Allow


allowing all directions
to permeate inner

walking earth
supportive friend
open to sky
gift of wisdom

taking in the energies

allow penetration
saturation
at a cellular vibration

yin yang

feminine masculine
dark light

dance the spirals
the circle of life
birth

an intimate
relationship with life

  6. Gorgeous light in your photo Tammie! And it looks like a peony, and they are so lovely. Enjoyed so much your words also. "...life the devine" - love that one.

  39. Ciel and others that have felt mystified with this photo; it grew in a friends garden. I enjoyed it inside the cabin for a while. As it began to fall apart I took it out to the porch and in the morning sunlight it captured my attention. So it has fallen petals and golden morning it light showing off its' details. Thank you for asking.

    Thank you all for taking in my post and for leaving heart felt words.

    Tammie

  42. Your photos always completely showcase your poems - or is it the other way around? Hard to say which I enjoy more.

  43. The ultimate is the "intimate relationship with life and divine."

    You have a way of linking nature's life to the creator.

    thanks for the visit Tammie.

  44. This is such an amazing verse.. the words, composition are so delightful, it makes for a marvellous read.. And then, the scope, the perspective is just so huge... it is frankly overwhelming..!

  51. Energy flows in all directions but human perception is not equipped to detect and discern all of this. The ones you notice are the ones you are ready to explore more deeply at this moment. The image is fantastic, inviting visitors on a journey into the core of infinity.

  52. Beautiful poem!!! I love all the contrasts you used~ and the picture is delightfully unusual!

    at a cellular vibration". Thank you for your heartfelt words.
