Sometimes a sunset doesn’t put on
A fiery show as the sun goes down;
All you have to do is take your best girl, some dogs
And wait for the lilac and violet tints to paint the sky.

The sun rises —
Presenting the new day as a gift
Tied up with purple ribbons.

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.

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.)

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.

It wouldn’t be summer
Without an excursion down to the lake
And a hot air balloon
Floating away over lilac

We’ve had a lot of rain this summer —
And it’s been wonderful discovering the different flowers in the garden.
Raindrops are beautiful kisses
On the petalled lips of tulips,
While bringing out the fragrance
Of the lilacs.
(This post is scent with love
From me to you.)

Oh, the things we do to get a photo!
While I was in New Jersey, I had some fabulous photo sessions with friends.
One was a sunset session in a (secret) location on the New Jersey shore
With a marvellous view of the Manhattan skyline and the Freedom Tower.
I may or may not have trespassed on some waste ground
In order to capture the twisted pier
And the buildings glowing in the perfect lilac twilight.

A misty dawn
In lilac and blue;
A swan floating
Serenely through the mist;
As dawn ends, the fog disperses
In clouds made of pink tutus.
For more serenity, please visit: Skywatch.
A chilly morning dawned
Bringing out the colours of the leaves
And the swans.
They appeared out of the mist
Like feathered ships.
The sun bursting through the trees
Placed stripes of light on the swan’s neck.
Closer and closer the swan sailed
Beautiful in the lilac dawn.
