The golden light of October
Is as sweet as honey.
LIfe is hectic around here again
And I’m away with work, so won’t be able to comment on your blogs.

Wide skies of
Red and purple
Invite us to drink
In the wonder and beauty of nature —
And, of course, if you’re a dog,
To take a dip in

Early morning —
And mist floats like a golden scarf
Over the lake,
Turning my world
Into a surreal painting made of light and sun.

Better than TV:
A stunning sunset show
Performed by Nature.

When we look at ourselves in the universe,
We are but a small and humble part of the whole.
But each move and turn we make
Creates its own beautiful pattern
And tiny ripples of kindness or wonder
Can be passed onto others to enjoy.

Watching a flock of birds
Dance across the fiery canopy of the sky
On flame-tipped wings;
And flying beyond the silver sliver of the moon
Is pure poetry.

Sometimes a sunset
Is so breathtaking
That all you can do
Is stand there humbled
And drink in all the wonder.

Henry David Thoreau once wrote, “You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.”
Many years ago, I woke up to an amazing sight:
Fields and fields
Of foamy clouds in the sky!
I had to stop and talk to those clouds
For a very long time.
(All photos from my archive of 2010.)

Last week saw freezing cold mornings followed by sunny afternoons.
The constant freezing and thawing
Created the most delightful pearl necklace made out of ice.
(I was amazed how a single strand could hold such a heavy load.)
Frost hung like jewels on the delicate strands of cobwebs —
Reminding us that the seemingly fragile
Can also show strength and endurance.

Back in October,
The sky turned lilac
And the water filled
With slender ribbons and hearts made of clouds.
And underneath all that splendour,
The ducks swam on purple velvet.
