Fire in the sky

The sun goes down —

Not quietly

Firedog.jpg

But in a fierce splash of red.

A bird floats across the sky.

Fire can also be peace.

The heart of the snow

This is a snowy post —

(Sorry about the pun),

Posts.jpg

Where splashes of red and white

Look like Santa’s hat;

Red+snow.jpg

And snug houses

Are framed by snowy branches.

And, if you’re lucky,

You might find the heart of winter.

Hidden gems

One of my walks takes me past fields, lake and a camping site.

I discovered this shower, with the last summer drop

Frozen into place.

Forging into the woods,

I find a truck with shiny rims.

The sunlight picks out

The red of a hidden cottage

And draws my eyes to this

Picture perfect barn.

Autumn, leaving

Autumn is all about change and leaving

In flamboyant style.

Red

This is Ruby, as red as the leaves on the trees.

She has left us temporarily.

Ruby

Why? Because she is expecting

Puppies any day now.

Can you see her round tummy?

Ruby pregnant

I’ll miss her sorely

But my young goofball Simmie

Teaches me that there is a lot to be happy about.

Simmie

I go with the flow

And try to remain young at heart.

Autumn joy

Autumn is a time

Of flamboyance;

Flamboyant

When anything is possible —

Like flaming leaves glowing in the light of the rising sun

On an outdoor barbecue.

Barbecue

And, of course, it’s a time

For play in the autumn leaves

(This is Ruby.)

Autumn joy

And the exuberance of a swim

Amid the autumn joy.

(This is my goofball, Simmie.)

Chasing planes

My daughter and I were enjoying a beautiful sunset together a few days ago —

And she was practising using my ‘big’ camera

When we suddenly saw a floating line of geese.

Birds

They seemed to be chasing an airplane.

Chasing

The geese flew away over the trees

And the plane flew right on up to infinity.

Poetry

Watching a flock of birds

Birds 1

Dance across the fiery canopy of the sky

On flame-tipped wings;

On fiery wings copy

And flying beyond the silver sliver of the moon

Is pure poetry.

Fly me to the moon

Hot red chili pepper skies

Chili peppers are measured in Scoville units,

With the spiciest pepper in the world scoring over two million Scovilles.

I think these red hot clouds would also score highly, don’t you?

Hot red chilli

And what better way to enjoy a vibrant sunset

Than with a good furry friend!

Sunset with a friend

Breathtaking

Sometimes a sunset

Is so breathtaking

Basketball copy

That all you can do

Is stand there humbled

Exhiliration

And drink in all the wonder.

Catching fire

The early morning sky caught fire

And spread its blaze of glory

To the mirror of the lake.
