Antiqueness of Soul this place of early morning sitting, there is the light that burns deeply within my chest, gnawing at the walls of silent afterthought, those chatter boxes of resonating depth….

—-and so from this place of antiqueness of soul, i leave off the chaff of my form as left behind, shifting and ranging my spirit now walks the woods, blessed timber lined structures i love to hear and feel….

—-where you to ask from me my last breath, i would gladly give to thee my woods of ken, for you have fostered me after thine own way, and made me to understand the value of being upright….

—-i walk amongst you now and hear your words of praise, “he for whom the flesh holds no sway is walking this way”, and i am in awe by such words as you speak for one such as me, were you not here before and will you not be long after i have passed the way….

....and then there is the looking inside, looking inside my head and taking thought of where I go….yes just dreaming….but what beautiful dreams I am having as my imagination jumps ahead to what will yet be written on the walls of coming spring, as this my coming so springs into these of whom I await….

I had to post the last photo as ‘they say’ we are looking at some deep snow on the way and if so, well even so, this too will soon pass….

Have a good day!!!

as I read your words I slip out of this human form and feel myself surrounded, protected, guided by the Spirit of the Wood.

may your Spring put a spring in your step and let visions of insight and creative expression spring into your mind.
We long to see what words, pictures, and wood art we will be blessed with!

Or as the case may be, Autumn.

As I get older, I appreciate more the experience of one season morhping into the next. I see things that were alway there, but had never previously reached my consciousness. This causes me to pause and thank my Lord for giving me life and for each seasonal change I will yet behold.
