Rips in Something Greater

The Hourglass

A kind of truth daubed and clung, full mind eclipse,
Rips in something greater.

Exotic glimpses into raging symmetry,
A fully conscious blink.

Emptied of immensity and feeling,
Invisible numbers inhabit boundless desires.

Vision unparalleled through the mystic lens,
All wrapped up snugly in the gifts of a cosmic mentor.

Clear Sky

I imagine

Greater changes,

Creativity spirals

Without control,

The universe reflects

Something of nothing,

As we play with

Our infinite potential.



Our collective memory is a

Shared greatness;

No action inert,

No form is lifeless,

When the eyes of the unseen

Are seen.


The known is rising

And falling,

Insight lights

Darkened corners.

So subtle the energy

Passing through,

A divine dialogue ignites

With deeper intent,

Drunk on intuition

Colluding with silent speculation,

Form means

Emptiness profound.


Over my thoughts

Creation lingers,

Evolution clings

To wisdom re-inacted,


The actor falls silent

As the selfish idea

Is susceptible to a wandering nature

Embedded in flux,

Freed now to drive

In clear skies.

Initiate great universes……………Overlapping without care……….Not one drop wasted……………Rivers turn to the seas……….A fire inside………A seed……..Time inside time…….Diffuse the curtain……Crackle and spark……..Red aurora sting my eyes……..The children catch our tears…….

Tears of joy………….Over fearless earth steaming……….Ebbing form aflame………Raw earth…………..Mother earth………Beauty tree……….Let me in……Quiet arcs……Eclipse the aureole…………Leave smoke in lovely postures……..Bathed in yellow fire sky……

Visions Beyond the Seen

How rare these airs that we breath!  

Corollas fill the earthly skies,  

Breathing in light, into light itself, breeding life into 

The cosmic centre, 

Alive within the heart of all things.  


How solid our nature, how little we ‘feel’, 

How complex our stupidity, when all forms are freed.  

How crippled our senses before something so vast, 

To find that we are the creator evolving through ash.  


The moon leaves our chest and we trip on the stars, 

Our higher nature speaks of a dance

With a distant mirage, 

Through cosmic fires and ethereal shadows 

We are destiny engaged, emerging from the dark. 


I incarnate as this ornament, this thick gaseous cluster,

Alone to wonder at the mystery. 

My primeval shape returns in a dream 

And in the tones of my soul, I ascend to a calmer sea, 

With the trailing paths of fireflies

And visions beyond the seen,

Proceeding between sun and moon,

A balance supreme.


My senses brushed with light

My soul aflame, guided by the lamp

Of the illumined archer, his arrows fall blindly 

Upon the fools in the temple,


I wade through this water,

Fall through this picture,

Towards the symbols of the seer

In this mighty work of art,

Greater clarity ever near,

Spinning in eternal bliss,

Emerging as an open flower 

In the tumult of the glittering abyss.


Beyond my imagination, I sense Isis

And need go no further.

Desert Sweeper

A desert sweeper steps
Towards an eyes crossed trance,
Fixed tight as a bracket would
To the maps in stars.
The steam and hiss of the bliss oblivion train
All white robes and fragrant teas,
Sought desire and no release.

In matrix modes
The gristle grinds down
In the makers gum tree eye,
Divided by a furnace of great feeling,
Just a dot of universe
On the tip of your tongue, like a pill.

Call out wounded hopes
And prayers and faith and all that makes us stick,
Wound up again
Upon the manacle of mind games
And barnacle brain strains,

Where once we walked like lions on this land.

As the white vultures circle
The palace walls fall in
The crumbling of ages past
Orange rock melts in a millennium of fertile sea beds
And the flint axe still sparks with time fragments.

A one winged wanderer
Setting a course to the speaking night,
Stars only
Express such delight in form
And the sleeping men and crocodiles
In the hills and dry river beds
Can only sing a line.

Images of beautiful earth from space

Every time I look out the window and see our beautiful planet, my soul sings! I see blue skies, white clouds and bright blessed day.”  
NASA astronaut Douglas Wheelock who is currently aboard the International Space Station shares pictures of the Earth he snaps with the world through Twitter.
Known to his nearly 68,000 Twitter followers as Astro_Wheels, Wheelock has been posting impressive photos of the Earth and some of his thoughts ever since he moved into the space station in June, five months after it got Internet access. 
What a beautiful rock we live on.

