Misty jewels

I found a jewel in the early morning mist.

(Ruby takes her role as model very seriously.)

A pink panorama opened up;

Pink mist

And to the left, an Impressionist painting

Of trees floating in the dawn.

    The reflection of those trees is magnificent. They do look as if they are floating. It looks cold, but I must say from afar I enjoy this time of your year because the landscape seems to transform itself in to all sorts of mystical expressions, and you capture them so well, Fiona.

    “And to the left, an Impressionist painting

    Yup, that’s exactly what it looks like, Fiona….a painting. Bellissima!

    And what a “jewel” Ruby is 🙂
