Awake

That everywhere is awakingly here

           is ouryourheshemy joy and compassion

           until we

take

        that

               first 

                      step

(which is also quite the

                               last)

           in sequential perpetuity

(at which point some will wonder 

why God doesn’t intervene or

show us the answers)…

We had them all along,you see

           but eyes were kept perpetually closed

just as everyone else’s were

           since we’re a facsimile of them

           and they’re a facsimile of us

           and everything conceived is

            second-hand and artificial

And there are dreams while we sleep

           though most are never really awake

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!...

    • Thanks much, Mitza! I gave Scarlet a Roudybush piece out of her bowl, while she was out on a perch, and i said to Teetie, “I suppose that you want one too!” Tweetie then said, “Yes, i do!” I then said, “I don’t know why i have to give you a Roudybush from your own bowl; you are so spoiled.” Tweetie replied, “So are you!” 🙂

  1. Would be very interested knowing in the camera(s) and settings used – Love seeing the work of others who are equally enthralled with the charming, diminutive living world all around us that most people never pay attention to.
