Sunset

IMG5367

mesmerizing setting sun

in panoramic skies
sitting low
turning day into twilight

gentle waves lap the shore
with gurgle of bubbles
smoothing fine sand
as the waves return
to its dance with the wind

 sun relfects on the sand
the horizon beckons
kissing the ocean’s surface

slowly she slips beyond the edge
then she is gone

relinquishing her hold
on mere mortals

still gazing in awe

FAIRIES

The hollow of tree trunk
A known gateway for fairies
She paused in pouring rain
Awaiting their appearance

This is how they took a
Bath she knew it had to be
But each time she blinked
Only a ripple did she see

She knew ripples were from the raindrops

They were drawing the fairies’ bath
So there she stood patiently
Waiting to see what she came to see

Twin Maples

forty foot maples
now free of leaves for autumn
readying syrup

gift steeped in nature
the smell of maple syrup
draining from tapped trunk

grand maple trees have
the smell of maple syrup
draining from tapped trunk
