Photo: Taken at the beach on a end-of-summer day, hurricane was in the winds. As the waves swept back out to sea I got this shot. Very shiny!!

wind and rain
torturing young leaves
– bruised buds

mountain trail –
the silence broken
monk’s footsteps

river calms –
summer breeze hugs frame
as she strolls

snow atop
sparrow’s evergreen –
now, blue sky

Photo: Taken on the butterfly bush outside my window, a windy day.

misty rain
sprinkling young leaves..
tender buds

in mountain vistas
therapeutic silence..
a monk contemplates

sounds from the river
feel of balmy summer breeze..
she sits with eyes closed

before the first snow
sparrows feast on red berries..
gray replace blue sky

Echoes of My Neighborhood

This week my neighborhood is more suburban than urban. I am in the mountains breathing good air, and getting good sleep.

              last night the rains came
nature’s lullaby
dreams danced in childhood

image

                Twin maples, now bare

image

The smallest of the forsythia bushes, such curves.

image

Something was slittering through the crunchy ice

image

Remnants of fall long gone

image

That picnic table is doomed after many harsh winters

image

Old mini cabin holding secrets of tiny creatures

image

Crunchy snow and ice along upper edges of the creek

image

The winter sun was starting to set the light on the water was captivating.
