Cascade of Water Light and Leaves


dance of light on water
a sensuous delight
absorbed by our sight
adds breath to inner light
enriching our deep waters

Days after I posted this, I was invited to join Magic Onions Friday Nature Table, visit to find other magical nature wonders!

  1. Soon they will freeze or be washed away. The reflections are so beautiful, almost like camouflage in the last one. You show the ebb and flow of seasons so wonderfully well.

  8. Water dissolves tension and if water can go deep underground and penetrate the barriers that have long been in place, we certainly do feel enriched, bringing sparkling clean water to the surface for all to enjoy.

  25. Such beautiful colours, Tammie. Jasmine, way back at the beginning of the comments, said something about them rekindling a memory she can't quite touch. I have a similar feeling. This also speaks stongly to me of what I said in my email yesterday - that deep connection to the earth's energy. I think your words and photos are helping me to make that connection and from the comments above, helping others to do the same thing. Thank you so much! And thanks for your comments, waiting for me when I got up this morning!
    Janice.
