Parasol skies

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;

Parasol

Sometimes the dawn

Is an orange burst;

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.

May postcard

May is the time of birdsong and golden light.

A visitor dropped by – flew straight into the kitchen

And demanded coffee with a merry song.

Goldfinch

As the sun sets later and later,

Its golden light paints everything

With honeyed tones

Glittering jetty

And is the perfect background

For a friend’s dog shaking herself dry

After an evening dip.

As for Oscar — he loves contemplating

A May sunset …

But no prizes for guessing

What he did next.

Yes – he went for a swim. After all, who could resist?

Lavender skies

There is nothing as magnificent

As those big lavender and gold skies –

Big purple and gold sky copy

And the total joy

Of two dogs running through the purple:

Living as if someone left the gate open.

Feathered hope

An early golden sunset;

Birds flying off into the horizon; echoes of their flight left on the water.

For some reason, this simple scene

Filled me with hope for the future

And peace in the present.

‘Hope is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul.’
– Emily Dickinson

Golden thread

If I had needle and golden thread

I’d weave you a glorious tapestry

Of clouds

And colour at dawn.

Serenade

What better way to serenade

The late September sky of

Purple and gold

Lake

Than with a jump

Of joy –

Oscar-equinox-jump

Followed by a long moment

Enjoying the golden ripples

Of the reflected sun?

Dawn gold

Something woke me up far too early (before 5 am).

Perhaps it was the golden silence

Calling my name;

Dawn 1

Or the beaver in the lake

As he swam through watery clouds.

Dawn 3

Perhaps it was the glory

Of a new day whispering:

Do not miss a single golden moment.

Plane skies

The hush of dawn at the airport.

A wooden floor of shimmering gold.

Plane

Dreams can come true too

If you fly off into the sunrise.

Into dawn

(Pictures taken with my mobile phone on the way to Paris.

My daughter directed and took the second photo.)

THANK YOU for all your comments.

Mist, rising

The pink glow of the early setting winter sun

Enticed us outside to explore

The wonders just beyond the horizon.

Viewing the mist

It was a miracle of trees that

Seemed to float in the rising mist –

Mist rising 2

A wonder of purple and gold

Painting the fog with magic.

Frosted skies

It’s cold and deliciously wintery now.

But a couple of weeks ago,

When it seemed as if winter would never arrive,

Frosted skies

The promise of winter hung in

The frosted sky

Painting hopes and lake

With glorious tones of gold.
