Purification

12 March, 2018

a skiff tied to a willow
waiting to rush downriver
to the sea

winter’s ice relents
vast arterial network
lifeblood of the land

watery spell
filling springs and rivers
cat watches raindrops

raindrops like jewels
glisten in pure white light
on dark naked twigs

winter fire
a branch of sage lit
smoke for purification

wide flowing river
rooted tree grows tall and wide
eco-system thrives

Methuselah Bristlecone Pine
thousands of years old
its California home a secret

secrets discovered
steam, ice, droplets; growing land,
tall trees, lush pastures …

Dragonscale Portraits 20170506

5 June, 2017

As the photograph of Joey seemed to go down well back in February (record number of comments in just 1 day!) I’ve decided to post another of my photographs.
This one was taken on the beach and it is real. I have not photoshopped it at all!
I could not believe that the seaweed looked like an embroidered heart! What are the chances of finding something like that again?

green grass
flaxen rushes
windswept wetlands – fresh air
breathe in land and sea, feel
freedom

veiled trees, swirling droplets, white mistiness that rises, evaporates to reveal purple-red tipped branches and far away sunlight on the silver sea
