The dawn glowed apricot
And the moon hung gloriously golden in the sky.
Ruby loves jumping up onto rocks —
The higher the better.

When the dawn paints the sky
In tones of strawberry and lilac,
There is nothing more relaxing
Than enjoying some quiet time
Down at the beach.
The shower may be cold
But the view is delightful.

The sun always speaks to me of hope
And of better days to come.
It reminds me of the last verse of a poem
By Diana Der-Hovanessian.
When your father dies, say the Armenians,
your sun shifts forever.
And you walk in his light.
Thank you for your sympathy and kind comments!

Winter has many forms of beauty —
Sometimes it’s clear ice and cloudy skies,
Or a burst of pink dawn;
At other times, it’s golden fog
Or a honey glow over cottage and snow.
All photos taken with my mobile phone, so please excuse the quality.
I’m away for work this week, so may not have time
To get around to your blogs.
There is a narrow, hidden path that comes out
Next to a gorgeous lakeside house.
As you emerge from the path,
You might find yourself bathed in honeyed light on a clear winter’s day.
The light pours golden and warm
Over the hibernating bees — reminding us that
There are sweet things just around the corner.

The lull between big snow storms
Is painted in clouds of purple
And blue that roll over the landscape
As the sun slowly rises to say hello.
And, of course, my poser Ruby
Looks good in that early morning light.
(Meanwhile, Simmie just prefers to run around
In circles enjoying the snow! :-))

Snow is so beautiful —
It really brings out the colour of patient dogs.
It falls in swirls
Of fairy lights,
Turning the woods
Into a mysterious place.
Suddenly, tall, snow-topped trees
Make us realize how small we are in the universe,
And humble wood
Is turned into abstract art.

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.

This is a snowy post —
(Sorry about the pun),
Where splashes of red and white
Look like Santa’s hat;
And snug houses
Are framed by snowy branches.
And, if you’re lucky,
You might find the heart of winter.

All our snow melted and we ended up having a green Christmas.
This is nothing new – I found these shots of my dear, departed Oscar
About to enjoy a Christmas Eve swim under a canopy
Of perfect reflections from a few years ago.
A timely reminder that there is beauty
And joy and light in the world.
