Tiny Realm



stepping into the tiny world
of green
of light
of spheres that hold tight
to blades of moss
that thrive in spring



kneeling
to immerse in the tiny world
to see that there is more
than our obvious realm
to let
sunlight held in melted snowflakes
court my heart




for the tiny realm
is a mystical province
with the ability
to enchant us into our sacred

  15. Tammie, you are a firstclass photographer! Your macros depict simple subjects, but you changed them into pieces of art and your poetry is very good and the meaning of it is not difficult to understand.

  20. Truly stunning. Isn't amazing how a camera can see more than we can with our eyes? Your photos convinced me that I should get a "real" macro lens someday, rather than sticking with my point-n-shoot for the "tiny realm". Wow.

  25. To have the eye to truly see what Nature provides and also the words to express the beauty is rare. Your photos allow me to see and your words to experience this
    "mystical province." Have a very special weekend, Tammie.

    Unfortunatelly, the situation looks like I have no possibility to go to the wild till next weekend... so, this shots would help me to pass through these days. And then I'll also take my shots - the spring is so beautiful these days!
    Blessed be!
