Let the joy flood in

Perhaps it’s just an ordinary leaf —

Dried up and ready to be thrown away.

But then again, perhaps not.

It’s a golden feather

And a dazzling heart.

After all, the holes are there to let the joy

And the light flood in.

In the pink

As the sun was rising in gorgeous pink tones,

The bare trees of November and the frosted ground

Cast beautiful reflections on the lake.

There is so much beauty

In the minimalism of a buoy stuck in ice

Buoy.jpg

And a float to keep us anchored

In case we fly away on the dreaminess of the

Stunning pink dawn.

Be still, my heart!

When the sun rises

And autumn leaves catch fire,

Catching fire.jpg

You can see copper flames

Reflected in the lake,

Autumn.jpg

And lemon lanterns

Lighting the way to winter.

The jetty

The geese flew away

Can you see them in the top left-hand corner?

Like falling leaves

Leaving behind the grey beauty of the jetty.

Misty jewels

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;

Pink mist

And to the left, an Impressionist painting

Of trees floating in the dawn.

Sunrise serenade

The sun breaks through

The early morning fog

Breakthrough

With a glorious

Golden hallelujah of light.

(Note to self: Let nothing dim the light that shines within.)

Rainbow wishes

The golden evening light of late summer

Transforms even the humblest of flowers

Into works of art:

Fluff

From downy pillows of fluff

To small wishes ready for take off.

And if you’re lucky,

You might even see a dandelion rainbow.

Holding up the sky

Inside iron, you can find velvet;

Inside the hard, a soft centre —

And in the petal, there resides

The strength to hold up the sky.

Swan Lake Abstract

Dazzling golden light

Dances on the lake,

Golden swan lake copy

While the swan

Sails majestically on ripples.

Golden ripples copy

As the sun sets and twilight descends,

Lake and swan

Become a beautiful abstract.

(Summer is a gorgeous time in ‘my’ backyard!)

I’m selling these shots as prints, posters, photos, bags and cushions on my Red Bubble site. * End of shameless self-marketing*

Softly spring

Spring dances in —

Two steps forward and one step back.

Frosty dawn

Frosted dawns

Give way to soft pink light.

Pink light

Blue skies are serenaded

By blur of wings and trees

Waiting to burst into bud.

Blur of wings

And winter leaves behind

A fragile reminder of its return.
