Heart Blossom



May one’s heart blossom 

to a true compassion

and a love

for nature


May one’s compassion blossom

to a true heart

and a nature

for love


[Side Note:  My wife, Marla, though there have been complications, continues to do much better, improving following her shoulder replacement therapy.]

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. Thank you for letting us know that Marla is doing better. Pray for her. Beautiful photo and words, Tom.


      • That arm brace thing is a nightmare to have on. They are very hot and sleeping in this is not an easy thing to do. I ended up sleeping in a recliner for 2 months. I hope things look up for her soon she sounds like a very strong woman.

  2. I’m happy to hear that Marla is recovering after her grueling op. I hope she feels better soon.
    And I love the word-play in your poem; really makes you think 🙂
