Photograph taken by, Theresa Koch

Terminating or dismissing the sun
I sit down with pen in hand
Melting into the natural landscape
My poem has now began

Words spill out on paper what
Sets before my third eyes view
That is what Iíll talk about
That is what I now share with you

Energy around me electrical to feel
Makes me close my eyes
Making my heart feel more surreal
Why the muse takes over me

Then all around grows dim
Pen on the paper flies
Natures done its job again
Then pick up my camera

And take a picture of the view
Looking down at what I wrote
To take this home and give it to you
Thatís the way I write it seems

My muse within the earth
Thatís the way my poems begin
The way my photos give birth
Drawing from GODS creation

My inspiration starts
Watching Mother Nature
Then talking about their
Beautifully done art

We are treated to the most elaborate sensual and cerebral feasts every minute of every day when we look at the natural world around us - for free!! Thank you for this reminder NOT to take this for granted - even if it is priceless yet without cost. Beautiful sentiments and photograph. TY Kate xx

The most vivid stanzas were the poems "front and back gates" (i.e. first and final stanzas.) "Dismiss the sun" shows that we can command the attitude we have in any moment, just as we can call the sun forth in our minds when clouds envelope our lives with trials.

I appreciated your sharing this Theresa,
blessin's and happy holiday times to you,
