Wood Boggy Mind

….a bog in the wild,
two views of seeing book-marks,
wood-lands make stories
—by flp


Extra added wood morsels to chew upon….

Stories Taken From A WoodHermit of The North Country
—-excerpts from the story—-

….the highest form of praise man can ever utter,
is to step out of one’s own box forsaking clutter,
and receive the silence of healing away from time,
what one takes is a forgery and all one gives becomes art

….out here the woods become no-respecter of person,
and the woodsman becomes poet, seer and hunter,
in tune with nature so that what one is—is one with all,
if i fade away out here i am better off for leaving no-trace

....and in the end i am but a verse of words,
penned upon the wind that stretches beyond time,
my history passes away but my spirit abides,
self sufficiency is reduced to a state of ‘just is’

—by flp

Thank you.

Frank, Your artistic way with words and pictures all ways leaves me pondering. You have an insight that most do not. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

Frank, we are all much richer for the wisdom you have imparted to us, about being a part of nature, beauty, to listen to the silence of the woods and wood. What the wood is telling us it wants to become. To appreciate what all of us have. The freedom we have to explore nature and enjoy it’s beauty and wonder, we all owe so much to you my friend and I say that with profound gratitude. May the Lord Grant You His Blessings and Deliver You From All Evil In This Life or The Next. With Much Love and Appreciation, your humble friend, mike

Welcome back Frank, I am glad you made it back safely and hope you had a rejuvenating journey and that the mosquitoes weren’t too bad. That was an absolutely beautiful picture you took and I do believe that if you journeyed there you were filled with awe! Thanks for posting the picture.

Greetings to all; all who read, comment or just lurk here!

I have more pictures, some of which I will post here and some to the many other sites I also post on. The picture is from up in the northern part of the Adirondacks, (maybe a little north-east) but as I ended my day with this trip in, I was filled with a sense of all is well.

As I was telling a friend on an-other site….one picture is worth a thousand words, as I sat here to listen. I guess if I were to name this picture or a series of pictures like this one; I would call it//them ’Footprints Of God In The Wild
