Beyond Caterpillar… (a poem about psychological, not physical, ending…)


[When one (while quite alive) is not merely recognizing things that were learned — including the images of self — then there is the possibility for that pure flame (which is beyond the musty, dusty, stored past) to flower without effort of any kind.]


If wondrous joy

thou doth employ

one’s being must sometimes let go

of its carriage


For being is becoming…

and always reaching

will never ever

capture the marriage


For psychologically ending

is real life befriending

which no wise unbeing

will ever disparage

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!...

    • Thanks much, Sci! I photographed the butterfly in a wonderful meadow that was beautiful until someone illegally had dumped tons of drywall and concrete in it from a house that must have been demolished. Fortunately, the farmer who owns the land had the stuff taken away properly. Now it is beautiful again! 🙂


      • It makes me so mad when builders do this. We see it here sometimes too. Well dome to the farmer though 🙂
