Go beyond vengeance… (Multi-Photo)


(Just a few days ago was the 150th anniversary of the night Abraham Lincoln was fatally shot by John Wilkes Booth.)


the energy… it’s swirling,twirling

moving through the hand

of a man named Lincoln

some leader of a land


the play went on the gun was cocked

the killer took his aim

some say the twirling,whirling cells

could only move in vein


precise premonition lying listless

across a sordid balcony floor

as disbelief and shock called out

and raced through the narrow(minded) door


icy hatred’s revenge seldom is ever beautiful

as twirling life flows beyond perceptual range

warm grace lies beyond cold malice and vengeance

apprehension leaves,arrives, as the winds of change

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.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  1. Very descriptive poem – it’s like I was there witnessing the tragic events. And tho it is a lovely photo of a spider – I’m still going to say, “Eeuw!” 🙂


      • I hear you. I did grow up scared of spiders, but I’m not exactly afraid of them now. My problem, is that we get some truly massive ones here in SA, and poisonous ones too. So I don’t want them On me!

      • Yes… I understand! The ones in our area are pretty much all non-poisonous. The one photographed here is a very massive type of Argiope Spider. There are so very many, with large webs, in an area around a pond where I often go to take photos at, that I am used to them crawling all over me as I walk through foliage. They just end up scooting off and all is well. Some people, if they saw what was happening, would undoubtedly faint.
