Chasing the light

The skies over the past few weeks have been grey —

So I’ve been chasing down the light.

I found it framed in golden fog

Hanging over the lake;

Framed

It danced over the football field

On fairy rainbow feet.

Snow rainbow

And, there – at last –

Like a cold winter flower

It blossomed in rays of light.

Rays in trees

    Light such as this, is what a delusional idiot as I runs to with pants on fire -with winged fairy feet of course of course. The shroud of sublime does mother nature wear. These have brighten my day, no doubt will warm my night. Yes, I too, can see, feel and soak in the magic which lives in these photographs; those artsy fairies run about.
