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.

Be-dewed

Autumn went by in the blink of an eye,

But before it disappeared, it left some dewy gifts:

Yellow suns,

Yellow suns

A spent sunflower

Adorned with a spider’s web,

Sunflower

A glorious necklace of dewdrops

On soft petals,

Be-dewed

Hot pink

Rainy flowers,

Pink beauty

And a dreamy

Pink tutu.

Misty jewels

I found a jewel in the early morning mist.

(Ruby takes her role as model very seriously.)

To the right of the jetty,

A pink panorama opened up;

Pink mist

And to the left, an Impressionist painting

Of trees floating in the dawn.

What I learnt from Venice

Tired of all my Venice photos? Good – neither am I!

What I learnt from Venice:

When we give people (or nature) the space and love they need

They can go their own way and create something wonderful.

Go your own way copy

Going off the beaten path

Leads to new wonders and perspectives.

Canal

Handle with love —

A philosophy that makes life more beautiful.

Love handle

And, sometimes, in the midst of ruins

Treasures can be found.

Into Impressionism

Late September sunsets

Are when cloud rainbows reflect in water

Rainbow

And autumn dances in

Wearing lilac veils.

Lilac burst
