Driving Force

Updated on March 6, 2012

ONWARD AND UPWARD

The beauty of the sky brings inspiration. These are pictures I took when I was able to.
The beauty of the sky brings inspiration. These are pictures I took when I was able to.

WHAT IS IT THAT INSPIRES US?

Ever changing is the ocean. Oh how beautiful nature can be at times. More inspiration.
Ever changing is the ocean. Oh how beautiful nature can be at times. More inspiration.

Driving Force

Eyes looking out into a great vastness,
Wondering thoughts prevailing like a sea ever changing.
As the sun begins to rise above the horizon.
Motion is noticed as a driving force spreading it's movement,
Yesterday becoming history locked in time for eternity,
we face the newness of another day beginning to speak to our
very inner being.
Let us tune into what creation is speaking to us quietly,
as we face the prevailing changes to come forth.
Watching diligently for purpose and explanation of things
we accept that each moment brings us understanding
of what is to be in the near future of all things.
Growth and stimulation oncoming without force,
and yet there is more to come, the future and all
of it's beauty, it's divinity, it's pain.
A spirit of anticipation and curiosity reaches toward
understanding, placing itself in the arena of acceptance.
Behold the driving force presents itself as progress takes
hold of time and uses it through the forward motion.

CALM BEFORE THE STORM

Photo was taken on the river 2 days before a really bad storm and the river rose 18 feet. It actually ran the wildlife out of the woods.
