When Fern and Spirits Intersect

(I wonder why hiking never tear me down, but has me murmuring instead).


Episode 1

A reincarnation is in embryo while taking in the essence of morning light. The fern is unfolding. There will not be any shaking of the Earth, or cracking of the sky.

Tokun Hill will be as quiet as now. Reincarnation is a silent simplicity that happens now and then.

What can I see through the center of the "coil of fortune"?


Episode 2

Are the silky threads holding the fern, or is the fern providing the webs a foot-hold?

We are not Independent, somehow or other.

The silky threads move in unison with the fern to decide its fate.

I'll try not to read into anything (lol)..pretty tired after a long trip around the island. Your ferns are exotic looking..something we have in common. We murmur (I catch myself as well)-and webs are spun like tales..if we could remember,maybe we could break the cycle..

The "coil of fortune" is providing a place for the spider to have a life..Beautiful shots, Rainfield..

I just love that kind of fern... as you do. But we don't have that one here. Your interpretation is perfect, as always.

great mind, great thoughts, great eye, all go together with you. yes, we are not independent, everything is inter-related and that adds more meaning to our lives.

Fern coils remind me of sea horses...I dunno why

I always love your fern photos... why can't I take something like that. I tried but mine are not as perfect as yours. And your words are amazing too.

I guess it is the fern providing the webs a foot-hold...

Anyway, love the meaning and spirit behind the post...:-)

Go to a banana tree, lots of spirits there, Go not in the morning , but at night. OuOuOuOu!!!!!!

And the spider sprit will entrap you with sticky thread.

Your second photo is absolutely stunning. You pose an interesting question, but regardless of the answer it is obvious we all need each other.

Ratty said...

Your pictures look like great art this time. And your words match them well.
