Pumpkin spice

The geese call out; they are leaving.

They look like musical notes stretched across the early evening sky.

Lilac tones

Turn into a dazzling orange sonata.

August’s universe

August offers up a universe of lovely bouquets:

A dazzling pink galaxy of flowers;

Hotpink.jpg

Yellow suns floating in the wind;

Or a floral star in the sky;

And, finally, an orange planet

Of gorgeous, sunlit petals.

Tangerine dream

Down by the lake,

The sun goes down in a burst of orange.

Simmie gets a burst of energy from the view —

And a swim in the cold water. He’s a happy boy!

Ruby prefers to sit and gaze

At the tangerine dream of another beautiful sunset.

Tequila sunrise with a twist of fog

The sunrise starts off

In lilac tones,

Dog.jpg

But soon it turns

Into a blushing dawn

Purple ice.jpg

With bursts of orange

And fog.

Orange beauty

There’s nothing better

Than strolling along the beach

Orange sun 1

And drinking in the heady beauty

Of a fierce orange sunset,

Sun setting 2

While the pink balloon of the disappearing sun

Turns waves into silk.

Disappearing

The ripple effect

When we look at ourselves in the universe,

We are but a small and humble part of the whole.

Wide skies

But each move and turn we make

Creates its own beautiful pattern

Duck 1

And tiny ripples of kindness or wonder

Can be passed onto others to enjoy.

Bee-autiful winged spring

May started off with a snowstorm —

But before that, spring had managed

To explode in glowing cups of beauty.

Orange burst tulip copy

Wild tulips sprouted

Paper thin wings of petals

Tulip

That matched the lovely

Wings of bees enjoying the flowers.

Wings and hyacinth copy

And on a still day, if you stand quietly beneath this tree,

You can hear it humming

With the happy buzzing of bees among blooms.

The many shades of cold

Since we’ve had fresh snow and sinking temperatures —

Down to minus 19 C this week —

I am inspired to show you the colours of cold.

Cold fog

Sometimes the cold is a golden fog,

Sometimes an intense orange framed by trees.

Freezing orange fog copy

When the dawn is really cold,

The fingers of the sun paint the treetops

With frosted red.

Cold and orange

My favourite winter colour

Has to be the diamond carpet of snow

Topped off by dazzling blue skies and sun —

It’s moments like these that lift my spirits.

Summer memories

Summer memories (from last year) —

Are made up of beauty like this.

How can you feel anything but humbled and grateful?

Frosted heron

Frosted boats in the early morning light.

A heron bows to the beauty of a crisp early morning

Before flying off

And lending its own poetry to the sky.
