When the Observer is the Observed…



If trees could swim

           and rocks could crawl

           perception would rise

           and feet would fall


When ladders climb

           and coffee cups drink

           wisdom would flourish

           as thoughts needn’t think


Boats went rowing 

           as plants watered themselves

           books read their contents

           and nestled in shelves 


Leaves went hopping

           while photos sat still

           up went down

           and deception went nil

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!...

  1. great poem, Thomas. Lovely toad. Is it an enchanted prince? Have a nice weekend, regards Mitza


  2. Wow… you’re doing that thing again. Everything becomes larger than life and we all fall in. It must be the toad, they’re supposed to be magical… great, thanks
