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

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

  31. 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!
