Tutus in the sky

Call the clouds what you will:

Lilac tutus,

Boat in pink.jpg

Marshmallow fluff

Or pink candy floss.

They are still just as beautiful.

Living in a Japanese painting

Autumn has been and gone over here —

But I’m reliving some of the leafy beauty still.

One morning, I passed the local kindergarden

And noticed the maple leaves glowing

In the pink sunrise. They were stunning.

Hiking out into the countryside

A lovely pastoral scene unfolded,

Making me feel as if I were living

Inside a Japanese silk painting.

Big drama

I love dramatic skies —

When layers of clouds

Looks like threatening mountains,

Clouds and mist

And come crashing down

In rolling veils to land beautifully

On a reflecting lake.

Swan lake – with mist

A chilly morning dawned

Bringing out the colours of the leaves

And the swans.

Misty swans

They appeared out of the mist

Like feathered ships.

Feathered ships

The sun bursting through the trees

Placed stripes of light on the swan’s neck.

Swan stripes

Closer and closer the swan sailed

Beautiful in the lilac dawn.

Peace, returned

Canoe believe how beautiful the sky is —

With pastel swirls and the lone paddler?


Pinks and purples colour the lake,

Making the drops of water from the paddle glow like jewels.

Water drops

After a while, the ripples fade,

The sky grows darker and more beautiful,

And peace returns.

Glowing sunset

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.

The invitation

Wide skies of

Red and purple

Wide skies

Invite us to drink

In the wonder and beauty of nature —

Sunset lake

And, of course, if you’re a dog,

To take a dip in

Rose-tinted water.

Surreal gold

Early morning —

And mist floats like a golden scarf

Over the lake,

Golden mist copy

Turning my world

Into a surreal painting made of light and sun.

Sunset boulevard

Better than TV:

A stunning sunset show

Performed by Nature.

The ripple effect

When we look at ourselves in the universe,

We are but a small and humble part of the whole.

Wide skies

But each move and turn we make

Creates its own beautiful pattern

Duck 1

And tiny ripples of kindness or wonder

Can be passed onto others to enjoy.
