The Dunes

“Let my toes teach the shore
how to feel a tranquil life
through the wetness of sands

Let my heart latch the door
of blackness, as all my pain
now blue sky understands”
― Munia Khan

Oasis To My Soul

An oasis with water is cool to my skin 
Giving such shade from the heat of the day
Lets me rest from the world’s loud din

So is your love this way for my soul
A breathe of fresh air and a sweet melody
 Touches my heart, making me whole©

The Pond

The Pond

Pond glimmering
Ever shimmering

Glass breaks
Water wakes

Line cast
Ripples last

Dock creeks
Lore speaks

Man fought
Trout caught

Large fish

Take It All In

This is the time of year that I adore. The temperatures have become mild and I can enjoy the outdoors without wilting. Don’t get me wrong, summer is my favorite for many reasons, but I really like the fall here in the South. Although I miss the autumn colors of the northern trees, I would much rather have these amazing temperatures.

Many birds return to the South now that up north is getting chilly. One in particular that is my favorite, the Swan. In town there is this lovely pond, a favorite spot to ducks, geese and swans. Pairs can be seen side-by-side, fishing with tail feathers up or just floating along. I was out this week and got a few captures. I hope you enjoy taking it all in as much as I did.

Idle About Town

“Landscapes of great wonder and beauty lie under our feet and all around us. They are discovered in tunnels in the ground, the heart of flowers, the hollows of trees, fresh-water ponds, seaweed jungles between tides, and even drops of water. Life in these hidden worlds is more startling in reality than anything we can imagine. How could this earth of ours, which is only a speck in the heavens, have so much variety of life, so many curious and exciting creatures?” ~Walt Disney Company

Nature’s Beauty

The Hibiscus is my favorite of all flowers. I enjoyed finding these and photographing them. I hope that you enjoy this wonder of nature’s beauty as much as I do!
