Gone surfing

On Thursday, I’m flying off to Portugal again with the kids —

Time to enjoy Lisbon and then

Off to the beach for

Surfing and sunsets.

These photos are from the Atlantic Coast, Portugal, taken last year.

(See you all again in about ten days.)

Strawberry surprise

The jetty in my old neighbourhood

Is still as delightfully wonky as ever.

And the world looks deliciously

Enchanting with the rising sun.

Postcards from June

June was a time of misty greens

And magical tunnels of leaves.

Green.jpg

It drizzled a lot,

Meaning that everything

little house.jpg

Appeared misty

And slightly out of focus.

But you know what –

I love it!

Golden goldens

It was a gorgeous evening

When I went out for a walk with the dogs.

Honey light.jpg

The summer light

Drizzled over grass and dogs alike

Lighting up the fields

With its honeyed glow

Dogs running.jpg

So that there was gold

Both in the sky

And in the grass.

Golden bowl sky

The summer solstice is

A time of beauty.

The longest day slowly

Comes to an end

With a molten bowl

Of golden light.

Summer swan

Life is busy with deadlines, work

And enjoying the beauty of summer,

So I won’t be able to visit your blogs this week.

Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly….
~Pablo Neruda

Dawn’s blush

Have you ever wondered what a large city

Looks like before the sun is up?

I arrived at Hoboken Park at 5 in the morning

During my visit to New York

To bring you the answer:

The blush of dawn

Makes everything look beautiful.

(That’s the George Washington Bridge you can see.)

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.

Enjoying my greens

Early summer is

A symphony of green and wildlife:

Deerpeekaboo.jpg

The green is

Sometimes luminous and startling,

Green.jpg

Sometimes like dewy

Emerald fireworks,

Rainygreen.jpg

And sometimes abstract paintings

In the rain.

Peaceful pink

A walk down by a nearby lake at sunset

Revealed swirls of pink in the sky.

Pink swirls.jpg

The light gently landed on the water

Giving it a gorgeous pink hue.

Later on, a small, silver

Sliver of a moon sailed into the sky

Bringing peace at the end of the day.
