I do believe
The wings of the swan
Love the light of the setting sun.
“Sometimes I need
only to stand
wherever I am
to be blessed.” — Mary Oliver

With or without wispy ears –
To share a sunset with.

After the silence of winter,
Spring makes itself heard in the loud
Symphony of birds
Twittering, singing, warbling.
It’s a feathered harmony of music!

April seems stuck in the beauty of winter.
A couple of weeks ago, we enjoyed
A pink panorama of big skies and fluffy clouds.
And only a couple of days ago,
The snow cover on the lake was gone
And the cold mist seemed to make
The clouds as silver and soft as silk.
Gently, almost secretly, spring is approaching!
For more panoramas, please visit: Skywatch.
The pink glow of the early setting winter sun
Enticed us outside to explore
The wonders just beyond the horizon.
It was a miracle of trees that
Seemed to float in the rising mist –
A wonder of purple and gold
Painting the fog with magic.
For more miracles, please visit: Skywatch.
When the sky burns bright
As the sun sets
And the red turns
Into a magical purple tapestry…
Then the only response possible
Is one of wonder

Than the setting of a glowing sun
On a fiery summer’s evening –
And the perfect ending
To a perfect day?

The long Scandinavian summer evenings are magical.
But some are more magical than others.
Especially when hot air balloons
Swoop through the golden skies
Before gracefully landing
Somewhere beyond the horizon.

The rain clouds parted
To reveal a sky turned to copper
And a flaming sheet of water
For the swans to dance on.

As the sun sets in a blaze of glory,
There is no better place to watch the play
Of cloud and light
Than on a bench in the setting sun.

It’s Midsummer — or the summer solstice –
When we celebrate the longest day and shortest night.
The sun still shines strongly at 10.30 at night,
Painting the sky with wisps of light
And sending coloured clouds of happiness and peace our way.

When the sun shines
And twinkles like the star it is…
That can only mean one thing:
The ice has melted
And the lake is now a golden bowl of water.
For more stars, please visit: Skywatch.
The sun – just like life -
Burns us not with its heat,
But with its passion,
And its golden glow.
(And yes, it was a very cold sunset!)

I’m not usually a big fan of pink.
But when Nature takes her paintbrush
And lights up the bowl of the sky with a rainbow of pinks…
Well, who can resist?
And, judging by the looks of things,
I wasn’t the only one who was tickled pink
By the vibrancy of the sunset.
Who says November is always grey?

Last week, we enjoyed the autumn equinox:
That time of year when day and night are equally long
And a kind of balance hums throughout the world.
The earth slowly spins
In and out of the light and dark -
Like a child dipping her toes into deliciously inviting water.
This is also a metaphor about life:
A dance of light and dark
With peaceful moments of balance in between.

… S is for the social butterflies that gather by the lake.
(Look to the left of the photo – I love the joy of that man laughing.)
… For the serenity of another dazzling sunset.
… And for skipping stones in pajamas on a warm summer night.

Even a fresh snowfall couldn’t dim the joy of this time of year: the spring equinox.
A time when the light starts coming back, ice and snow recede eventually
And long evenings unfurl perfumed with flowers and warmth.
As one hemisphere gets shorter days and the other longer ones,
This Yin and Yang dance reminds me that we all share this world
And that we are all dependent on each other for balance and harmony.
I will love the light for it shows me the way. Yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.

Is there anything more delightful than dancing in the clouds
And weaving rainbows to wear in your hair?
And what is more magical than watching fire
Melt into glowing embers in the sky?
And there, in the softness at the end of the day,
You can find enchantment and beauty and love.
