It’s a new day, a new season.
The rising sun reminds me of the beauty in the world.
Satin reflections on the lake
Bring a sense of calm;
And my jetty always has the most
(This is Ruby: Oscar’s great-granddaughter, who is now our dog.)

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

Somewhere over the rainbow,
September descends softly
With wreaths of mist
And a single leaf
Floats to the ground.
Shocking pink beauties
Bow dewy heads
And flowers offer up
Petalled cups of love.

Sweet memories of
The dogs days of summer:
Enjoying sultry evenings
Of purple magnificence
With my best furry friend.

The lone umbrella
Speaks of a jetty well used;
Of summer picnics and laughter.
But now, in this glorious moment
Of mist and clouds
And pink abstract –
It speaks of the peace of an early dawn.

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.

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.

Mid-July and the sun was setting somewhere around 10.30 pm:
Perfect for a late-night picnic on the pier.
As with all our picnics where Oscar is involved,
We end up pretty wet — whether we’ve been swimming or not!
Life is pretty good though:
Jump, enjoy life, repeat.

Of a summer sunset;
Long rays of sunlight
Lay flat on the sky
While clouds dance on golden lake –
And, finally, liquid honey
Transforms a humble thistle
Into a magnificent creature of light.

I don’t seem to be able to get enough
Of our late evening honey glow!
It pours like warm syrup
Over water and jetty.
It bathes Oscar
As he enjoys the view;
And dances on golden feet
Over the lovely clover.
(I lay down in a patch of nettles to take this photo!)
