Finding Food #1LinerWednesday

“Hey, a guy’s gotta’ eat!”

During the time we lived in Costa Rica, I had the opportunity to observe and photograph so many beautiful and interesting animals and insects. During our own Spring here in the US, they are going through the hot, humid season that precedes the rainy months in CR, when things are washed down and made ready for the renewal that comes for them during our cold Winter months. During this hot time the natural fruits and vegetation that many of the animals feed on becomes very sparse. They get really resourceful in order to survive. This Capuchin monkey was using a piece of bark shredded from a cut tree to dig around inside for the termite delicacy he dined on. A lot of work for a small reward. We could learn a lot by looking more closely at this world’s original inahbitants.

He’s Baaack… #1LinerWed

“Things are coming along nicely, Camera Lady. I see you have added more herbs and some color to your garden. I love it. I could swear we have met before…”

Little Green hung around and talked with me, or should I say he listened to me talk, for quite some time with keen interest. He even allowed me to get a few closeups of him before scurrying away. I look forward to tomorrow when he might return.

So, I can’t add any more photos. Apparently WordPress is trying to force me into Premium mode so I may not be back at all. If that is the case I will also be cancelling my regular site at tropicalaffair.me. I don’t like the service or the new tactics of this web system lately.

I hope you all have a great rest of your week. I’l be out there somewhere…..

I Am Not

invisible

insignificant

impudent

ignorant…

 

 

Fading..

falling

failing

flailing

against the current..

 

97162D9D-B1CC-45C0-A23E-E5CC2CE906B7.png

clinging..

clawing

crying

to the darkness…

8B0C0278-BBD3-48F5-844C-0A7FAD8C1723

     you win!

The light within

slowly dies,

not by the sword

 

C5DF2329-B002-4E2F-A1A8-F1453266AC62

 

but the word..

so many words-

cruel

careless

cold

callously bold.

 

beware!

This life

so fragile

fickle

fleeting…

ephemeral beauty

in hand

so quickly slips away…

 

81ADEF46-CE44-49B5-9503-2FFAF06FB813

as a child’s blown bubble,

lost on the winds

of desperation..

salvation

for the weary

bleary

teary eyed dreamer.

we seldom recognize magnificence until it is gone..

 

we are not forever in this dream,

nightmare

illusion

confusion

of the soul.

Will you say you know me

DA6D6182-8665-4EB9-BF3A-C5D4F433CC3D

on the far side of eternity?

 

Will you even recognize my face

in that strange, exotic place

of forgotten sorrows?

I wonder….

 

 

I am the piece that

doesn’t fit

the square peg

in a sea of round

holes.

I shall not forget,

never regret

that we met-

once more.

What Dream, This Life..

A blink…

70AE2510-E226-4604-A549-DCC4D611FFC7.gif

A flash…

a whisper…

E60CAE1F-BED8-4831-B4F1-1BA2BE7C2A7D

A wink.

A breath..

CD40BB84-281B-4421-A677-2C27409419AE

A sigh…

1D615C16-883F-432D-A084-4882BCD43AA4

In the twinkle of an eye..

 

 

As softly passing by,

 

 

Life nods and grins

8AA81DD9-6BF0-4E66-AE85-5E53503C2961

at the child within

 

 

our eager souls.

repeat.

rewind.

Of like

and kind

we circle back on all

we thought we learned and knew-

so bound by emotion,

our devotion to the dream

reigns supreme before all

options-

may the odds be

ever in our favor..

 

 

as we savor

sweet surrender

to the bonds so

warm and tender-

silken chains,

we are engrossed

in the stories that we write

 

 

with blood and tears about

this so called Life.

 

A scream,

a heartbeat,

a giggle,

a moan

and the flutter of wings

will carry us home…

Be Confident!

As if the world isn’t already in frightening, full tilt, yet another gorgeous Supermoon arrives to nudge the sleeping lunatics…

D68712BB-D9F6-4D8E-9348-A036F26AF5AE

She winks sleepily and you smile,

she seems so sultry, mysterious…

2221EF16-07E4-4189-9828-5F1F9C6FBB8F

Hiding behind the veil of her Daughter’s world,

shyly she teases your senses…

C8D1E937-5E83-4C19-AC66-626029FF0C0A

You watch, mesmerized, as she

slips into view, breathlessly anticipating

her full magnificence.

But….

 

Beware! 89F061BB-385D-4DA3-9FCB-0A32DA867431

Her powers are ancient and most are overwhelmed by them.

Be confident! Walk on…or run!
