Tutus in the sky

Call the clouds what you will:

Lilac tutus,

Boat in pink.jpg

Marshmallow fluff

Or pink candy floss.

They are still just as beautiful.

Swan lake – with mist

A chilly morning dawned

Bringing out the colours of the leaves

And the swans.

Misty swans

They appeared out of the mist

Like feathered ships.

Feathered ships

The sun bursting through the trees

Placed stripes of light on the swan’s neck.

Swan stripes

Closer and closer the swan sailed

Beautiful in the lilac dawn.

Peace, returned

Canoe believe how beautiful the sky is —

With pastel swirls and the lone paddler?


Pinks and purples colour the lake,

Making the drops of water from the paddle glow like jewels.

Water drops

After a while, the ripples fade,

The sky grows darker and more beautiful,

And peace returns.

Sunset boulevard

Better than TV:

A stunning sunset show

Performed by Nature.

Stained glass petals

Spring is all about

The glowing sun of flowers,


Where crocus petals

Drink in the rays

Crocus in light

To reveal silhouettes

Of their secrets.


I love the way the petals and shadows

Create mosaics like stained glass windows, don’t you?

Sometimes a sunset

Is so breathtaking

That all you can do

Is stand there humbled


And drink in all the wonder.

Tiny beauties

A sure sign of spring

Are the tiny lilac beauties (wood anemones)

Blooming in the woods.

Bright petals

You can’t but help feel happy

When you see their merry heads

Nodding on the forest floor.

Purple and blue

Their petals become paper thin

In the sunlight.

paper thin

I notice a dry leaf glowing

Like a stained glass window.


These flowers are protected in the Stockholm region

So you’re not allowed to pick them.

I’m happy about that —

As their beauty remains for all to enjoy,

Spread at our feet like a blanket of dreams.

When a storm draws in

With curtains of cloud,

Stormy sky

It’s time to enjoy

The drama of the sky.

Postcards from February

The skies in February

Ranged from peaceful snowy scenes

Snowy scene

And my favourite kind of sparkle —

Hoar frost in the early setting sun

Hoar frost sky

To the jackpot of frosted branches

And gently falling snow.

Lilac memories

Back in October,

The sky turned lilac

Purple ribbon

And the water filled

With slender ribbons and hearts made of clouds.

Ribboned sky

And underneath all that splendour,

The ducks swam  on purple velvet.

Ducks on velvet
