I haven’t had time to upload and go through my holiday photos yet,
So thought I’d share what makes summer so special.
It can be a stunning swan sunset,
Or a bee pollinating a poppy.
It is the discovery
Of flowers wearing wigs,
And the pink fireworks
Of an onion flower.

Life is busy with deadlines, work
And enjoying the beauty of summer,
So I won’t be able to visit your blogs this week.
Green was the silence, wet was the light,
the month of June trembled like a butterfly….

Dazzling golden light
Dances on the lake,
While the swan
Sails majestically on ripples.
As the sun sets and twilight descends,
Lake and swan
Become a beautiful abstract.
(Summer is a gorgeous time in ‘my’ backyard!)
I’m selling these shots as prints, posters, photos, bags and cushions on my Red Bubble site. * End of shameless self-marketing*

On a carpet of burnished gold
Swims a swan
In the dancing light
Of a shimmering sunset.
For more bedazzling posts, please visit: Skywatch.
Sometimes the silence and the grey
Descend so softly
That you can almost hear the peace of the cloudy reflections.
Later on, the moody skies
And the old jetty seems to stretch out
Towards the swans
Dancing on the edge of infinity.
For more moody skies, please visit: Skywatch.
I heard a huge flapping of wings.
A swan flew by so close that I thought
I could just reach out a finger
And touch one of its glorious feathers.

After days and days of snow and rain,
The air is washed clear
And ready to receive the golden bowl of the sun
As it rises into the blue
Dawn of a new day.
For more peaceful scenes, please visit: Skywatch.
A swan glided by.
The sun kissed the water with
Its diamond lips.
My heart was full of light.
In the right light, at the right time, everything is extraordinary. ~Aaron Rose

I’m off to enjoy some sun-dazzled times of my own with the family this week — in Disneyland, Paris. Oscar will be with friends, and my blog and I will be taking a rest. See you on Friday!
