I like the crisp cool mornings
that autumn days can bring,
With promise of a balmy day
to make my glad heart sing.
Today there was a morning fog,
though light as fairy mist,
I found the treasure that it brought
where the river had been kissed.
For all the beauty on it’s banks
had fallen and got wet.
The camera clicked, and clicked again,
So that I would not forget.
The calmness of the water, the stillness and clarity of the reflections, the blue of the reflected sky, the evidence of sunshine beyond the trees and in the foreground foliage,all give me a deep sense of serenity and peace.
Driving home almost on dusk, I saw these horses reflected in the pool where they were having their evening drink. I couldn’t resist stopping to record the lovely scene, although the light wasn’t good. A bonus was the two black swans on the water.
Autumn’s gifts are doubled
as water and sky
in a harmony
in my heart.
I want to dabble my feet as I sit on that rock
with a good book in my hand for an hour or so.
I love boats; the sight of them that is! Otherwise I am happy to keep far away from them as I don’t feel safe in them. So you can see that they easily raise emotions in me -of one kind or another. I guess I could say there is a mix of admiration, fear and apprehension. But I do love the picture they make, in motion or stillness
This photograph was taken from the solid and safe shore of the Huon River in Tasmania.
The sun fell into the puddle,
I saw it with my own eye!
So I quickly scooped it up
And placed it back in the sky!

Reflections caught in the Huon River,Tasmania
Huon River, Tasmania
The trees fall into the river,
There is never a sudden clash,
They slip gently onto the surface
Without the tiniest splash.
The mountains lie quiet in the river,
Till the surface is moved by a breeze,
When without a sound or a warning
They leave with eloquent ease.
