Spirit forms in the mist
tumbling and rolling and splashing
gushing while blushing
rushing madly over the rough spots
waywardly maneuvering Her force-filled will
chasing mirrored reflections
passed present and future moments
cascading drops of life ~ flow as one wetness
touching all — despising none
perfectly tranquil in Her going forth
She smooths the world with blissfulness
~ soothing all who eye Her beauty ~
(gracing hearts too soft to see)
Peace, luvz, and hugz! Uncle Tree
A special “Thanks!” to Amy for sharing her photography!
Thank you, young lady! 🙂
🙂 Thank you, Em!

I’m no stranger to The Doors. We are Riders On The Storms.
Take care, be good, and stay cool ~ in harmony, my friend! 🙂
Oh, wow!! 🙂 This is pure loveliness!! 🙂 Beautiful!! 🙂
Thank you truly, Trini! 🙂 Glad you liked Her!
So glad to see a post from you and a beautiful one it was. Wonderful interchange between word and image!
Thank you so much, Ellen! 🙂 Amy is a joy to work with.
OH Keith !!!! I am speechless. In tears. Moved beyond word. How you put word to vision is a glorious Gift to behold! I am so grateful to you, for giving justice to the Gifts Mother gives me. What a surprise indeed you have given to me! Bless you, Uncle Tree, for the honor towards me and for giving Mother such glorious words. I shall be reading this over and over again. You really touched me deeply this day. (((HUGS))) Amy
YEAH!!! She likes it! 🙂 The effort well-justified.
It’s an honor to have your art gracing the place like wallflowers,
with drenching showers plummeting down and freshening up the whole.
I’m glad I wasn’t shy about asking you to share with us.
I truly appreciate your faith and trust in Uncle Tree and me.
Have a super-fine day! ❤ Luvz and hugz, Keith
This was stunning!
🙂 Thank you kindly, DiAnne! ❤ That's a swell compliment! 🙂
Wonderful heart-felt photography….and lovely boundless words from you. Lovely post 🙂
Reblogged this on Cassie & Sophie NSFW and commented:
The best poetry can be read, understood and felt by different minds and souls in different ways. Amy’s photography is great too.
Happy to hear from you, Seonaid! 🙂 Amy and I thank you very much!
I’m so excited!!! Two of my favorite people come together in such beautifully stunning art…photos and prose….WOW!
Keith, I’d say this is the magic I was talking about…you will receive more because of what you gave to us 🙂
Your lines, “chasing mirrored reflections
Passed present and future moments” are super…it’s all super!! Thank you for this beauty ….I feel so touched by you both!!!
That is a super-fine compliment, Lorrie! 🙂 So glad you like
our magical collaboration of color, thoughts, and luvz. ❤
Thanks for letting us know how you felt, and how you feel,
and which line pulled you into the waters. 😉 Cheerz, Keith
Beautiful words and picture.. What a nice way to start a Saturday 🙂
My faith in Uncle Tree and you is Absolute. No questions. No doubt. I carry you in my Heart and think upon this Gift you have given many, as I ride my bike this day. Luvz and hugz, Amy
Glad to be of service, kind sir. 🙂 Thank you for the compliment!
I pray the good times roll you into beautiful spaces today, Amy. 🙂
Be happy, go lucky! Stay safe, sweet and sound, my fair LadyP. ❤
I did not plan, nor did I see, but today, I have begun my street photography. “A Day in the Park”. The highlight will be, a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. And a few other surprises. It was as though God saw where I was heading, and lined these goodies up just for me. When you see the post, keep in mind, what I do say now. Just wow! LOL xx sis
Moving On? 😉 How delightful!
I look forward to seeing your goodies.
Keep following your passion, sista rose!
🙂 Thank you kindly, Nanci! Nice to meet you! Cheerz, Uncle Tree
Disappointment is tandamount. Some photos blurred due to my nervousness? Don’t know. Yet, because I told the 50th wedding anniversary couple I would be posting tomorrow, I am! A promise is a promise. Yep, moving on, yet needs much to learn. I like my flowers. (smile) BUT!!! I really enjoyed myself today interacting with so many different peeps. Kewl! Movin’ on, bro of mine! (((HUGS))) xx
Very awesome read and thanks for the follow..
Lovely photos and words. I liked how you transitioned from the waterfall to the flowers with simplicity and elegance!
Thank you kindly, Jan! 🙂 So glad you liked this.
The rather abrupt change in scenery worked out well?
Good! Then, I also thank you for confirming my speculation.
