Late September sunsets
Are when cloud rainbows reflect in water
And autumn dances in
Wearing lilac veils.

Back in May,
The poppies were out in abundance –
Waving gently in the sun;
Some with flamboyant red
Upside down tutus;
Others a mere
I took a long time taking photos,
So Ruby had to check on me every now and then.
(She’s still on maternity leave with her pups at the moment though.)

Late summer — and dawn is finally making an appearance again at a reasonable time.
Some mornings, sunrise unfurls like a parasol
Made of blue silk;
Sometimes the dawn
Is an orange burst;
But my favourite kind of sunrise
Is one of peace and reflection,
A canvas ready for colour
And the signature of three small birds in flight.

Late summer is a time for the blues –
Time for the happy blues;
Time to gaze in wonder
At the ripples
And enjoy a golden sunset
(And a dog).

July was a time of long, long summer nights,
And strawberry swirls in the sky.
Pink gave way to
Ruby red –
As the sun sank into the lake
With a sizzling hot splash.

It’s been hard taking photos as the sun sets around 11 pm
And rises again at about 2.30 in the morning – and even then it’s never really dark.
Sometimes, however, you get lucky –
A cold front comes in, the fleece goes on –
And you go out to enjoy the beauty
Of a summer storm.

Dazzling golden light
Dances on the lake,
While the swan
Sails majestically on ripples.
As the sun sets and twilight descends,
Lake and swan
Become a beautiful abstract.
(Summer is a gorgeous time in ‘my’ backyard!)
I’m selling these shots as prints, posters, photos, bags and cushions on my Red Bubble site. * End of shameless self-marketing*

On a carpet of burnished gold
Swims a swan
In the dancing light
Of a shimmering sunset.

All you need to see
Is the fiery golden glow of a sunset
To realize how magnificent life really is.

Every year, the sakura – or Japanese cherry blossoms -
Spread pretty pops of pink elation in downtown Stockholm.
They hang like
Petalled bunches from the trees;
Clouds of blossoms in the sky;
Float in the air
Like pink tutus;
And remind us
That life, like the cherry blossom,
Is fragile, fleeting and beautiful.
