After three months of drought, forest fires and extreme heat,
The weather has finally turned cool and rainy.
It sure looks good!

My Saturday nights are fairly exciting 🙂 :
They consist of watching
The sun setting over the lake:
Preferable with a burnt orange sky
And balloons gently floating away on the horizon.

Another golden sunset:
Trees marching across the horizon;
The burnished copper of the lake
I gaze at the scene
For more fiery skies, please go to: Skywatch.
Spring has burst forth
In an outburst of molten gold;
The ice melts
In shades of blue;
And petals offer up
Bouquets of purple.
Oh, how I love the colours of spring!
For more spring, please go to: Our World.
It’s still very cold in the mornings and evenings (below zero) —
But oh, what a joy it is
To see the light returning in shades of orange

I haven’t been walking down to the lake that often
As the path is treacherously icy;
But when we do make it down there, Ruby is Queen of all she can see.
Splashes of purple
Look like frozen ribbons
Declaring ‘It’s not spring yet.’
No matter how much we pine (get the pun?)
For warmer times, we just have to appreciate what we have.

The bare bones of autumn
With rich splashes of colour are delightful.
The fiery lanterns of leaves
Hang upside down in still waters.
And all that gold from the autumn sun
Is reflected back on furry coat and field.

The wild daffodils are like icy lemon bells
In the shadowed places of the woods.
Yes – it’s been a cold April!
They glitter in the sunlight
Showing off their cold diamonds.
Later on in my walk,
I come across so many gold and lemon
Sparkles as the sun bounces of the ice on a fence.
(No editing needed here – these are all nature’s own sparkles.)
And finally, Simmie ‘hides’ on the path,
Hoping to pounce out at Ruby as she passes by.
(He’s a silly boy!)

The spring equinox is when day and night are equally long:
A perfect balance that was reflected in the azure blue
Of open water and the white cold of the ice still left on the lake.
Even the clouds seemed to find harmony
In their own reflections.
As for that bluer than a jay’s wing sky —
All I could do was to stand and gaze in wonder.

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.
