The heavens are opened, shaken,
stirred, pressed down, overflowing
with blessings. Sight: the sky is a
perfect stretch of blue. Hearing:
happy songs of mockingbird and
cardinal fill ears full. Touch: air
cool, with low humidities. Smell:
Spring scents nose with delicate
perfume. Taste: the love of God is
sweet. Have breath in my lungs;
can walk, talk, think. The simple
things, what more? OverWhelmed.

|Sometimes it is pretty overwhelming when I consider all that I truly have been blessed with...
|Reviewed by Mary Coe
|Beautiful picture and poem.|
|Reviewed by Jon Willey
|Though we are little, exquisite pieces of nature. It continuously overwhelms our psyches with beauty and power unmatched. Most people overlook nature and never truly appreciate and enjoy all that it continuously offers us. Your poem shows you have the wisdom to reel in nature's unrivaled beauty.|
|Reviewed by Michael Guy
|I'm biased to anyone who takes cloud and sky photos, I used to back in the 80's but I'm leaving that dept. to you now! And what an "open sky" message. Your photo work must've brought on a personal and religious conversion back in 2006 (a lot of c. for that year)
I look this well-developed short-block style of yours - well crafted lines...
|Reviewed by Sandie May Angel-Joyce
|What a spectacular photo.!!!
You are not only a great poetess!!!
You are also a wonderful photographer!!!
Sandie May :o)

|...the air of inspiration...a breath of blue...are found in your shared beauty of life.
well done Karla...
|Reviewed by Larry Lounsbury
|Your poem goes well with those cloudy wings. Enjoyed|
|Reviewed by Flying Fox Ted L Glines
|Simply love the "wing" in the pic. My Yacqi ancesters certainly would have danced and rattled and done something (good, I hope) because of it. Wish I could have been there. Ummm, maybe I was.
Swami Tedders sees a book, each page with a pic & poem, in your future.
|Reviewed by Karen Palumbo
|Very well said, feelings many share....
Be always safe,

|I see the wings of Pegasus or perhaps an angel in this photo--wow|
|Reviewed by Sanja Dayslink
|I love the way that you captured the things in life that we most often take for granted. Thank you for sharing.
|Reviewed by Bernice Angoh

|And when in peace, the air you breath will carry the softeness of feathers wear by angels.
|Reviewed by Mr. Ed
|The simple things in life, and Spring;
Such loveliness and joy, they truly bring!
|Reviewed by Charlie
|I like this. I think it'd be stronger without the "So grateful" and "lovely morning" lines though... just skipping that and ending with "OverWhelmed" leaves me with a place to put those feelings-- what do you think? I do love that last word... especially after talking about the sky overhead. --Charlie|
