Passionate lipstick Dreary clouds
Angry vehicles Bored jail bars
Smiling birthday cakes Careful tightropes
Dancing shoes Hungry enchiladas
Swearing beer bottles Patriotic flags
Sleepy beds Frightened darkness
Apprehensive boxing gloves Giggling lollipops
Complimentary babies Relaxed swimming pools
Melancholy psychiatrists Laughing balloons
Lost neighborhoods Generous donation containers
Indifferent guns Conversing ketchup bottles
Impatient intersections Whistling dogs
Proud properties Disappointed traffic tickets
Thirsty deserts Indoctrinated religions
Upset bronze medals Disenchanted politicians
Peeing fire hydrants Crying coffins
Thankful presents Listening walls
Reaching sandals Talented pianos
Lying used cars Flying flower blooms
Inquisitive computer screens Excited carnival rides
Nearsighted soup directions Farsighted oak trees
Insightful questions Stagnant presumptions

Bee & Bloom (2) 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.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
Thank you, Bee! Keep buzzin’ and bein’ (de fl hours)! 🙂
These are great!! I tried as I looked over these again and again, to find a favorite. I think I laughed hardest at “Lying Used Cars”. 😀
Thank you, Lori! I smiled a lot at the Lying Used Cars one too! (Ain’t it the truth!) 🙂
All of those were spot on and made me smile… but that one really hit home. I worked in the financial industry for many years and saw plenty of “used car” deals that were shady. I did not stay in the consumer or mortgage loan areas for long – not many banks are honest about disclosing the faux pas of the loan side either. I often thought it would be a good idea to be able to hire for a reasonable cost, a purchase agent to have the consumer’s back and find not only a good car but a good financial arrangement. So many people get rooked by both the dealer and the finance company.
Crooks come in all kinds of forms and formats! The purchase agent idea sounds great! 🙂
Thank you, Belinda! 🙂 (Keep takin’ and bein’ dose foe toes!) 🙂
Very good, Thomas, I was a bit astounded about Patriotic flags´, though. Have a nice weekend, regards Mitza
Well, as you well know, Mitza, i am not into isolationist, mindless, territorialistic tribalism (otherwise known as patriotism), but am into peace and being a global citizen. I’m not a used car salesman either! Tee-hee (Even an un-understanding, separative person is the experiencing — and not separate from any experiences — even though they will not realize it.) And while others were eating turkey yesterday, for Thanksgiving, i was consuming vegetable products. Tweetie (another vegetarian) says, “Hi”! 🙂
I think in the name of “patriotism and religion” a lot of wars have been started.
So you saved a turkey for Thanksgiving. That’s nice of you. We don’t celebrate this here.
Give Tweeti a little greeting from me, regards Mitza
Yes… a lot of endless ugly wars. And the worst thing in the world is to kill another human being.
Tweetie tore up a toy of hers when i told her i was going to the store to maybe buy more toys. 🙂
These are great fun and make me think as well as smile. 🙂 Lovely treatment of your flower photo too. 🙂
Thank you 4 both, Scifi! Had fun doing them! 🙂
You’re welcome 🙂
Very clever the way you described objects with common reactions to them…love those vibrant, sunny tones!
Thank you, Karen! 🙂 The objects are seen by (and “as”) our perceptions and the same goes for the conditioned responses; so we are not separate from both.
These are all wonderful, relaxed swimming pools, I think I must have thought that’s what they are but never able to put it into words. Lying on their sides all the time, sometimes turning over. Great!
Yes, lying on their sides, turning over. 🙂 The implications of this run deep. Too many of us are of separation. Some of the best literary giants were well aware of this (among other things)… and few people are aware of all this.
Hi Tom, I love the ‘Far sighted oak trees.’ Very wise trees and wise words. Beautiful photos and a brilliant blog. Also, thanks for visiting me on mine.
Great to meet you and I will be back again.
Wonderful photo, so full of light! 🙂
