Rain

Rain, Sitting here inside, Waiting for the skies to clear, Hoping our vacation isn’t smeared, And yet I see only Rain, Pouring down in sheets upon this sleepy calm lagoon, It’s time has come to drench this lovely cove with cleansing droplets; Rain, I’ll wait it out, Serenely know this pause, Precisely why I came, […]

Autumnal Conundrum

It’s autumn; as my planner oft repeats, It’s autumn; yet the warming sun rays beat It’s autumn; I’ll delay my pumpkin treats for mallows, crispy-squished ‘tween graham sweets. It’s autumn; yet we’re travel’ing to the beach, It’s autumn; backyard chairs remain in reach, It’s autumn; school’s in session (they’ll be teached); Or is it taught? […]

Textured Layers

While gliding on the resort launch on our way to the Magic Kingdom, my eye was initially drawn to the brilliant, white puffy clouds hovering against a perfect sky-blue sky, as the monorail zoomed across the spanse. I snapped this Photo. It wasn’t until hours later, when I scanned my images, that I realized I’d […]

Freeze-frame

I remember when I was a girl of five, And pretty, colored skirts were joyous things, We’d twirl upon our coffee-table stage, With shrieks and soaring screams, for we had wings. I hadn’t thought on that for many years, Until one summer day, we stood to wait at Main Street Station, for the Disney train […]

Rhapsody in Blue

I never tire of a clear morning when, while seeking a once-in-a-lifetime sunrise, I find, instead, a stunning, sparkling moon. This morning was particularly spectacular, as I could clearly delineate the crevices and crannies of the rocky moon surface. I didn’t see the man in the moon on this morning, but I know he was […]

Planning for the Future

Last Sunday, after having purchased a case of freshly picked Roma tomatoes at the Summit Farmers’ Market, I spent the rest of the afternoon, prepping and canning the luscious lot.  It was a messy, slippery, time-consuming afternoon, but most definitely, it was a labor of love.   Someday, in the middle of winter, I will open one or two jars of these beauties […]

Elevated

Rain is coming! (heavens are ablaze), Sailors warning! (still, I’ve fixed my gaze), Irma’s spinning! (warnings and delays), I will face her! (If she comes my way), Morning’s dawning! (storm clouds soon will raise).   WordPress: Elevate

Blurred Lines

Structure straight and perfectly aligning, A thousand stamens reaching for the sun, Each radiation delicate reminding We’re more than just ourselves, we are as one. From far perspective, branches tipped with pompons, Beckon to us: come survey our blooms, ‘Til closer in we scan the broad-leafed palm fronds, To spy their tender details, through my […]

White Egret

Amid the hustle and bustle of exiting the Magic Kingdom, we’d decided to forego the monorail that would whisk us back to The Polynesian Resort, for a balmy ride aboard the launch, which had just arrived at the dock. As we made haste to catch the launch, I was suddenly distracted by this beautiful, unhurried creature […]

Of Pearls and Scarlet Plumes

Before the golden fire-star breaks through, I stroll in search of glories yet unseen, Then I espy wee orbs of tenuous dew, Formed atop the tips of buds agleam. It may be that crimson color scheme distracts, and causes one to pass on by, Ignoring precious pearls, before sunbeams cast their rays and beckon dragonflies. […]

Elemental Web

She weaves her web, without regard or pause, She weaves, throughout the night, her realm secure She weaves, each morn we spy her lacy gauze, She weaves with glistened pearl drops, spawned from dew. Weekly photo challenge: Elemental
