Water, a Precious Gift ~

raindrops bathing in sunlight



fluid life of water
an entirely mutable dance
raining from the sky up high
seeping into earth below
quenching thirst of tree and bee
flower deer you and me
all the food and drinks
we eat
released again
to our earth beneath
an entirely mutable
and
precious
dance

this years subject is 'water'.

Water is entirely precious, essential and part of every bit of our bodies
and all life. 
To deeply appreciate what water is to our lives, is to care for its health.
As I write this post, there are over 4,000 blogs that will be honoring water in one way or another. 
You can join in, visit: Blog Action Day, sign up, and honor water on your blog, in your way.

visit: Nature's Footstep to enjoy macro photography!

  8. As always the dance between the poet and the photographer--all in one person, mesmerizes my senses.

    These are wonderful photos, Tammie! How marvelous is the light--how you caught it twinkling there, I have no idea.

    So VERY lovely...actually--it is so beautiful I can hardly find words to describe what I feel when I see these amazing photos.

    Have a wonderful day, dear Friend!

  24. Tammie, I never fully realized what a magnifier a water droplet is! Your macros are even more macro seen through the drops.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Great macros, Tammy..... OH--how we need WATER.. We are so desperate for rain here... The past couple of days, we had a chance--but it went all around us... So frustrating since we are having such a horrible drought.

    Love your pictures of the water.. We take it for granted, don't we?

    Thanks for stopping by.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  41. So lovely Tammie! I am a water sign through and through. Even images of water drops make me feel as though I've plunged myself into the glorious ocean. Thank you for the soul swim today. I'm off to think of ways I can honor water on my own blog today. :)

  42. Nice Tammie. Like crystal spheres!

  43. Tammie,

    You always capture such Magic in your photos! These photos look as if you had a conversation with the water drops. You asked them what their true essence was, and they showed it to you for some perfect photos!

  44. In honor of water...perfect subject
    soft autumn colors.
    Well done.

    ReplyDelete
  45. These photos are spectacular, Tammie. And you are right - water is such a precious gift. We experienced such terrible droughts earlier this season. Sometimes we take things such as water for granted - and it's not until we are deprived of something so simple yet vital that we realize just how wonderful it truly is. Theresa

  46. fantastic images tammie...and words of wisdom for us to ponder.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Stunning photographs... in a couple, I thought I was looking at human skin, but knew of course, it was leaf-skin. Nicely disorienting!

  65. Water is certainly the earth's most precious resource. In many areas of our planet it is remarkably scarce, and in others it is remarkably plentiful.

    Your photographs are exquisite. Just viewing them makes me think about surface tension! Thanks.
