The dawn glowed apricot
And the moon hung gloriously golden in the sky.
Ruby loves jumping up onto rocks —
The higher the better.

One morning in late November,
Just as the ice was forming on the lake,
The houses on the far shore were lit up like a necklace of lights.
One in particular was ablaze —
What a glorious view it must be from those windows!
The sun rose slowly
Turning the world into a tapestry of lilacs and pinks,
Stitched together with clouds.

13 December is Lucia – one of my favourite times of year.
Lucia is all about children dressed in white and carrying candles
To symbolize hope and light in the darkness.
The dawn that day didn’t disappoint either.
It blazed with light and colour,
So that dogs (and people) seemed small and humble
Under the huge lilac sky;
And paw prints were etched across a purple
Canopy of snow – leading the eye
To that glorious sky of hope.

When the dawn is ablaze in lilac
And the rising sun paints the treetops gold…
The result is just breath-taking!
(I have a crazy busy week ahead of me
So won’t be around much.)

As the temperatures drop,
The colours in the sky intensify.
When the ice reflects back
The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,
You know you’re lucky enough
To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

As the sun was rising in gorgeous pink tones,
The bare trees of November and the frosted ground
Cast beautiful reflections on the lake.
There is so much beauty
In the minimalism of a buoy stuck in ice
And a float to keep us anchored
In case we fly away on the dreaminess of the
Stunning pink dawn.

After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun
To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture
The snow-laden clouds.
The snow was up to my thighs.
My feet got cold as it seeped into my boots.
The bench seemed a good place to
Contemplate the horizon
And enjoy the view.

The world changes so rapidly.
Only last week, it was beautiful autumn
And time for swimming in clouds.
The ripples of our actions
Have far-reaching effects,
So it’s wise to act with kindness.
Even a misty and cloudy sunrise
Brings hope and beauty.

Two autumn sunrises:
One blazing across the sky as dogs frolic in the early morning;
The other breathing serenity
In gorgeous light.

Autumn makes me rich
As it leaves its golden coins on the shore of the lake.
Misty pastel pinks
Blend with lilac clouds and autumn trees.
I stand in awe and drink in the wonder.
