The Monkey and the Pelican
(Actual Knotting in a tree I passed)
The Wonder of Nature... Makes you Wonder
We often walk around in life with heads down, mind ablaze with insignificant stuffola and we miss the nuances, trickery, fun and wonder of that around us that Nature presents.
You can find great works of Art, Fun Imagery and Thought Provoking visualizations in so many natural objects. For example the colored veins in Marble, the sculptures embedded in the Clouds (this is where most find their natural imagery) and all around us each day... yet sadly we miss them.
The Monkey and the Pelican brought to mind the camaraderie that two creatures of different existences can share. It is as the Pelican is sharing a great secret with the ever curious monkey, temporarily entranced and seriously attentive to the tale being spun by the new friend.
The Caged Lion
The knotting seen in a footpath plank at Green Cay Wetlands, Boynton Beach Florida
I was out walking through this fun Bird Sanctuary that has many kinds of Cranes and Other Birds of the area, along with Turtles, Alligators, Snakes, etc.. As I was walking along the elevated walking path over the wetland area, I happened to look down and saw the Lion.
This Lion brought such vivid images and emotions to mind and soul... I see it as a sad lion, the spirit stripped away from the confining cage it is forever embedded in. This in turn brought to mind the many souls in life feeling and trapped in that same mindset and void of spirit.
This post was prompted by this real Eggplant
My wife and I were just out to dinner last night with friends who have a great garden at their home. Occasionally they bring us fresh picked vegetables (grown as he says as close to organic as he can grow"). We all laughed so hard when we saw the Pinocchio face, hat and nose... that we had several people from other tables in on the laughing and conversation. They came over and we passed the eggplant around as all wanted to see it up close to make sure it was real!
Who does not remember the wooden puppet that comes to life as Pinocchio... with pointed hat and protruding nose. It brought to mind the current awakening of the people from the lies that are becoming so evident... almost like the noses of the lying politicians, bankers, elite growing right before our eyes. They all were skeptical, and wanted to see for themselves... all strangers with a brief sense of community if just for a moment in time... these days I think are happening now and growing in frequency each day...
Like right here on Steemit.
Have faith folks, Nature has a way of bringing us back to the reality of life. Let your imaginations be free to accept it.