Amy’s famous for her flower pics, and my soul felt compelled
to somehow figure in this especially pink rose, which
represents her joyful countenance perfectly.
I really like how you go from a wild torrent to falls to gentle trickles to a flower. Nice.
Just like a woman, eh? 😉 Thank you, my friend!
Charming combination of words and photographs. 🙂
🙂 Thank you, Margaret! Glad you think so.
nice … i enjoyed reading it … love the reference to ”Her”. i think the female gender extends way beyond the earth. ks
I tend to agree with that engendering assessment, ks. 🙂
Thank you so much for commenting! Glad you enjoyed the show.
Oh my goodness, such peace…Water/Nature is such a joy to behold. I really enjoyed this masterpiece Keith. Also, Beautiful photographs!!! They compliment your work well. 😄
Also, I wanted to say, Amy, very talented, took some very lovely photographs. 😄
🙂 Yeah! I’m so glad you liked our collaboration, Alisha!
I though my place could use a little prettying up. He-he.
Thank you for the wonderful compliment! Take care. ❤ Hugz, Keith
Lol, Yes I did!!! Just Beautiful. Also, you are so welcome Keith!!! Big Hug 😄
Thank you! 🙂
I almost missed this one! What beautiful cascades and perfect roses. I love it when you say:
“…chasing mirrored reflections
passed present and future moments
cascading drops of life ~ flow as one wetness”
It reminds me of the notion of the “ego” or “self” in Buddhism. It doesn’t exist! It’s like water from a cascade running constantly, never the same, past and future moments….
Yes! 🙂 You get the idea, Maria. The river remains the river,
while its constituents are forever changing right before our eyes.
Happy are we to know you liked this. Thank you kindly, dear lady!
These waterfall photos are tremendous, and I loved the verse, as well. Was especially touched by the last lines: soothing all who eye her beauty, gracing hearts too soft to see. Lovely!!
the falls are so beautiful!!
Thank you so much, Amy! 🙂 So glad you liked this wet one!
The last line came late, but I thought it fit the theme well,
so I added it in with a rose. The bit of mystic in me…
I think they are, too. 🙂 Thank you kindly, Iris!
Uncle Tree, I come back to thee, reading verse, meditating to see the grand scheme behind the words. How all is ONE and Spirit is Divinity Divine Femine in all Her Glory. She tumbles and she rumbles ever turning, yet remaining in the Eternal, ever unchanging, yet expanding. Your words stir deeply in my being, reminding me we are Eternal, flowing in Pure Wetness, Water, Sacred, Life. The Cycle of Life is in the NOW, past, present, future all entwined. How you get me to think, feel, speak. Bless you, bro. This post stirs me deeply, oh so deeply. The Waters rumble within, gushing forth for all to know. I’m shaking …..
Dear Amy, thank you for the reassurance. I needed it — right now.
Robin Williams committed suicide today, and I beside myself.
Many tears for the funny guy, my favorite comedian since
Jerry Lewis. Funny guys aren’t supposed to do that. Damn it!
After he meets Jesus, he’s gonna have a crowd of angels
around him laughing their asses off. I can see it now. Holy smokes! ❤
OMG, Keith! Noooooooooo! He is one of MY favorite funny guys! I did not know! I’ve been crying ALL day long today just feelins SO sad, and now I know why! I am crying. Shaking. In shock. Not Robin Williams! He made SO many people laugh, and you are right, darn it! He is gonna meet the Angels, and he and Jesus are gonna hang out cracking jokes. This is just too much to take in. I think I have every single movie he starred in. Keith, I LOVED that man. All I had to do was see his face and mine would immediately smile. Oh Lord, what is this world gonna do with Robin in it? It’s a plus for Heaven! Here? It’s been SO heavy lately and now this …. Sending you HUGE ((HUSGS))), wet ones at that. I just can’t belive this ….. And here I wrote today a post having to do with the Cycle of Life. NEW LIFE. So what seems like death is not. It is just Fate’s Ground in which New Life does crown!
August 11, 2001, was one of the most memorable days of my life.
I’ll never forget what happened that night. I sorta celebrate
and take it all back in; regarding the Perseid’s annual meteor shower.
Now, along with that memory, I’ll have my tag-a-long comedian
keeping me from taking myself too seriously. Not now,
but you can check out what I mean by reading this sometime:
Your previous comment — so enduring — is exactly what
we need to remember right now. Keep the faith, sis. Hugz! 🙂
I read it quickly tonight, Keith, but I want to again tomorrow when I have more time and am refreshed. Am pooped from all the crying. I know how much this post means to you and I promise to not let you down. I shall read it properly. xx sis
Wow! This is beautiful! Being a nature person myself, I love poems about nature 🙂 The photography is amazing as well!
