Sunset Sky in Montana

These photos are of one evening:



inhale
the sky fills you
exhale
you fill the sky

walk
the earth supports you
eat
your body is made of earth

see
your world alight
nourishment
via eyes

speak
you are the music life hears
listen
hear the song of birds
laughter
your heart beat

we are the world
the world is us

  3. You definitely do "help my spirit," Tammie. Such beauty in both the photos and the poem. Somehow, you always find the universal truths. Remember - I'm first in line when there is a book!

  24. Oh my...such beauty! I can't believe that you knew our group photo was taken at the Nepenthe Restaurant! I guess you have been there a few times.

  46. It's all impressive.

    Samuel Taylor Coleridge has this to say:

    O, it is pleasant, with a heart at ease,
    Just after sunset, or by moonlight skies,
    To make the shifting clouds
    be what you please,
    Or let the easily persuaded eyes
    Own each quaint likeness
    issuing from the mould
    Of a friend's fancy.

  52. Tammie, I shot that image at my home town Ganjam, far from New Delhi. It was noon and I looked the sky and captured the image immediately. No rising sun, no smoke, no storm. A simply sky. Believe me, I did not manipulate the image.

    I wanted to thank you for your beautiful and warm message to me earlier this summer. I appreciated your visit and your kindness, and the strength and comfort it brought me. Thank you for your friendship.
