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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You call see through more photographers eyes at the weekly photo challenge ‘my world through my eyes’.
Refreshing blog, just like it’s name. And it is just beautiful.
You take my breath away …
Thanks Lynne….in a good way I hope 🙂
Of course. 🙂

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.
What a lovely comment, I’m imagining you fading into a green dot lost in the heart of nature. It’s always lovely to make someone smile 🙂
What a richly atmospheric piece. Nature does it so well.
Oh she does Mary, I couldn’t agree more 🙂
“Guide us back
into the peace
of the known…”
like a prayer for me,
(P.S.: you must know,
currently I’m far away from home,
600 miles from home…)
Well I’m so glad that I wrote the perfect post for you 🙂 where are you….somewhere to take lots of photos?
Ahhhhh, delicious words and images. Wonderful.
So happy you enjoyed…..your own photos are always so delicious . It’s so lovely to share 🙂

As always – your poetry of words and shots is just magical!
Thanks Fi, I do love a bit of word and image weaving, and it’s so lovely that there are others who enjoy the effect 🙂
I just read Rishal’s comment and OMG I almost said the same thing! And I hadn’t read the comments first. So strange!
That’s so funny Kellie, and I was barefoot when I took most of these photos….you must be psychic 🙂
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 🙂 Thanks for pointing him out….and now that I have seen him I can’t believe I didn’t notice him before!
Stunning images (as always), with my fave being the kick off your shoes and run sensation felt with the third one. Thoughtful poem
Kellie we were barefoot when I took that shot from Applecross beach!
I really love that second shot with the gathering clouds. Beautiful piece of work. 🙂
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 🙂

Beautiful words and photos! Thank you for sharing the world…
Very kind Amy, and its always a pleasure to share….makes life so much more fun 🙂
I like that wild Rowan path……. 🙂
Oh yes, the wild Rowan path leads to all sorts of adventures 🙂
Your photographs are so pleasing to the eye. I wish I could just kick my shoes off and run on the green fields 🙂
That’s often what I have done just before, or just after taking the photos….or else I’m lying on the grass on my belly to get a good angle 🙂
allways a dream…:-)))
Always delightful 🙂
Lovely. There’s nothing more to say.
beautiful as ever 🙂
i love the way shadows play on the fields and hills, the way the wind makes a meadow look like a luscious lake
It’s just mesmerising isn’t it? The elemental energies of wind and sunlight, revealing themselves for fleeting moments across the landscape. I get kind if swept up into the motion and energy, and lose myself for a while 🙂
and why not 🙂
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 🙂 Thanks as always for the lovely feedback.
