Experience The Moment…

Grand Canyon at Sunset, my collection.

Grand Canyon at Sunset, my collection.

Look with your eyes,
Not through lens alone.
Photographing memories,
Your meant to experience and know.

Excitement manifests itself,
In focuses, zooms and clicks.
All the while you record the moments,
You will actually miss…

God did all the work…

Image

I’ve decided to start sharing some of my very amateur photography favorites. Enjoy!

I see God…

In a sunset, fiery red and orange,

Or the perfection of a child newly born.

In the colorful array of a peacocks’ plumes,

Or the simplistic beauty of wild daisies in bloom.

In the delicate dance of the butterfly,

Or the majestic eagle ascending a deep cobalt sky.

I see God…

 

In the laughter-induced smiles of children at play,

Or the fresh smell of newly fallen rain.

In a rose’s velvet touch and perfumed scent,

Or the compassion and kindness of a loving friend.

In the cool flowing waters that tail winters’ frost,

Or the gift of hope when once all was lost.

I see God…

 

In the autumn leaves blanketing the hillsides,

Or the tearful hellos after long good-byes.

In the serendipitous moment of epiphany,

Or loves’ role in the quickening heartbeat.

In the cool breeze upon a contemplative face,

Or the expansive glory of outer space.

I see God…

 

In a rainbow’s appearance after a storm,

Or strength gained from trials overcome.

In the melodic hymns sung by the birds,

Or the gathering together of gifted words.

In the mountain silhouettes accompanying dawn or setting sun,

Or the flowering cactus among the dry beige and barren.

I see God…

 

I could fill endless pages with the beauty that is He,

Amidst antagonistic scribed evidence of dark negativity.

Pain and fear are played like anthems in this world,

The lines of good and evil get blurred.

Accepting the blindfolds offered by darkness,

Keeps us from the amazing; joy and renewal are missed.

If we seek, on purpose, the inspiring wonder,

Evidence of God’s goodness will be discovered.

Aside

Image

Fade into the silhouette
A picture in a frame
A beautiful darkness
Defined curves untamed

Cut out from that which surrounds
Connected individuality
Light caught in play
Creating new imagery

A soft embrace
A lovers kiss
Set upon a backdrop
Of  sunset’s fiery bliss

Shielded in shadows
Skillfully exposed
A moment immortalized
Among an endless warm glow…
