Wood Gathering with Beauty is a form of life,
that once striking the eye of the be-holder,
can thereafter only suffer all the better of ‘very good’,
where manics of frozen frames walk away wondering at what moment in time they missed the boat….

—-ah yes it is so,
sometimes i waunder in and out of forest wonder,
filling my head with the three graces of eve,
‘give’-’gather’ and ‘gustable’....

—-now having this pleasing form before my eyes,
i pause and answer the voice that comes from places i go,
where in the hollow hallowed land of all i am,
my spirit soars with the exclaimed sound of beating eagle wings….

—-the eagle spirit soars,
where giants of doubt are cast adrift,
as what i once doubted in my-self,
was but the fodder-of-fear scavenging turkey’s seeking to hold me down….

....and once i knew the encrypted cans of failure dogma’s,
i went looking to re-claim my best,
up here is where i now am found in living life at full-of-zest,
so if you pass my way be sure to join in the ‘song-of-singing eagle wings’....

And so I took these yesterday on a trip up north to take care of some business and having time between two meetings, I took a walk in the woods. The following pictures are taken from the top of Cathedral Ledge and are also looking out over Echo Lake; North Conway, NH.

....come step with me through the veil, that invites one to partake of better desires….where the doorway of the soul, is but the opening for attainment into the fullness of spirit….and so I stopped a moment to drink from this expression of now….

....and so while walking, this one of beauty called my name and so I blessed the sweetness of green against the granite of blue-grey….

....and then the wood stood up to speak, pardon the expression, but I’ve been waiting for one such as you, to pass my way….where wood and granite grow together as one….

Thank you.

”....and in the passing of my time, i found that from depth of within, there came the sound joy-full singing, and in this place of ‘wooded art’ was found the giving of thanks….”

Lord Bob, I wish they were only 2 hours….. About 12 hours yesterday. I need to walk with Frank for a couple of months….
