ensnared in ancient roots

emerge together
sunny afternoon

Butterfly

uncoiling tongue
silent black swallowtail sips
ummingbird nectar

red admiral lands
deftly on Echinacea’s
spiny center

tiger swallowtail
joins the hummingbirds
in the mimosa

Haiga

 

spiderweb

sunlit  spiderweb
each strand catching
a rainbow

sakura

sakura festival
trees and lake adorned
in shades of pink

Twilight

Carpe Diem #1060 twilight

twilight
white flowers unfurl
awaiting the moon

 

twilight
a shooting star
blazes the horizon

 

~~~

 

in the twilight
our elongated shadows
stretch behind us

Wisdom

Carpe Diem #1058 wisdom

wisdom

autumn afternoon
wisdom of the ages
spills from trees

Harvest Moon

Carpe Diem 1059   Harvest Moon

 

harvest moon
bearing down on us
shouting for attention
once in a blue moon we notice
our impact upon nature

IMG_1355.JPG

full harvest moon
awakening primal urges
amber light flows
together in the crisp air
we howl at the moon

Blossoms

Carpe Diem #1050 blossoms

one last blossom
kisses summer goodbye
autumn rose

Carpe Diem #1048 stones

Couldn’t decide which version I liked better.  (This was 10 years ago)

mini_inukshuk_by_ch3rrypi3

stacks of stones
lining the garden
inukshuk
my daughter’s contribution
to our Inuit studies

       ~~~

pile of stones
in middle of the garden
fallen inukshuk
remembrance of my daughter’s
Inuit studies
