Poems and Photo

pink clouds
span the horizon
seagulls take flight
stretching to read
new books

*

afternoon light
blue-grey skies
and water

give them a stage
to shine
seagulls

*

another day
of grace
settling down
towards sunset
seagulls rest on water

From Psalm 104

Psalm 104: 1 – 2

“Bless the Lord, O my soul.  O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.

Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain”

This is the poetry of the King James Version.

Poem from my February archives:

Spring will return
here and there
and then I’ll say,
“When did this happen?”
Today, though, I rest
in longer light
on evergreens
in a tiny bit of wind

The Light

The light was especially beautiful yesterday.  In the early morning, there were rays of light through layers of clouds.

For a moment later, the light on the cotoneaster branches looked like holiday lights.

In the afternoon, Karl and I went for a walk in the neighborhood.  The light through trees, falling on a creek, November gardens . . . all so beautiful.

This morning, I discovered some vintage postcards by Ellen Clapsaddle at Reusable Art.  This is one example:
