Lakeside Haven. 01710


If I could write my thoughts down
with the colours of the sky
what a palette one would see
all captured by my eyes.

Palest blues, pastel pinks
blend pelicans flying by
purple clouds as the sky unfolds
say ''Good Morning'' to our world.

Blink of an eye, the landscape colour
has changed from pinks to orange
as they meet together on horizon far
my eyes engulf with wonder.

Across blue lake of shimmering shades
of reflections cool and calm
are pelicans and commorants
fishing neighbours causing no harm.


Lakeside Haven. 05711

Commorants in their hundreds
paint a blackness through the sky
as the meeting place across the lake
sends ripples both low and high.

As we leave this lakeside haven
early morn, with a freshness on brow
I feel content, full of thoughts
that I'll try to capture now !

Lakeside Haven. 01711

Sue, your photographs are beautiful. I too am partial to nature's splendid variety. And your linking verses are filled with the splendor you see. Ah, I envy you some. There are so many beautiful places in the world, and you seem to have found one of the best. Good work. Thanks for sharing.
