Cloudscapes

Without a doubt, one of my favoriteparts of life isclouds. The soft pastelsat dawn lift me upand take me home;sunset-backdropped,at day's end,I am delivered again,haloed in gold.  Nature-ensconced, nature-infused, nature my lifeline,nature my truth-school. I befriend every creature and petal,explore every infinitesimal detail,lose all track of time in the macrofinding clues about myself,  but nothing He has madeentrances … Continue reading Cloudscapes

In The Eye

Don't tell me there is no divinitywhen I am looking heaven in the eye,infused with the essence, soul-transfixed, lifted,swirling upwards as colors become light,and the ingress solicitously entices the spiritas form sublimes, shapeshifts until undefined,and passes through the full transfusion of serenitythrough the glowing portal in the after-pouring sky. Poem and this evening's photo ©LauraDenise

Cloud Sails

Nothing perpendicular nor parallel nor artificial about the clouds, the only construction in how they are always self-shifting, in motion, morphing into pictures and infinite undefined shapes. No straight lines to not cross nor borders boxing in the imagination, already dissected and discarded by the non-hands of mortal science “experts,” the angels that form them, … Continue reading Cloud Sails

Befriending Bumblebees

Befriending bumblebees,watching cloud-shapes come to life,making majestic the flowering weeds,the peace around me seeps in when I am outside. (See the bumblebee?) Time may tick, but no manmade clockinterrupts Laura's la-la land thoughts.I am one of them, the nature alive in the yard,no language needed when you are birthed from the stars,though I do whistle … Continue reading Befriending Bumblebees

Inextinguishable

Above the clouds,looking down,I see the beaconunable to be buriedbeneath the wavesat the "bottom" of the abyssal sea:it shines for me, lighted gemof hopeat the heartof the ocean's soul, Mother of the lightthat has long beenimplanted in me.I recline on the sky-drops,and the automatic echofrom my chest begins to flickerits internal glow. Poem and images … Continue reading Inextinguishable

It is the Sky

Awesome and tranquil Seasoothes me, strokes me with peace... The Mountains huddle protectivelyand I feel snug in the middle of their majesty... The Woods beckon me to wander endlessly,enchanted by flickering sunbeams between trees.... Unsurpassed beauty in the petals' intricacies,I hesitantly unfurl with the Flowers delicately... But of all of the nature in gifted creation,nothing … Continue reading It is the Sky

Ice and Fire

Ice crystals upon Florida blades, clouds engulfed in raging flames, Jack Frost and Robert fill my brain... but neither fire nor ice do I perceive in any way save benevolently, a campfire in the sky that enraptures delightfully; I watch it just the same, hypnotized by nature's shapeshifting. The rareness of this kiss of frost … Continue reading Ice and Fire
