Autumn makes me rich
As it leaves its golden coins on the shore of the lake.
Misty pastel pinks
Blend with lilac clouds and autumn trees.
I stand in awe and drink in the wonder.

Living near a new part of the lake
Gives wide views from stony cliffs.
Ruby glows among the autumn leaves
As she jumps up on a big rock that is more than 2 metres high.
Simmie prefers to camouflage himself
Among the yellow lanterns of leaves.
A leaf shines
Like a ruby;
And the brilliance of a fallen leaf
Reflects onto rock like molten gold.

And tinges everything pink:
As the sun rises
We enjoy a moment of rose-tinted serenity.
The view from my new part of the lake
Is simply stunning on an early morning, don’t you think?

Autumn is a good time for the deer:
One minute you only see fields,
And the next minute, the deer are there.
Their dance is perfectly synchronized:
Eyes front …
(And look surprised).
And enjoy the golden light of autumn.

A couple of weeks ago, we got the news that our beloved jetty (where we used to live)
Had been removed because it was old and rickety.
That was part of its charm:
We loved the way it curved and warped and bent;
The way it seemed to stretch out to infinity.
It was a big part of the children’s childhood —
Peaceful moments under big skies;
And it was there I enjoyed so many moments
With a best furry buddy.
RIP, dear old jetty – you will be missed!
(Luckily, I took a lot of photos of my favourite place
So there are still plenty to share with you.)

September has been magically warm.
One evening, my daughter and I went down to the lake
For a sunset swim.
The dogs dived in for joy
While the sun cast its orange glow
On water and stone.
For more doggone good times, please visit: Skywatch.
Standing on the edge of the lake,
The water as calm as a mirror,
I spot swans
On the other side
And a bridge floating
Among luscious green reflections.

Sunrise and it’s the autumn equinox:
The lake is still and beautiful
With rising mist in shades of pink.
The moon admires itself in the water –
Reflecting brightly like a silver penny.
(I’ve forgotten my big camera —
But as the saying goes, “The best camera is the one you have with you.”)
For more mist-erious shots, please visit: Skywatch.
It wouldn’t be summer
Without an excursion down to the lake
And a hot air balloon
Floating away over lilac
For more gorgeous sights, please visit: Skywatch.
Enjoy the view.
Throw out the line
And catch a beautiful
(Lots of events planned over the next coming days, so I won’t be able
To visit your blogs. But thanks for your visit!)
