flower offers

    I will have become the essence of Life

    And Life will reveal its true and elegant smile to me as I gaze into this reflective pond.

  17. Tammie, these are beautiful photos and your verse is lovely. I like my blue bells but your yellow bell is so delicate. That river is beautiful but oh so, so cold! Thank you for sharing your beautiful part of our world and have a great weekend.

  18. Tammie,
    The texture in these photos is incredible. I can feel the dry grass brushing against the fleecy clouds. The yellow bell looks like velvet. My favorite is of the silky Flathead framed by the craggy mountains. Super again...

  20. Two hours to see a flower? Reminds me of myself after a Midwestern winter. I'd have driven twice as long.

  21. Tammie: Beautiful captures of the skies and the neat landscapes.

  22. That really was quite the search for your first flowers. I am glad that you saw your goal, and were able to pull it toward you. And what a magic little flower to be your first of the year.

    That last photo is stunning with the colour of the river, very beautiful!

  27. I enjoyed them all, but the last one most due to the way the river gave depth to the picture.

  37. All are wonderful, but the first of the snow clad mountains is lie the thought of the pelt of a polar bear the way it ripples with strength.

  38. I love the majesty of those great open skies, but those yellow bells captured my heart. Looks like spring is coming, even to Montana!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am living vicariously through your beautiful wildflowers...and grass! It is coming here, I can feel it!

    OH MY GOD your photography is AWESOME. I love taking nature shots myself, but I am humbled by your talent, whoa.

    ReplyDelete
  41. PS. I need to visit Montana. GEEZ. It's got a beauty that's wild and untamed--different from the one that's in the Oregon forests.

  42. Lovely planet you live on, Ms Lee.

    Isn't it amazing how fast the windflowers are appearing now?

    ReplyDelete
  44. So very beautiful! Thank you for taking us there;) When can we go back?

    ReplyDelete
  45. The turquoise lake reminds readers of Maligne Lake in Jasper, ALberta. That natural phenomenon provokes lots of questions. The yellow dew drop flower is like a beam of fresh sunshine.

  46. There are moments I can't get my head around how beautiful our world is. Your post created such a moment. Awesome! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  47. These are all wonderful but the last one made me gasp for air. It is truly magnificent and the colour of the water running through the valley is amazing. I really love this photo immensly.

    What's more I found your poem and the photo of the wet crocus bud just enchanting.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The Flathead is absolutely gorgeous! Of course, your spring photos are incredible. I envy you your location!
