For Nancy Merrill’s Photo a Week challenge: insects.
Amateur, I am, when it comes to photography. I’m excited to learn the ins and outs. This week, Nancy Merrill instructs on the rule of thirds. The featured image represents thistles leaning into the third.
This daffodils are leaning outside the boundaries, but there is something interesting about this shot to me.
Thanks Nancy Merrill for your A Photo a Week Challenge: Threes and Threes
My soul begs the reassurance of flow
an enchanted place along the river
a moment of solace where I can breathe
My heart glows at the sound of summer
children’s voices raised above the splash
of clear blue – refreshing memories.

A theme for our times.

For Nancy Merrill’s A Photo a Week: Just for fun.
Time stands still; we wait
the noise of speculation stark contrast
to the reality that confronts us
Where do we go from here
and what authority to trust
and in this imposed solitude
can we find the strength
of reflection, the courage
to follow an inner lead?
Snow lights up the night, adding a magical touch.

When I was ten, my family travelled to England to visit my father’s family. Grandmother gifted us this odd looking vase, something she claimed to be over a hundred years old. I inherited it when my mother went into a nursing home. Always a conversation piece.
This 1,000 year-old tree continues to thrive on Goose Island State Park in Texas. Is there a word for something older than an antique?

Love abounds with
Those eyes that watch
our every move,
(For Nancy Merrill’s A Photo a Week Challenge: eyes.)
The path before me titillates –
beckoning hues, rolling hills –
I set my lens on discovery.
My heart belongs to this land –
lush landscapes, and dynamic seasons –
here I’ll stay till shadows succumb to night.
