mixed in the mud
dimmer than never
brighter when always
creeping so shyly
(finer than sand dunes
nowhere to be found
falling with snowflakes
rising in time
once upon ever
words were their reading
slowly as learning
fast as a crime
Mixed in the mud. Photo by Thomas Peace c. 2016
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.
