Beyond the whole of merely the bowl…


it was hiding in plain sight

the unconditionedwhole

but she never really saw it

like she did the littlegreen bowl


it was always to be seen

beyond cadaverous illusion or disjointed dream

but separative frag ments can not be it

like a drop ped b owl that was gre en


it’s popular to show off your wares

to all you know, to many friends of natty seg ments

but real joy is not to splinters shown

nor can be vis u ally ad mired by bro ken frag ments

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. Great poem.. ánd that second image!!! Sublime work 🙂 (although i realize i should not separate the image from the poem from the blog from the whole :P)


  2. I can only agree with Pieter Navis, Thomas. Wonderful poem and photo. Hope you are fine. I’ve been in Greece for a month and now try to process 1000 photos! Regards Mitza
