Measuring one’s life with coffee spoons alongside Mr. Eliot…



Here among the dust suspended is precisely where the story ended)
not that the end and beginning were ever the same
The agitating wings flapped a bird not far above rose leaves
while sequenced words inevitably turned eyes to the right

No superficial questions ever birthed deep answers
The yellow present became the future of past awareness
Ripples followed suddenlywetrocks unflinchingly
as adherents preceded authoritarians obtusely

Honey turned to nectar via six-legged winged creatures
as toilet paper touched crass politicians vehemently
(Elmer’s fun was glue as a child
Itching was scratching and blinking was deer

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!...
