return to forever


when i return to forever
may the circle be closed
and the spiral be broader

words excerpted from "forever oneness" by bee lake

I love this prayer. Your photo is marvellous and enhances it utterly. Lovely, Steven. I love your bannerhead as well. Just magnificent. I have been in Santa Fe N.M. for a while and just back. Lots of photos of leaves for my blog too. Thanks for this.

That one brought to mind a "Natural cauldron" not of toil and trouble but of exactly the poem you chose. Nice one!

You should consider putting together a book of your nature photos, Steven.

Your recent excerpts from Mary Oliver are refreshing...she is one of my favorite poets. Lives in Provence Town, Mass, I believe.

Steven, that photo is so beautiful, as are the words you have chosen. Perfect pairing.
That photo would be incredible framed!

Such perfect autumnal thoughts today and yesterday, Steven. I'm on retreat in a beautiful place, listening to the rustling leaves, watching them float and drift down.

We are IN "forever" - right now!

It is always so restful coming to your blog, steven.

I'm going to meditate on this, Steven. Especially on the spiral image.

Intoxicating color, a moss and leaf mandala, and then, of course, the spiraling words....!

I love the phrase "return to forever" - it really captures the great beyond.
