Call the clouds what you will:
Or pink candy floss.
They are still just as beautiful.

A misty dawn
In lilac and blue;
A swan floating
Serenely through the mist;
As dawn ends, the fog disperses
In clouds made of pink tutus.

Isn’t it amazing how quickly Nature can change?
One minute trailing soft ribbons of pink
And the next surprising the eye
With blueberry swirls and orange pop.

A strange pink glow
Beckoned me out into the storm.
There on the rickety jetty,
Was a lone goose
Staring out into the sunset.
It was a moment full of poignancy and beauty.
Just him and me
And the whisper of autumn.

Wide skies of
Red and purple
Invite us to drink

The botanical gardens in Stockholm
Have a round greenhouse, and every year,
If you’re lucky – you can see the world’s largest water lily,
Victoria Amazonica, in bloom.
The large domed roof of the greenhouse
Filters the light so that the room
Is filled with a magical green.
Some of the lilies were
Just peeking out of their pods
While others had already unfurled
Into petalled perfection.

There’s nothing better
Than strolling along the beach
And drinking in the heady beauty
Of a fierce orange sunset,
While the pink balloon of the disappearing sun
Turns waves into silk.

One evening in the early summer
There was a special light in the air.
Midges danced around Ruby like small diamonds;
Brother and sister enjoyed
Some quiet moments of beauty while Simson charged in for a dip;
And a special glow painted the landscape
With summer light.

It’s been one of the wettest summers on record
Here in Sweden.
The flowers aren’t complaining.
In fact, they seem to unfurl
To drink in the rain
While unopened buds
Are happy just to be.
My parents need some help this week, so I’m away in England again. I might not be able to visit you or reply to your comments. But please know they are much appreciated.
