The blue beyond

The spring equinox is when day and night are equally long:

A perfect balance that was reflected in the azure blue

Of open water and the white cold of the ice still left on the lake.

The blue.jpg

Even the clouds seemed to find harmony

In their own reflections.

As for that bluer than a jay’s wing sky —

All I could do was to stand and gaze in wonder.

Into the beyond

One of my favourite early morning sights

Was the old jetty

Stretching into the beyond.

(I’m away all weekend so won’t be able to visit your blogs.)

Ruby on a rock

The dawn glowed apricot

And the moon hung gloriously golden in the sky.

Ruby loves jumping up onto rocks —

The higher the better.

The hopeful sun

The sun always speaks to me of hope

And of better days to come.

It reminds me of the last verse of a poem

By Diana Der-Hovanessian.

When your father dies, say the Armenians,
your sun shifts forever.
And you walk in his light.

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.

Rolling clouds

The lull between big snow storms

Is painted in clouds of purple

Drama.jpg

And blue that roll over the landscape

As the sun slowly rises to say hello.

And, of course, my poser Ruby

Looks good in that early morning light.

(Meanwhile, Simmie just prefers to run around 

In circles enjoying the snow! :-))

Deep purple

One morning in late November,

Just as the ice was forming on the lake,

The houses on the far shore were lit up like a necklace of lights.

Dawn.jpg

One in particular was ablaze —

What a glorious view it must be from those windows!

The sun rose slowly

Turning the world into a tapestry of lilacs and pinks,

Stitched together with clouds.

Light burst

If the sky could be a musical instrument —

It would be a trumpet burst of light.

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season

Full of light and joy and love.

Paws for thought

13 December is Lucia – one of my favourite times of year.

Lucia is all about children dressed in white and carrying candles

To symbolize hope and light in the darkness.

Ablaze.jpg

The dawn that day didn’t disappoint either.

It blazed with light and colour,

So that dogs (and people) seemed small and humble

Under the huge lilac sky;

And paw prints were etched across a purple

Canopy of snow – leading the eye

To that glorious sky of hope.

Pink heaven

As the temperatures drop,

The colours in the sky intensify.

Pink view.jpg

When the ice reflects back

The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,

Oh buoy.jpg

You know you’re lucky enough

To be enjoying a slice of heaven.
