Empty



behold
in you
infinite new life
creative possibilities
a breath that has never been lived
ever before
empty for stillness to permeate
then inspire
because
the invisible world
of endless possibilities awaits


to be born
in your breath
your hands
from the depth of your heart
passion of your belly
let the breath of life rise
and animate
abundant possibilities
~

  2. First, your verse is just beautiful. The shots magnificent. It is always a challenge to get drops on flowers without getting the drops on your lens shooting a macro :) These are just stunning.

  71. Wonderful words, Tammie. I would stay all day if a whisperer wouldn't quit telling me these.
    Like your flower pictures too!

    I am sooooooo late. I am sorry. You can tell that I don't have my priorities right. Now I am multi-tasking, watching college football, reading the OSI blogs that I should, and preparing my Sunday school lesson to teach tomorrow.
    Of course it didn't help that until late Monday night we were on the road (Canada).
