Fall into my eyes

20130622-112933.jpg
Fall into my eyes if you wish to dream with me
If you wish to be pulled into the wild magic of earth
If you want to be swept into the deepest mysteries laid bare before us.

20130622-113444.jpg
The sand and the sea draw lines to lure us away
To draw us almost unnoticed towards the salt washed rocks
To pull our hearts and dreams to the watery isles of the otherworld.

20130622-113903.jpg
Ever westwards towards the mythic peaks of Skye
Whose mountains float between the waves and the clouds
Weaving a shimmering mirage to our yearning hearts.

20130622-114243.jpg
Or we can walk the wild Rowan path
Which draws us up and away from the waves into the deep mountains
Filling our heads with songs of fire and earth shaping giants, beneath gathering clouds.

20130622-114818.jpg
The storm clouds throw shadows across the earth
Whose fingers point in unison and shouting for attention
Turn us homewards before we fall too deeply into the earths spell.

20130622-115241.jpg
The soft safe curves of the fence
Decorated with daffodil cheers for our homecoming
Guide us back into the peace of the known, and the predictable.
Until the next time.

About greenmackenzie

Hi, I'm Seonaid, and I share my home with my husband, my son and a collection of cats and dogs. I am forever snapping shots of things which catch my eye. I love art which is here now and gone tomorrow...like food and nature...but also have a passion for vintage and the ancient past! Nature is my favourite muse, with her wild ever shifting seasons. I have been using and teaching mindfulness and relaxation for over 12 years, and have yet to become any sort of expert :-) I'm a Psychotherapist, and run the Maggies Highlands Cancer Centre, in Inverness, Scotland.

    I am always moved by your words and stuck somewhere as a green dot in your breathtaking pictures :). It is always a relief to see and read ’em – I am smiling by the time I am posting a comment.

    like a prayer for me,
    Seonaid!
    (P.S.: you must know,
    currently I’m far away from home,
    600 miles from home…)

  9. Ahhhhh, delicious words and images. Wonderful.

    As always – your poetry of words and shots is just magical!

  12. I just read Rishal’s comment and OMG I almost said the same thing! And I hadn’t read the comments first. So strange!

    The pictures are full of the nature in the places where you live and dream. The great expanses leave room for possibility. The great tree at the end of the fence in the last picture seems to have a face and life like the ‘Ents’ in ‘The lord of the rings.’ Peace!

    • You know I hadn’t even spotted that tree ent lurking at the end of the fence…..seems the magic followed us back home ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for pointing him out….and now that I have seen him I can’t believe I didn’t notice him before!

  14. Stunning images (as always), with my fave being the kick off your shoes and run sensation felt with the third one. Thoughtful poem

  15. restlessjo says:

    I really love that second shot with the gathering clouds. Beautiful piece of work. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thanks Jo, those clouds are really eye catching …..I can go back and look at them time after time….they are so full of structure and energy. Great drama for the camera ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beautiful words and photos! Thank you for sharing the world…

  18. Lisa says:

    I like that wild Rowan path……. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Rishal says:

    Your photographs are so pleasing to the eye. I wish I could just kick my shoes off and run on the green fields ๐Ÿ™‚

  20. ginnietom says:

    allways a dream…:-)))

  21. Lovely. There’s nothing more to say.

  22. beautiful as ever ๐Ÿ™‚
    i love the way shadows play on the fields and hills, the way the wind makes a meadow look like a luscious lake

  23. Nice. Beautifully woven images and words. I think I have mentioned before that your work soothes me. This morning I am especially convinced that if you had put a blood pressure cuff and monitored me as I read your post you would have seen a significant drop in my blood pressure. Why is it that your work has that influence on me? Weird. Wonderful. Thanks. D

    • Thats so lovely to hear David, and it must mean that I’m transmitting exactly what I intend through the imagery and words…a sense of being a little more still so that we can be more aware of each precious moment of our lives. Slowing down to see beneath the surface into deeper mystery which is our world ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks as always for the lovely feedback.

Let me know your thoughts on my post...I love feedback :-)
