The blue beyond

The spring equinox is when day and night are equally long:

A perfect balance that was reflected in the azure blue

Of open water and the white cold of the ice still left on the lake.

Even the clouds seemed to find harmony

In their own reflections.

As for that bluer than a jay’s wing sky —

All I could do was to stand and gaze in wonder.

Into the beyond

One of my favourite early morning sights

Was the old jetty

Stretching into the beyond.

(I’m away all weekend so won’t be able to visit your blogs.)

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.

The ghost of Christmas past

All our snow melted and we ended up having a green Christmas.

This is nothing new – I found these shots of my dear, departed Oscar

About to enjoy a Christmas Eve swim under a canopy

Of perfect reflections from a few years ago.

A timely reminder that there is beauty

And  joy and light in the world.

Of lilac and gold

When the dawn is ablaze in lilac

And the rising sun paints the treetops gold…

The result is just breath-taking!

(I have a crazy busy week ahead of me

So won’t be around much.)

Pink heaven

As the temperatures drop,

The colours in the sky intensify.

Pink view.jpg

When the ice reflects back

The perfection of a pink and lilac dawn,

Oh buoy.jpg

You know you’re lucky enough

To be enjoying a slice of heaven.

Cloud swirls

The world changes so rapidly.

Only last week, it was beautiful autumn

And time for swimming in clouds.

The ripples of our actions

Have far-reaching effects,

So it’s wise to act with kindness.

Ripples.jpg

Even a misty and cloudy sunrise

Brings hope and beauty.

Pumpkin skies

Two autumn sunrises:

One blazing across the sky as dogs frolic in the early morning;

Sunrise.jpg

The other breathing serenity

In gorgeous light.

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.

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.