We’re glad you like this, NJ. 🙂 Thank you so very much! UT
Beautiful and moving. Thank youQ
What beautiful waterfall imagery….I was swept away by your water fairies and their beautiful domain 🙂
Thank you, Carole! 🙂
Amy and I thank you, Seonaid! 🙂 These pics swept me away, too.
But I did hold my ground until Momma Nature spilled her beans.
Then I gave in, and only these words were left behind.
Very nice i like it is beautiful
You like AND love. Fantastic! 🙂 Thank you doubly!
Beautiful poem, Keith, for such stunning photos. A lesson swimming in there somewhere, too. Peace and Luvz 😉 WG
All of your images are amazing! Creative presentations, wonderfully thoughtful and eye-catching perspectives…simply BEAUTIFUL!!! A feast for the eyes and senses! Love & Blessings – liz
Thank you kindly, double-u-gee! 🙂 I’m up to my neck in luvz, yes.
That is a sweetly superb compliment, liz.
From the bottom of the stream to the highest 🙂
bubbly tops, we thank you esplashially!
The poetry is such an amazing compliment–my senses went on overload going through your postings–I am going to come back and visit later to savor and enjoy! Thank you, love, peace and blessings to you, liz
;0 Hope the luvz keeps on creepin up to the brain- the seat of amour 4 shore
Lovely and beautiful post dear Keith… Always a pleasure to drop by… I hope you have a great weekend,
Nice to meet you, liz. Thanks again! 🙂
Have a great weekend! Cheerz, UT
Feel free to drop by anytime, Amalia. For drop by drop
the pleasure must and will increase, as the waters wash on by.
Thank you, goddess lady! 🙂 I pray your weekend rocks ~ Peace, UT
As always, you’re smoothing the world with blissfulness. My morning is better for the visit.
Thank you, George! 🙂 Have a great weekend!
Beautiful mixture of word and image. Good one Uncle Tree!
Amy and I thank you, Claire! 🙂 We’re very glad you liked this!
I would have left too, as did Robin, knowing what was ahead of him. It is too much to bear, the inability to move at will, think at his normal speed, work hard and function. It is a disease with no mercy. At least he chose his own …….. and I’m sure the Cosmic Consciousness welcomed him back into the Ocean with a sigh and a chuckle.
I hope you’re right, Rachael. Do have a great Sunday now. Hugz, UT
I love that second waterfall photo!
Glad you liked, Elisa. 🙂 Thank you so much!
You have a wonderful blog, Uncle Tree–photos and poems!
It is mesmerising to watch the flowing water. You poetry perfectly reflects the experience.
Thank you very much, Victoria! 🙂 So glad you enjoyed your visit.
Amy and I thank you kindly, Inese! 🙂 As an Aquarian, I can easily agree.
Loved this! Very beautiful 🙂 I particularly liked the line “gushing while blushing”. Hope your day is going well
Yes, that’s right. Even The Queen, when complimented,
can rarely keep herself from flushing rosy pink in public. 🙂
Glad you liked this! Amy and I thank you deeply! Well is good.
A magical collaboration Uncle Tree and Amy… beautiful words and photos!
Thank you much, Caroline! 🙂 Glad you liked this one.
Nice to meet you! Peace and luvz, Uncle Tree
Amy and I thank you, Theresa! 🙂 We’re happy to hear you liked.
A sizzling hot compliment! 🙂 Thank you kindly, Caroline!
Incredible poem (and inspiration with the photos), make an incredible post ~ this is a brilliant collaboration. The line “touching all — despising none” is how one should feel. Cheers.
That is high praise and a fine compliment, Randall.
Amy and I are are delighted to know you enjoyed it. 🙂
From the trickle at the top to the bottom non-stop drops,
we thank you earnestly, and hope your day flows gladly!
Marvelous! I have been feeling the call of waterfalls all year!! Now, I must set a date!
Love & Light to you!
Yes! Do heed the waterfall call, Shurica!
You’ll make a big splash when you get there. 🙂
Glad you liked this. Amy and I thank you!

Same hopes for you, my friend! 🙂

Pretty sights and sounds, ma’am. Do you know which forest this is?
Joanne Shenandoah is Mohegan, so I suspect NE, USA Woodlands.
Okay. Thank you! 🙂 Have a great Monday!
You as well. 🙂
so beautifully written and awefully reflected the moods with the photos……
Amy and I are glad you enjoyed this. 🙂 Thank you very much! Uncle Tree
