Autumn Sunset


Autumn Sunset

in the presence of light
we are purified

in the presence of color
we come present

in the presence of mountains majestic
rich spaciousness

in the presence of light
a luminosity that nourishes

in the presence of reflection
we soften with the satiny surface

with sunset
we breathe 
in sync with life

Gorgeous sunset!

Bernie Krausse said...

When we let the light release its inner rainbow, there is then color to be sewn into all landscapes that are inherently scenic.

Carolyn said...

You capture the beauty that surrounds you so beautifully in word and art! I want to slip and canoe in this lake and experience it all.
Thank you for sharing.

Autumn sunsets are more colorful when adding to the fall colors all around.

I love your pictures. Montana? For sure wide open spaces and rugged mountain peaks.

Hello Tammie, As I spoke your lines aloud and looked at your photos, I felt my whole body/spirit relaxing. Both of the photos invite the eyes to explore. I see your only snow so far is on the peaks. I have snow in the yard now - my long walks have gotten a bit more difficult!

Wow Tammie!
Stunning views and so dramatic. I love your landscape photography and I always think that your images should be in the National Geographic magazine!

Well, there really aren't any words to describe how completely gorgeous this view is. Especially the top one... I had to just sit & stare for a few moments. Breathtaking, really.

Wonderful pictures!!!!

The Poetry Palace said...

impressive.

Gyanban said...

I liked the words better than the photographs.
I think while writing poetry, flow is critical - and your poem has a lilting flow to it.

Enjoyed reading.

SandyCarlson said...

Yes, yes, yes. Thank you for warming my night.
