Beneath Sunlit Waters


golden light
ignites rolling waters
flavors the atmosphere
with texture
filling the air
thoughts
and yearnings
with an ancient knowing
that is deep as deep can be

golden light can permeate
and flow
to fill
the spine of life
awakening
a soothing exhilarating fire
the sleeping goddess
who undulates within living waters
she
kindles the heart of life

  18. The water is so clear! We always seem to be on the look out for fish, but rarely get to see them so clearly!

    You have captured so beautifully so many senses in this post for me. Gazing at your photo I feel the cool on my feet as I delight in the sunlit waters, stones underfoot feeling movement of water from fins swiftly swimming by...

  30. Hellow Tammie:
    I saw the bear at the Miami Zoo. It wasn't a very good day for taking animal pictures because it was so hot. All the animals were either not out at all or resting under the shade. I felt fortunate that I saw this bear up and walking.

  31. How many different ways can I possibly say that your photography and poetry are absolutely stunning? I don't know, but I do have a hefty vocabulary :)

    Talk about bathing in gold. :)

  33. The colours are amazing. I have to ask: what are they?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ah, thank you all so much for your visits and comments and appreciation. You touch my heart.

    Ciel,
    I believe they are large Whitefish, at least that is what I was told. I wonder if my town was named after them. Most likely, eh! Seems I better do some research.

    With warmth,
    Tammie

  40. This might be one of my favorite poems of yours. I love the echoing intimacy of "kindle," "undulate," the "spine of life," "the heart of life," -- all that backed by that fabulous golden light. Just beautiful!
