The pendulum has swung, and now the days
Will be shorter than the evenings.
This means early morning mists
And emerald green reflections
Slowly turning to rust.
Calm reflections, red houses
And beautiful views
Mean autumn is slowly on its way.

I have lots more photos from Portugal to share with you —
But I thought I’d take a break this week
And show you the beauty of raindrops
Dancing on the edge of
Beautiful green leaves (some would say weeds).
These shots remind me of a lovely Tagore quote:
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.

Early summer is
A symphony of green and wildlife:
The green is
Sometimes luminous and startling,
Sometimes like dewy
And sometimes abstract paintings
In the rain.

Trees are like Nature’s poems
To the sky:
They take on the tint
Of a lilac dawn;
Even in the middle of winter
They surprise with sudden green
In the snow.
And deep in the woods,
I was lucky enough
To breathe in the beauty
Of abstract tree trunks
Looking like a beautiful picture.

The spring rains fall
Leaving behind crystal balls on leaves —
Entire worlds living in those small raindrops.
Grass grows wildly
Dotted with the cheerful faces
Of dandelions and dogs.
A tiny yellow snail
Reminds me that slow
Is the pace of nature
And that trees reflected
Create their own art.

One warm afternoon last year,
I was walking in an unexplored forest
And taking photos of Oscar.
Suddenly, I looked up to see a deer
Gazing peacefully at me.
Our eyes locked for what felt like ages.
I felt the deer was trying to tell me something:
That you can find gifts in the most unexpected of places.
