Mostly photography, with the occasional philosophical contemplation

Experiental

6 Comments

Today i’ve wandered through the forest, seen and heard many birds.. came back home full of experiences and photographs

The interesting thing about all these experiences was that earlier today i was reading a book by Lama Tsongkhapa in which he describes how much we’re attached to our senses.. and indeed, in the forest i was constantly on the watch for sights and sounds. Perhaps that’s the downside for me of taking the camera with me. Or better said, it’s a lesson for me. First relax the mind, eyes and ears and then engage with the forest, connect with it without wanting to grasp at certain experiences (like seeing a kingfisher or a squirrel)

So today ended up being both rewarding in terms of photographs and in applying wisdom..

 

The Autumnal

The air is pregnant with a colorful vibe
Hibernating and emerging go side by side
The trees paint everything in bright colors
As they’re busy shedding their leavy skin
Meanwhile earth is filled with infinite veins
Invisible threads form a neural network
Leaves provide the power which it drains
On ground level many mushrooms thrive
Everything is recycled in the circle of life

Autumn

As the leaves fall, colors change in the forest
The trees will soon be empty of foliage
Quietly nature awaits the cold times ahead
Stillness fills the air like a grand orchestra

Dreamlands

Being on the other side as the magic slowly comes alive
Dream of lands full of mystical places long forgotten
Fairy tales escape from the minds of their creators
And find their dwelling in this land of in between
Playing on the land, in the water and flying through the sky
Nature performs her dance right in front of my very eyes
