Our Host

no boundaries left

all one with nature, the universe

IMG_0298 seagulls deating clams

I am strolling on the sand watching a pair of geese feeding along the waters edge. They move like life partners, in unison, through feeding seagulls without a care. Reflection of the rising sun on the water is a wonder to behold. Gold, blue, green a shimmer of turcoise.
I walk along the pier enjoying the solice of the Sunday morning, photographing the shoreline and the scenery with the rising sun.


seagull pass overhead
drops his clam on the asphalt
swooped down for the feast

Did I just see what I saw? I’m stopped in my tracks. I look around. He chuckled I’m sure – yes, it’s just you!
He picked up the clam, glided over open water, gained altitude and from atop the pier, again he dropped it, and again swooped in to continue his feast. I am mesmerized.

“…….all creatures great and small…”

  6. making love
  7. seagulls

big bold sunflower
bowing after the rain storm
reflects in puddles

morning stroll on beach
skirting around breaking waves
holding hands – making love

seagulls squawk and dive
feast on rain storm’s new bounty
moves at lightning speed

in mountain garden
peony is in full bloom
nightingale’s solo
