Horizon Haiku (Connected)

The earth meets the sky
A promise in the distance
We are connected

***
As we move toward the new year, I am learning to recognize the depth of my connections.

I am connected to God through His love and grace. I am connected to my family, and that includes my pets. I am connected to my friends, and that includes blogger buddies. I am connected to my co-workers. I am connected to my neighbors and community. I am connected to the human race, persons near and far, on earth and in heaven. I am connected to nature. I am connected to myself, including my physical senses, inner thoughts and emotions.

The surface connections are easy to see. It is the deeper layers of connection that are on my mind. How does it all work together? Can growing in appreciation of all these complex bonds make me more grounded, understanding, optimistic, peaceful, loving, and kind? Can it make me a better human, friend, sister, and child of God? I think it can. I believe it will.

Cee’s Compose Yourself Challenge- Horizontal Lines And Horizon

image

This scenic view has a strong horizon line where water meets the ridge. The mountains and skyline also draw the eye. This picture, and the ones below, are posted for Cee’s Compose Yourself photo Challenge: Week #6 Horizontal Lines and Horizons. Cee stresses the importance of straight horizons. I use the Straighten function on the Camera+ app when I need to straighten the lines of my photos. These photos were all taken with my iPhone 5s.

Extra credit: Multiple horizon lines in this duck pond picture include the water line against the shore and the ground to fence line by the trees. The line of geese and the top of the shelter also draw the eye.

Extra credit: multiple horizon lines in this landscape include the linear edge where the cut grass meets the green grass and the line where the land meets the mountain ridge. The row of taller grasses and the skyline also draw the eye.

Thanks to Cee for hosting these informative challenges!
