in each living Spring…



compact and entwined

in each living Spring

are Life’s splendid creatures

majestic living things


like a chrysalis patiently waiting

to joyfully unfold

Spring has books of living stories

waiting to be told


from nothing comes something

it arrives every year

few love it enough

the Treasure is near

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving 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. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  1. How on Earth did you get this amazing photo? Such tiny little lives, hardly begun 🙂
    Spring always surprises me, especially in the northern hemisphere, when suddenly everything starts bursting forth, often right out of the snow! Your poem and photo certainly capture that magic 🙂


      • Yes, they are long down feathers – I was studying the photo for a long time trying to make out what was what 🙂 I think feathers are an amazing ‘invention’.

  2. I found some baby mockingbirds one time right by our sidewalk in a shrub. I took a few pics and the next day the mom moved them. I was so upset. Nice capture Thomas.
