(Multi-photo)**** with a poem by E.E. Cummings

Spring emerged from the primitive, frozen cocoon and transformed into the majestic, yellow and fluttering summer!  

.

from E.E. Cummings:

*********Metamorphosis*********

We’ve plodded through a weird and weary time,
    Called Winter by the calendar alone;
We have beheld an earth pool-deep in slime,
    Image a heaven of stone.

We’ve found life hid between the folds of mire,
    Sensed life in every place, heard life in tune.
The earth-shell cracks with underneath desire;
    Spring crawls from the cocoon.

Her puny wings vibrant with will to grow,
    She clings, expanding like an opening eye;
More large, more able, more developed, lo,
    The perfect butterfly.

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped. I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
