Golden transformation

When golden insects

Dance in the air,

Golden dust

And the setting sun

Transforms people

And a bucket on the jetty

Into objects of beauty,

Golden glimpses

Then the best thing to do

Is lean back

And try to catch the magic

With your wand (or fishing rod).

    I like the idea’rrrrrr of fish’n f’r gold. Grab u’r rod, catch sum glow……..deep rich golden colour sepia, as if spear of chemical going wrong in the dark, or the discolouring effect of glass negatives or even the slow peel of a Polaroid image.-yours are unbelievably warming in feeling and emotion.

    June 21, 2014 at 20:42

  74. Wonderful colours – any time by a lake is improved by the presence of a fishing rod!

    Cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne
