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, […]

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 […]

Beyond the Drapes

I oft’  deny a few more precious winks, To rise from down-soft sleeping place, sublime. Beyond the heavy drapes, as night moon sinks, The light is changing with each tick of time. Feeling blindly, camera case inclined and leaning close aside the rattan chair, Tiptoe on carpet in the dark, resigned to leave the flip-flops […]

Aspects of Light

Brightly Lit:   I had a difficult time selecting a single photo to epitomize this week’s Photo Friday prompt, “Brightly Lit”. I soon realized that there are many, equally compelling  interpretations. *** Brightly Lit: Direct Light: The indescribably bright, white-hot flame flickering in a beachside fire pit.

Sibling Musings

Everything hurt! Yet there, beneath the sand, A calming sense of clammy warmth filled me, My brother piled it on, with scoop-filled hands, And devilish and unrelenting glee. Though buried deep, I knew how effortlessly, With burst of will and strength I could arise, But choosing, in its stead, to simply be, Enjoy the moment, […]

Acceptance

  Sitting on the dock of ‘Poly’ Bay, Scanning left to right and back again, Beaches where my grandsons freely play, Deep blue wavelets rippling on lagoon. Our fantasy vacation-land, like ‘Troon’, Is ever in our mind’s eye, winter long, When summer comes around, it’s none too soon, But on this trip we sing a different […]

Morning has broken!

Stillness settles in upon my soul Each dewy dawn before the world awakes, From distant towns and leas I hear the wave of waking birdsong welcoming the sun, Washing near as night skies fade away, The nightingale departs, his nocturne ends. Morning!

The Winding Path

“When did you know you were lost?” he asked (so wise), Since he’d been there and back, a long time yore he’d gone too far astray, his sad demise lay fossil-like: a starfish washed ashore. His journey was circuitous, yet sure of his intent, he forged beyond the seams, To sear the fabric, cutting to the […]

Floating Dock

Craving these misty mornings, Escaping to night-shattering dawn, Rocking to the gentle undulations, Sloshing soft on un-named lake lagoon, Beating a metronomic pulse: Soul-stirring. Treading barefoot on grainy planks, Leaving sleepy-land behind, Feeling safely tethered, yet free, Floating, yet (the rub) still captive, Vanishing, axing clumsy clutter: Conscience-clearing. Listening to waking wavelets lapping languorous against […]

White Heron Hopes

***************************** Milky plumage bright, Sadly reign o’er lush lagoon, Sunrise Point no more. ********** I took this photograph from the top of “Sunrise Point”, one sun-warmed morning at the Polynesian Village. I didn’t know then what this beautiful white heron may have sensed; that in the months to come, her regal outpost would be supplanted by noisy […]

This series of photographs is posted in response to the prompt “letters“. Upon first glance, these two photos, are a welcome banner and a logo on a cap.  For me, though, when I look at these photos,  I am instantly transported to the mountains of Sheffield Massachusetts, where each summer I participate in joyous music […]
