Winter ribbons

Winter doesn’t always dazzle;

Sometimes it is simply enough

To offer ribbons of light and soft colour.

Deep purple

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.

Dawn.jpg

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.

Paws for thought

13 December is Lucia – one of my favourite times of year.

Lucia is all about children dressed in white and carrying candles

To symbolize hope and light in the darkness.

The dawn that day didn’t disappoint either.

It blazed with light and colour,

So that dogs (and people) seemed small and humble

Under the huge lilac sky;

And paw prints were etched across a purple

Canopy of snow – leading the eye

To that glorious sky of hope.

Lilac wonder

Autumn makes me rich

As it leaves its golden coins on the shore of the lake.

Pink sky.jpg

Misty pastel pinks

Blend with lilac clouds and autumn trees.

I stand in awe and drink in the wonder.

Into the lilac forever

It wouldn’t be summer

Without an excursion down to the lake

Balloon.jpg

And a hot air balloon

Floating away over lilac

And purple.

Photobombing fun

It’s tulip season again — and it’s always

Lovely to bring spring inside when it’s still winter outside.

Ruby wanted to get in on the action

And provided a warm, fuzzy background for the tulips.

Now it was time to photograph Ruby,

But the tulips had other ideas and decided

To photobomb her! 😉

(Or maybe it was just me having fun with different focus points.)

Then Simmie decided it was unfair

That he wasn’t in the pictures,

So he muscled in on the action,

Photobombing Ruby.

The language of trees

Trees are like Nature’s poems

To the sky:

They take on the tint

Of a lilac dawn;

Dawn trees.jpg

Even in the middle of winter

They surprise with sudden green

In the snow.

Green canopy.jpg

And deep in the woods,

I was lucky enough

To breathe in the beauty

Of abstract tree trunks

Looking like a beautiful picture.

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?

Canoe_sunset

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.
