Earth's inspiring beauty


Enjoying the beauty of Colorado’s West Slope on the occasion of my 70th birthday week, I was reminded of the e.e. cummings’ poem below to post along with pictures from the experience. 
 
 
 Writing becomes infinitely easier when inspired by the world within which we abide.
For Saturday’s Poem here is cummings’ tribute to the beauty of a day and the earth around us.
 

i thank You God for this most amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)
