Nature is a masterpiece

I slowly make my way down to the lake,

Hoping to see autumn miracles.


The early morning is moody and mysterious,

Yet I glimpse masterpieces of autumn

In the gloomy light.


As it gets brighter, the peaceful grey sky

Makes the colours of leaves and fur pop.


The dogs chase one another,

Oblivious of the copper and gold around them.

When I get back to the boat that you see in the second photo,

The sun shines — leaving me with the beautiful taste

Of lemon glaze on water.

Implausibly pink perfection

Dawn blushes

And tinges everything pink:

As the sun rises

We enjoy a moment of rose-tinted serenity.


The view from my new part of the lake

Is simply stunning on an early morning, don’t you think?

Ode to a jetty

A couple of weeks ago, we got the news that our beloved jetty (where we used to live)

Had been removed because it was old and rickety.


That was part of its charm:

We loved the way it curved and warped and bent;

The way it seemed to stretch out to infinity.


It was a big part of the children’s childhood —

Peaceful moments under big skies;


And it was there I enjoyed so many moments

With a best furry buddy.

RIP, dear old jetty – you will be missed!

(Luckily, I took a lot of photos of my favourite place

So there are still plenty to share with you.)

Summer reflections

Standing on the edge of the lake,

The water as calm as a mirror,


I spot swans

On the other side


And a bridge floating

Among luscious green reflections.

Misty beauty

Sunrise and it’s the autumn equinox:

The lake is still and beautiful

With rising mist in shades of pink.


The moon admires itself in the water –

Reflecting brightly like a silver penny.

(I’ve forgotten my big camera —

But as the saying goes, “The best camera is the one you have with you.”)

Into the lilac forever

It wouldn’t be summer

Without an excursion down to the lake


And a hot air balloon

Floating away over lilac

And purple.

Oh, the soft golden light of sunset

And a hot haze over the hills of Sussex, England!


And to top it all —

The glowing sun

Turned tails and manes

To molten gold and bronze.

Magical horses

Up on the Downs in Sussex, England,

On a magical sunset evening —


Layers of golden hills

Glow like jewels


While horses graze

And rainbows sparkle.

I’m off to England at the end of the week —

It’s a very special occasion.


My brother is getting married!

So there will be celebrations, the eating of good food


And some long walks up on the South Downs, I hope.

I’m looking forward to a love-filled week.

(I’ll be back on my blog in a week or so. Until then, take care!)

Romancing the earth

Sizzling orange, a glowing setting sun —

That’s when the sky romances the earth

With its beauty.
