Dawn, unfurling

A couple of weeks ago,

Simson and I sneaked out of the house very early

To enjoy the soft, pink dawn.

Simson

We saw a line of ducks

Flung against the purple canopy of the sky.

They flew past like scattered leaves,

While we remained – marvelling at the way dawn unfurls.

Catching fire

The early morning sky caught fire

And spread its blaze of glory

To the mirror of the lake.

Doing the salsa

Winter is at its best during early spring.

Bright snow

After days of warmth,

A fresh snowfall looks so pretty.

Dogs in snow

The hazel flowers covered in ice

Captured my imagination.

Icy hazel

Spring is about taking two steps back

And one step forward —

So we may as well enjoy the spring salsa.

Glitter

Just like Ruby

And Simson (that’s him goofing around in the background) do.

Spring sparkles

We celebrated the spring equinox

With snow and blue skies.

Blue skies

Ice drops

Sparkled from daring buds —

The fuzzy catkins

Looked lovely in their cold diamond earrings,

Ice drop

And the hazel flowers

Glittered in the sunlight.

Even though it was still winter on a spring day —

Those sparkly skies were beautiful and uplifting.

Blushing dawn

The blushing apricot tones

Of dawn light up the sky,

Hoar frost dawn

And bring a sparkle

To the trees wearing

Their winter dress of hoar frost.

Hoar frost

Then the dawn mellows

Into a melody of lilac and pink

Over the old church across the frozen lake.

Who says cold isn’t beautiful?

Golden horizon

November was mild and grey —

But one day, the sun broke through the cover

To create a lovely golden horizon of trees.

Golden horizon

Clouds floated by

In rainbow colours,

Reflections

And, of course, Ruby had to pose

At the end of the jetty under the silver sky.

Frozen beauty

If you could see cold —

Then it might be painted with frost and lilac

And the first blush of a late winter dawn.

Travel light

I hope you travel through the coming year

With light and love in your hearts.

Tattered

You can be tattered, but still beautiful.

Tattered and beautiful

My father is ill so I’m in England visiting him and won’t be replying to your kind comments.

See you at the end of the week.

Bring me that horizon

Misty curtains part,

Dawn appears through the cracks

With fingers of light.

Misty boat

Time to stop and gaze in wonder;

And let the busy pause.
