Weirdo!

I have making coin rolls, trying for some order, when I found this little weirdo among the dimes. I have no idea what it is!

Paper Boats

Moving across parched earth

a ground level dust cloud drifts

With the same breeze comes the scent of rain.

It was the rainy season and

somewhere in the distance

a quenching was in progress

Soon, it will be time for that soothing rhythm on the tin roof

Soon, it will be time to secure a spot on the verandah and make paper boats for the puddles

Then scampering down the steps through large plopping raindrops to set sail the next paper boat

Paper boat sailing – in this family of four kids, a rite of passage.

Blush

I live near a pier. The only activity here is from the locals – a virtual united nations. No boats, no ferries and that is a good thing.

People come out to fish. But I’ve come to realize that this is less about fishing, and more about community. They come out for sunrise, sunsets and in between, picnics and barbecues on days spent by the water.

People are just people. And when we allow for that, we’re all the better for it.

sunrise off the pier

a very picturesque blush-

here, the earth meets sky

Life

after raging storm..

life returning to normal

new sand from ocean

now calmly hugging the shore

hosting footprints – till next time

Tanka Tuesday

atop the tree lines

against the bluest of skies

an altercation

mocking bird versus a crow

crow, unmoved – until he was

Flower Of The Day

A Bitter-Berry tree in my yard, highly fragrant blooms. It keeps getting taller. I thought it was a bush! For years it had been dwarfed by another tree that is no longer. Now it is thriving.
