That’d be not ignoring the health of the environment…



These isn’ts and aren’ts

           care not beyond what they were taught

which(by the way)wasn’t worth mentioning


These can’ts and nevers

           trapped in sorrow’s mustn’ts and measures

never really move(though free they think they are)


When’ll “wouldn’t have a clue” ever transcend

           shouldn’t’s dominance?

Mightn’t hasn’t’s pain 

           be why’s responsibility?


Where’ll we be when we transcend mankind’s empty should’ves

            to,instead,keep nature’s ’tisn’ts always from happening?

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!...

  4. Remarkable captures, Wow!
    I agree the weather has been violent, it’s very worrisome… Everyone is responsible.
    Thank you, Tom!


  5. Another great one Tom, I’m amazed by these poems that separate words from their meanings long enough to cause us to have the rug pulled from under…


    • There are, David, a lot of people waking up and doing much more for the environment like, for example, people buying tiny houses and people using excellent alternative energy sources. However, a lot of people — the vast majority, in fact — are not doing enough and just don’t care. That needs to change. Time is running out, and may be past due; the winds will continue to get more and more erratic and violent, unfortunately.


  6. Its really nice to see the nature. when we are connecting to nature we can learn more things other than books. To protect nature we took small step, created an app to reduce pollution.
