Glacier National Park


entering the wilds
of your land
fingers of your presence reach out
and touch me
fingers like sunlight
pouring through a forest of trees
surround and enter my being
like a fearless lover
wanting to know the flesh of my heart
the flesh of my spirit
the flesh of my soul
opening to your caress
union

  18. Union is perfect. Your words went straight to my heart, maybe you will remember why! Do you think a Scot named McDonald was the "first" to set foot in this paradise? It is paradise, isn't it? Have a wonderful weekend.

  28. I adore both images, Tammie - the fine wispy skies in the first and the great majesty of the second with its perfect composition and beautiful reflection. The second image has a very Japanese feel about it.
