Mountains: Thrilling Presence




rolling down the road
to the land of majesty
and mystery
beauty huge and profound
slight tightening within
revealed as gentle tears
in the presence of a master
evidence of my beliefs
not in sync with mighty potential
absolute beauty

Beliefs are not your true self. Beliefs are conditioned. Absolute beauty has nothing to hide, deny or prove.

joanne May said...

Wonderful view, Tammie. I can imagine it would bring tears to my eyes too, if I was visiting this beautiful place. I would like to stay in the little house for a few days, or is it a barn? I bet it is so peaceful...
Thank you for sharing a lovely post.

Postcards from Wildwood said...

Such a beautiful scene, Tammie. I love the warmth of the wood and the crispness of the mountain scene. And I can feel the warmth of the sun and the coldness of the air in the shade.

Walk in the Woods said...

So very lovely. The sky on the water begs to be explored ... like a deep well ... with treasures far below.

People paint pictures of scenes like this. It takes my breath away. Those mountains are some of the most picturesque I've seen.

the deep turquoise water balanced by the sky-
the warm rusty tones of grass and wood-
those stunning mountains


Impressive work, Tammie.

Natural Moments said...

Very beautiful Photo Tammie. There are so many layers to this picture. One can focus in one of many areas, or can take in the whole scene.

Like the layers in the photo, we can create tension by focusing in on the details of the photo and forgetting about how all the details together form a greater picture. When we shift to the whole, tension is released, tears are shed, and joy is recovered.

Jane said...

Beautfiful image Tammie, thanks for sharing:)

cieldequimper said...
