No Worries


She dropped worry
like a coal on fire
with the realization
that her observation
might not truly be
an actuality
might not truly be
in sync
& reality
it might actually be
based on old
beliefs
or even fantasy
why not simply be
with
love

  4. TLee: I like that coal on fire, my Thoreauvian amiga.

    I'm curious if there were a different TLee before the anointing of the cabin in the woods. One day, we should have that conversation.

  9. Ann,
    I sense the deer was eating grass along the water. This deer is protected, as it was in Glacier National Park. Other deer are protected much of the year until hunting season. We have lots of deer, I see them every day.

    Murat11,
    We can have that conversation. The simple response would be yes and no. I don't change much and I change a lot.

    Sharon,
    Yes I also enjoy when an animal looks at me. I wish I did not make them 'worry', ha.

    Genie Sea,
    Thanks for taking the message in.

    Great thanks to all of you for your visit and comments!

  15. I love this! You put the worry-wart of the world on the front cover—the deer, who puts mouth to grass but can’t even eat because every time it tries it hears or senses something so many times it has to run off into the woods—you pair it with these freeing verses! Brilliant : )

  16. Truly an all important realization. Everything is beautiful without judgement based on past experiences.

  17. Hi Tammie, this is neat. Even worry with love intensifies.
    My Mom used to worry about the strangest things concerning me.

  19. Sweet shot of the deer...it's so graceful looking. Don't you just love those big ears...they can hear so well with them. Your flower shot reminds me of what many of our trees looked like around here about eight weeks ago! Spring comes much earlier here. The colors are so intense and vivid. Enjoy the week...

  24. I love the deer

    Steve and I saw a mamma deer and her two babies. They ran into the forest before I could snap a pic. Spring has officially arrived here. Finally!

  27. If this is my second comment. LOL The first one sailed off somewhere. The final three lines are eloquent and speak of wonder. Your photos are, as always, stunning `alive and breathing' (so to speak)!

  28. One view is reality is constant. One's perception evolves. That is, how you choose to see the world and yourself changes as you choose to discern and discard illusion.
