Where Magic lives - go with the flow

The earth is waking up fast, spring has arrived.  Only 2 weeks ago a blanket of deep snow was hiding everything from view, now rushing water is tumbling over the rocks. Cool air embraces me as I walk down the slopes to re-visit this place of magic (see my post from October 2011). I wonder how the remaining year will unfold.... I let my worries, fears and anticipations wash away with the torrents of water. 
Go with the flow and enjoy the ride!!

SEEING BEAUTY - Photography as visual poetry, part 10

In many of his poems Hafiz invites us to dance, to celebrate, to love. 
For me it is a joy and happiness and peace from deep inside, often times for no apparent reason. 
Today is such a day - the sun coming through the window casting rainbows on my walls, birds are singing, a purring cat on my lap.... gratitude is filling my heart.

From my book "Seeing Beauty - photography as visual poetry", available at  or by contacting me direct.

Has known God, 
Not the God of names, 
Not the God of don'ts, 
Not the God who ever does 
Anything weird, 
But the God who only knows four words 
And keeps repeating them, saying: 
"Come dance with Me."
