folks flock to your kingdom
from all over the world
they wander through your flesh
open to your presence
drink of your spirit
bodies are strengthened
as stars paint the night
folks sleep deeply after a day in your glory
tis a holy sojourn
we are kindred
of the same descent
Visit: OSI, for the prompt: descent
Visit: Scenic Sunday, for landscapes around the world
Excellent words which bring the pictures to glorious life.ReplyDelete
And as with any grand symphony,decending notes are followed by rising notes.ReplyDelete
Not only was I seeing the earth as the kingdom, I was seeing the soul as the kingdom too.
Awesome photos! And your words accentuate them giving them more meaning.ReplyDelete
Pretty words and pretty photos. I love the mountains.ReplyDelete
Such beauty...love this!ReplyDelete
Natural Moments gave me the word I was looking for: a symphony. The light in the first photo is so tender.ReplyDelete
Magnificent mountains and powerful words. It must be very humbling to stand in a wonderful landscape like this!ReplyDelete
I have left you a message on your previous post too. I had to leave a message there as well. Just Beautiful!
See you again soon Tammie.;)
I love your mountains and lakes so much. I look forward to seeing them xReplyDelete
And what an amazing kingdom to visit! Nature is a great place to remember where we came from, and that we are all one. Nature embraces this truth with each moment. Love the photos!ReplyDelete

Oh, Tammie, what lovely poetry--and what amazing photos. You truly are gifted.ReplyDelete
Those images are beautiful and the poem's cool.ReplyDelete
Lovely words to go with amazing images. Sigh. I miss being out in the open.. where its green and not grey. :-)ReplyDelete
Oh and, thank you for your kind thoughts about the recent happenings.
True and beautiful words, these.ReplyDelete
Lovely words, and fabulous images.ReplyDelete
I love the texture and color of the top photograph.ReplyDelete
they wander through your flesh...
...love those craggy mountaintops......beautiful and strong. I think I would soak something up from that land too.ReplyDelete
what a lovely poem, and what gorgeous photos. I can almost smell the fall mountain air.ReplyDelete
These photos, of the same range from different perspectives, I'm assuming, are glorious. And your poem speaks to the work of my heart-mind these days...of accepting all that is given as gift.
Truly lovely. Thank you!
Hi Tammie, you put this 'kingdom' in good perspective with your poem. It helps to remember how we appreciated the beautiful places when we visited.ReplyDelete
It must be nice to wake up to this every morning. We haven't been in any U.S. mountains this year. I guess we made up for that with the Alps and the Pyrennes of Europe. Last year we did the Rockies and have been to yours before.
I want to bask in the beauty, if only for the moment. Your photo's dance to the words you write. Love and Light, Nina P.ReplyDelete
.. the rain descends - -ReplyDelete
& the light descends - -
- - they lift the spirit-

I don't know which I like most -- your words or the pictures of those gorgeous mountains.ReplyDelete
