Ducks ahoy

It’s not often you get to enjoy

The Manhattan skyline with ducks (and a big cruise ship).

If you get up before the crack of dawn,

And drive to the New Jersey shoreline

(These shots are taken from Hoboken),

You may be lucky enough

To enjoy the gold of the rising sun

As ducks wheels in the sky

Over wooden pilings

Before honking farewell

As they fly away.

Rainbow miracles

Sometimes, the miracle of a cold winter sky

Isn’t the return of the sun itself —

Peeking sun.jpg

But the way it shines

On frosted branches

Rainbow suns.jpg

To transform the world

Into millions of glittering rainbow suns.

Snowy memories

At the moment, it’s grey and not particularly pretty out.

I do like grey skies, however,

Especially when they are laden with snow!

There is something magical about not seeing the sky

And being able to enjoy the dancing snowflakes (and a puppy) instead.

Of course, it’s even better if the sun breaks through the clouds

Just before disappearing behind the hill.

Summer burst

Summer sun –

Bursting into

Golden flowers.

Sunburst

The great big

Hallelujah of the sun

Sunburst 1

Bursting out into song

Over rooftops and trees

Gives me energy.

Sunburst 2

Even the melody of the setting sun

In the city a couple of weeks ago

Sang a beautiful tune.

Golden bowl

A magical May sunset

Dazzles,

Golden sunset

Embracing water and duck

In glitter,

Bright sunset

And the golden bowl of the sun

Is caught in a fiery net of trees.

Chasing the light

The skies over the past few weeks have been grey —

So I’ve been chasing down the light.

I found it framed in golden fog

Hanging over the lake;

Framed

It danced over the football field

On fairy rainbow feet.

Snow rainbow

And, there – at last –

Like a cold winter flower

It blossomed in rays of light.

Rays in trees

A bench in the sun

As the sun sets in a blaze of glory,

There is no better place to watch the play

Of cloud and light

Than on a bench in the setting sun.

Sun star

When the sun shines

And twinkles like the star it is…

That can only mean one thing:

The ice has melted

And the lake is now a golden bowl of water.

Golden moments

“Let the beauty we love be what we do. 
There are hundreds of ways to kneel and kiss the ground.”

My daughter and I are off to New York to seek adventure and golden moments.
I won’t be able to visit you all for about a week, but do pop in again as I have a scheduled post for you in a few days.
