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 mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with 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: tom8pie.com (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!...
