Wonder

After three months of drought, forest fires and extreme heat,

The weather has finally turned cool and rainy.

It sure looks good!

Balloon sunset

My Saturday nights are fairly exciting 🙂 :

Balloons arriving.jpg

They consist of watching

The sun setting over the lake:

Preferable with a burnt orange sky

And balloons gently floating away on the horizon.

Burnished gold

Another golden sunset:

Trees marching across the horizon;

The burnished copper of the lake

Is still.

I gaze at the scene

In wonder.

The colours of spring

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!

De-light

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

And lilac.

Frozen

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.

Autumn, reflected

The bare bones of autumn

With rich splashes of colour are delightful.

The fiery lanterns of leaves

Hang upside down in still waters.

Reflected.jpg

And all that gold from the autumn sun

Is reflected back on furry coat and field.

Lemon sorbet

The wild daffodils are like icy lemon bells

In the shadowed places of the woods.

Yes – it’s been a cold April!

Lemon bells.jpg

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 blue beyond

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.

The blue.jpg

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.

Big snow, cold feet

After our huge snowfall last week, I thought it would be fun

To fight my way through snowdrifts to capture

The snow-laden clouds.

Benched.jpg

The snow was up to my thighs.

My feet got cold as it seeped into my boots.

Coldsky.jpg

The bench seemed a good place to

Contemplate the horizon

And enjoy the view.