Greek islands on a clear night during our flight over Europe .. Athens shine brightly along the Mediterranean Sea .

” Mystery Island ” – located in the Indian Ocean close to Madagascar .. Interesting features on the island and the unusual shape should be enough to help you discover this beautiful place.

Northern lights in the distance in one of the finest nights over Europe … The photo clearly shows the Strait of Dover. Paris is dazzling with the city lights.
A little fog over the western part of England , particularly over London ..

The moon is breathtaking.

Of all the places of our beautiful planet few can rival the beauty and richness of colors in the Bahamas .. In this photo, our ship is seen against the backdrop
of the Bahamas.

At a speed of 28,163 kilometres per hour (8 kilometres per second), we rotate the Earth’s orbit, making one revolution every 90 minutes, and watch sunsets
and sunrises every 45 minutes. So half of our journey is in darkness. For the work we use lights on our helmets.

Every time I look out the window and see our beautiful planet, my soul sings! I see blue skies, white clouds and bright blessed day.

Another spectacular sunset. We see 16 such sunsets
each day, and each of them is really valuable.

Beautiful atoll in the Pacific Ocean , photographed using 400mm lens. Approximately 1930 km south of Honolulu ….


Perfect reflection of sun over the island of Cyprus.

Above the centre of the Atlantic Ocean , before another stunning sunset. Downstairs in the setting sun visible spiral Hurricane Earl.

A little farther east, we saw the sacred monolith Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock. I have never had the opportunity to visit Australia , but someday I hope
that I will stand by this miracle of nature.

Morning over the Andes in South America . I do not know for sure the title of this peak, but was simply amazed by her magic, stretching to the sun and
wind tops.

Over the Sahara desert, approaching the ancient lands and thousand-year history. River Nile flows through Egypt by the Pyramids of Giza near Cairo ..
Further, the Red Sea, Sinai Peninsula, Dead Sea , Jordan River, as well as the island of Cyprus in the Mediterranean Sea and Greece on the horizon.

Night view of the River Nile, stretching like a snake through Egypt to the Mediterranean, and Cairo, located in the Delta. Far away in this picture, one
can see the Mediterranean Sea …

Our unmanned ‘Progress 39P’ approaches the ISS for refuelling. It is full of food, fuel, spare parts and all necessities for our station. Inside was a real gift –
fresh fruit and vegetables. What a miracle after three months of food from a tube!

I wanted to share with you this view from the Dome.  We said goodbye to the members of our group Sasha, Misha and Tracy this weekend, and they returned
safely back to Earth. In this photo, Tracy quietly dreams of returning home.

Module Union 23C Olympus docked with the ISS .  When our work ends here, we go back home to Earth. We fly over the snow-capped peaks of the
Caucasus . The rising sun is reflected from the Caspian Sea.

The flash of colour, movement and life on the canvas of our amazing world. This is part of the Great Barrier Reef off the east coast of Australia , photographed through the lens of 1200 mm.

All the beauty of Italy , a clear winter night. You can see many beautiful islands that adorn the coast – Capri , Sicily and Malta . Naples and
Mount Vesuvius are allocated along the coast. 

At the southern end of South America lies the pearl of Patagonia …. The amazing beauty of rugged mountains, massive glaciers, fjords and seas
combined in perfect harmony.

“Dome” on the side of nadir station gives a panoramic view of our beautiful planet. Fedor made the picture from the window of the Russian docking compartment.  In this photo I’m sitting in the dome, preparing the
camera for our evening flight over Hurricane Earl.

Florida and southeastern U.S. in the evening. A clear autumn evening, the moonlight over the water and sky, dotted with millions of stars.


Clear starry night over the eastern Mediterranean .. The ancient land with a thousand years of history stretching from Athens to Cairo . Historical land of
fabulous and alluring island … Athens – Crete – Rhodes – Izmir – Ankara – Cyprus – Damascus – Beirut – Haifa – Amman – Tel Aviv – Jerusalem –
Cairo – all of them turned into tiny lights in this cool November night. 

In this time of year you can enjoy the beauty of the polar mesospheric clouds. With our high-angle illumination, we were able to capture a thin layer
of noctilucent clouds at sunset.
