Zen-sational

Autumn is a time of exuberant energy –

It’s quite zensational, in fact.

Zen-sational

The golden coins of leaves

Hang like happy suns in the trees;

Golden coins

The light in the woods

Is magical.

Light copy

Everywhere you go,

You can see flying leaves

(Those black dots aren’t dirt, they are leaves!)

And beautiful views.

Golden view

And the best thing about autumn

Is that you’re never too old

To frolic in the leaves.

Sunrise serenade

The sun breaks through

The early morning fog

Breakthrough

With a glorious

Golden hallelujah of light.

(Note to self: Let nothing dim the light that shines within.)

A new dawn

It’s a new day, a new season.

The rising sun reminds me of the beauty in the world.

New dawn

Satin reflections on the lake

Bring a sense of calm;

Reflections

And my jetty always has the most

Beautiful views.

(This is Ruby: Oscar’s great-granddaughter, who is now our dog.)

The blue hour

Late summer is a time for the blues –

Time for the happy blues;

Boat

Time to gaze in wonder

At the ripples

And enjoy a golden sunset

(And a dog).

That golden light

The kids and I spent a wonderful, long day in London recently –

And they had to pull me away as the sun was setting over the Thames.

The lamps were lit up by the golden glow of the sun

And the man seemed blissfully unaware of the seagulls flying up behind him …

Man on bridge

Even the double-decker buses looked romantic

As the molten carpet of light flowed over the water.

Golden water

However, I’m not really a big city kind of person

And am always grateful to be back by ‘my’ lake –

To enjoy its golden beauty.

The sunken boat in this photo reminds me of Rumi:

“Where there is ruin, there is hope for treasure.”

Making photos with our eyes

My ‘baby sis’ and I ended up on Brighton Pier one evening

While I was in England.

After a wonderful time with the kids at the amusement park,

We caught a spectacular sunset over the old West Pier.

West Pier

As we headed back to the car with the lights twinkling,

My daughter burst out, “I wish we could make photos with our eyes.”

Pier and light

Her Aunty Kata (my sister) had a brilliant reply:

“We can. They are called memories.”

(I’m away at a summer cottage here in Sweden until the weekend, so may not be able to visit you. But I do APPRECIATE all your comments!)

Sunburst

The sunburst

Of a summer sunset;

Sunset relaxation

Long rays of sunlight

Lay flat on the sky

While clouds dance on golden lake –

Sunset 2

And, finally, liquid honey

Transforms a humble thistle

Into a magnificent creature of light.

Puppy love

Indulge me a little

As I talk about love and dogs.

(This is an old photo – but one of my favourites.)

Best buddies copy

Oscar, our dog, came to us

When he was four and a half.

He has taught us so much

About love and companionship.

(My son took this picture of Oscar, 11.5, and me.)

Fuzzy buddy

Ruby, 5, is our foster dog and has been with us since December.

She was mated and grew larger and larger.

Towards the end of her pregnancy, she didn’t go far

But loved the coolness of the late evening light.

Ruby light

We thought she might have three or four pups inside her (like the first litter of pups she had last year),

But she surprised us all by giving birth to eight healthy puppies.

This is a photo the breeder sent me on the same day as the birth.

I’d say love conquers all, wouldn’t you?

Honey glow

I don’t seem to be able to get enough

Of our late evening honey glow!

Golden light

It pours like warm syrup

Over water and jetty.

Bonding

It bathes Oscar

As he enjoys the view;

Oscar

And dances on golden feet

Over the lovely clover.

(I lay down in a patch of nettles to take this photo!)

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).
