This side of the rainbow

I don’t need to fly over the rainbow

When I can be here

Soaring in the sky with the lone heron

In the silence of dawn.

  6. Hi there – thanks for the comments – one of the joys of autumn (or chilly summer mornings) is the mist rising up off rivers and lakes – such a great capture.
    On a different note – I wonder how we can make it clear to governments that education (and the environment) should be their key focus – without care for both where will we end up?
