Sunrise and it’s the autumn equinox:
The lake is still and beautiful
With rising mist in shades of pink.
The moon admires itself in the water –
Reflecting brightly like a silver penny.
(I’ve forgotten my big camera —
But as the saying goes, “The best camera is the one you have with you.”)

Mist has magical powers:
It can transform ordinary objects
(Here a crane on the jetty in Ericeira, Portugal)
Into classic suspense movie shots.
It turns a sunrise
Into a moment of purple-tinged drama —
And if it lingers all day,
A misty sunset can turn
Landscapes into paintings.

A few weeks ago, I was out on a long walk.
It was eerily misty in the woods.
Suddenly, the sun broke through
Transforming everything into
Golden strips of light —
As if greeting the early morning
With a hallelujah.

When I woke up this morning, it was very misty
With the sun struggling through foggy veils.
That reminded me of all the moments of joy
When we lived down by the lake
And I could step outside in my dressing gown
To enjoy the sky kissing the water.

It’s been very mild (too mild!)
With misted silver views
And pastel pink skies.

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.

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.

Isn’t it amazing how quickly Nature can change?
One minute trailing soft ribbons of pink
And the next surprising the eye
With blueberry swirls and orange pop.

Sometimes, early morning
Is a magical place —
Where it feels as if
Dreams can come true
Right there on the edge
Of the first apricot blush of dawn.
For more magic, please visit: Our World.
I found a jewel in the early morning mist.
(Ruby takes her role as model very seriously.)
To the right of the jetty,
A pink panorama opened up;
And to the left, an Impressionist painting
Of trees floating in the dawn.
