Changeable Dance of Water


fluid
frozen
shadows and light
colors dance
to our delight
wood and stone
don't dance alone
they mingle
a life of
varied textures

  5. These photographs are beautiful. We had some snow here in The Netherlands, and still a lot of cold - but no ice like this. But of course, we do not have little waterfalls over here...

  18. Textured Tones....

    Its like the spirit that flows temporarily takes form and soon dissolves to discover its self as a new form. This takes time and is timeless.

    I think you have a specialty unraveling before you Tammie. A few more winters of these "chrystaline moments", and you will have a volume of poetryin action to impart to the world.

  20. To catch the flow of water, the sculpture of ice, and the texture in the stream all in one photo is amazing, Tammie - your poems always make me think. (I received your E-mail and will respond as soon as I'm able.) PS Was amazed at how many visitors the Magic Carpet brought you!

  55. Tammie,

    I believe you captured the essence of the definition of life that I was just pondering about. Our time here on earth really is one of shadow and light, fluid and frozen, one of contrast for us to experience.

    Beautiful photos as always! You have such an eye for water and ice, and the dance the do together.

    ReplyDelete
  56. These are just wonderful. Best winter photos I have seen this year.

  57. Hi Tammie,

    Have a lovely creative weekend.
    Much Love, Jo.x
