Haiku for May (an early spring’s day) Though shown just in Spring Flowers by the bunch dazzle Still hold much power
I love this time of year! Everything is so fresh and green, almost a perfect lime green with all the little new leaves coming out. These were taken along our river greenway system again just this morning. The green of the plants was so intense even the reflections in the water looked green. The two Canadian geese looked like they were sitting on green glass! I hope everyone has a pleasant and blessed day. Praise God!
I took my husband out walking on the greenway system this Christmas Eve. He is recovering nicely from his strokes, but he is starting his treatments for the cancer. He loves to walk outside along the river.
We were blessed enough to see a Great Blue Heron, and I could not help but think of Christmas Dinner. This poor guy has to really work for his. I hope he eventually caught what he was looking for. I hope everyone who reads this post will enjoy their Christmas, and may God Himself, the only living, breathing Creator Lord bless all your days!
Air Dancer Long, luxurious limbs Dancing, elegant Stripped of all summer’s green finery evidencing once again that simplicity may be more beautiful Lithe and lovely on this cool winter’s day Glistening white skin shows so well Of your graceful beauty it beckons to tell To pleasure us, we mere mortals More beautiful than myriad dancers on Any stage Among winter’s cold breath your limbs Twist, turn & sway In time to a music only you can hear At the water’s edge I watch then Shed one small tear Over your beauty so exquisite My words would never do it justice Oh, the joy God must have felt Watching your lightest steps Above the solid firmness of His ground!
The part of the south I live in gets so green and lush, and I can never resist a beautiful day to take pictures. We finally got some relief from the heat where I live so I rode along the greenway as I often do. Don’t know the names of all the wildflowers, but they are still blooming although for a day or two because it has been so dry with no rain, they did droop just a little. This monster of a tree is just that, a monster. It is huge. I can’t tell if it is more than one tree growing close together or if it is old and just split at its base.
The river is lower from less rain and in some spots is only a few inches deep. In the shallow parts, the water is so clear you can see every stone and fish in it. It’s lovely! May God, the Creator of all this beauty, bless your day!
Got to play around with some filters on my camera I didn’t even know I had. I stumbled on them accidentally. So I took some extra shots on different filters of the landscapes around our greenway system. Hope you enjoy your weekend and may God bless your day!
