Summer Sonnet…

Let’s go beyond the self of space today,

Beyond the time transfixed in tradition,

Not once entrapped in space by what they say,

(Away from wars, endless strife, ambition).

 

Was Shakespeare right, about the ink of time?

His Eternal Summer never shall fade.

Will most, so wrong, remain apart from rhyme?

Beyond patterns lies whole, what must pervade.

 

So, beyond time, the timeless moves quite still.

Will clocks forget moments in stunned alarm?

The past, that’s now, en masse, must pour and spill.

Beyond all time, the timeless flows with charm.

 

Now what’s perceived each day, each time, each year,

Is what we are so much more close than near.

 

[Excerpt from the ancient Gospel of Thomas, which many top biblical scholars are now saying is closer to the historical Christ than the traditional four:

Jesus said:

If they ask you: What is the sign of your Father in you?, say to them: It is movement and rest.]

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!...
