Light

The sonata of light

Hark! I hear the trumpet call 

Of delicious autumn light.

It calls me through the mist

And drenches me with its music.

Golden wonder

A perfect April evening …

A golden sunset

Where the heart is filled

With joy and wonder.

De-light

It’s still very cold in the mornings and evenings (below zero) —

But oh, what a joy it is

De-light.jpg

To see the light returning in shades of orange

And lilac.

Frosted views

The snow is melting and the light is changing —

But who says that winter is without its own bright light?

When it is cold with hoar frost

Lying thick on the branches

And, with the sun shining,

The cold can be just as dazzling.

All that glitters is not gold

Although we often judge people, countries, cities

On outward appearances, there is far more to us

Than meets the eye.

Despite current political rhetoric and media

That would have us believe we are each other’s enemies,

Night.jpg

I truly believe that there is far more that unites us as humans.

We just need to make sure we remember that.

So, here’s to no more hate and a lot more love!

Oh that winter light!

There is a narrow, hidden path that comes out

Next to a gorgeous lakeside house.

As you emerge from the path,

You might find yourself bathed in honeyed light on a clear winter’s day.

The light pours golden and warm

Over the hibernating bees — reminding us that

There are sweet things just around the corner.

Golden threads

Wonderful things happen when the sun

Breaks through in a ball of golden glow.

Golden glow.jpg

The sunshine hitting cold ground

Creates an angel of light

As fog rises to meet the dawn.

Angel rising.jpg

Cobwebs strung across the fields

Are delicate, golden threads

And feathery fluff from wild flowers

Rests among friends in a field

Of golden bokeh.

(By the way, it started to snow here on November 1st!)

Golden bowl sky

The summer solstice is

A time of beauty.

Solstice sun.jpg

The longest day slowly

Comes to an end

With a molten bowl

Of golden light.

Delicious fog

A few weeks ago, I was out on a long walk.

It was eerily misty in the woods.

Mistical.jpg

Suddenly, the sun broke through

Transforming everything into

Golden strips of light —

Light.jpg

As if greeting the early morning

With a hallelujah.

Oh, that golden light!

Sometimes it’s worth setting the alarm for 4.30 in the morning

In order to capture the magical, golden sunburst

Of sunrise over the Manhattan skyline.
