Such a magnificent tapestry seems to explode in the most placid and peaceful setting. A grand photograph, Tim.
Thanks for, Bill, the wonderful comment.
Gorgeous. Gorgeous Timothy! Image and words.
That one looks like a MOAB went off.
It is a massive air blast of clouds. Thanks, Brian.

Very impressive image !

Enjy the coming weekend.
This stopped my scroll! An explosion of color!
And your words match it.
“Exploding beauty” in colors and words. A most poetic vision, my dear friend… breathtaking.
…well, thank YOU, Tim, for providing this beauty oasis.
My lord, indeed it is like an explosion. Love the poem too.
What an incredible photograph!
WOW, that’s beautiful!
Now THAT is an explosion one likes to see! Beautiful poetry to go with your stunning image, Tim.
Thanks, Dale. It was noisy with thunder.
So… visuals AND sound! Woot!
Silenced by the photo.
A glorious photo, Timothy, and your poetry gives all the highlights that the photo couldn’t capture, like the silenced violent thunder. Wonderful final three lines.
Thanks, Jet. As I just noted for Dale, the thunder gave it the sounds of an explosion.
Phenomenal photo and words, Tim. I’m not at all surprised that such a close observer of nature is a natural with words. 🙂
Thanks, Mary Jo. Our skies are inspiring.
wow, powerful and griping that sky with your words Timothy💖
I am enjoying your poetry, Tim. Well done! Those clouds do make a beautiful explosion over the Sandias and river. I think this is got to be my favorite clouds-mountain-river photo of yours. You and Mother Nature outdid yourselves.
Thanks, Lavinia. The explosion was a good one.
Awesome photo, Tim. Your verse is wonderful and we love the how the last 3 lines close the scene.
Thanks, Maj & Sher.

Oh, wow! That had to be an awesome sight!!!
You have capture the sky with words, Tim. Thank you. I especially appreciated the ending; “Tranquil scene

All that once had light.”
It is as if the darkness is not to be feared – that it is only giving light a respite.
Thank you for the wonderful comment, Rebecca. Yes darkness gives light a respite, but also offers La Llorona and Chupacabra cover for their evil deeds.
I had goosebumps reading your comment, Tim. Stay safe out there….
You were certainly in the right place at the right time. Stunning! Lovely poem too.
Wow! What a terrific photograph. And great poetry.

I am beyond obsessed with this post! Amazing.
Wow! That sure is an explosion!!
Loving this piece Tim, the photograph is truly awe inspiring as is the poem.
Love it, Joni
Thanks, Joni. I’m happy you liked it.
You are a great poet too. I am guessing you really developed that side of yourself during years of writing lyrics for your music. 🎶🎼
Actually, I have only been writing lyrics for songs over the last three or four of years. I’ve written poetry on and off for years and years.
Well you should write more you write beautifully. Once you log into your website it is hard to stop reading and looking at the beautiful world your photograph to share with us. Sending love to you. ❤️Joni
