Autumn Fire/Winter’s Desire #1LinerWeds

IMG-1245

 

Stealing itself against the sharp edge of Winter,

waiting in silent anticipation of day’s end

Sun’s last cry of surrender to night strikes

her cold, hard body, as flint to steel..

 

IMG-1247

Igniting a spark, flicker of brilliance

setting Autumn’s fine petticoats on fire!

Watch her sway and burn with bright desire

to be caressed by his glow, kissed by his hot breath

as bitter darkness follows close behind.

But in that briefest of moments she blazes with glory,

they dance in fiery passion, embracing end of day

when azure skies and butterflies have gone away.

Promises are whispered in the shadow of delight

that while she sleeps he will keep the firelight

aglow.

She knows

his word is true.

“See you in the Spring, my lovely,” he whispers as he slips the petticoats from her

body and kisses her to sleep.

Do not weep.

She will return, together they will burn again in Spring.

Sunny. With a chance of hot. In the “Winter” of Costa Rica. Our cold months here are their most pleasant. Of course, in San Isidro most nights in the mountains are very cool to chilly.  But the days are hot, so it was best to be prepared when visiting…the ticas know how to stay cool.

Find a nice spot (La Reyna), order some beers ( yes, that IS ice) and maybe some food….

Simole and delish. Then watch the world roll by from the balcony. Oh! And you musn’t forget the entertainment.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. We spent at least one Thanksgiving in the land of Pura Vida. No, it is not easy to find a turkey there. But, frankly, it was the last thing on our minds…

When You Wish Upon a Star…

When I edited these photos of Zippy’s young one on the porch and saw the orbs in several of the photos, I was delighted. I just had to play with it some more.

I wonder what chipmunks would want from a fairy godmother. Couldn’t be cashews or tomatoes…they have had their fill of those!

New puzzle gift for the hubby from Son Number One. This one’s going to be a hum dinger. 1000 pieces with half of the pieces looking nearly identical. But…it’s Pink Floyd. Inspiration is  there. Maybe a little background music.

A very favorite of mine, from The Wall actually, but always a nice mellowing out tune. Happy Hump Day everyone.

Just a Closer Walk with Thee/Photography/#1LinerWeds

Being in Nature is the closest thing to worship that I can imagine.  In the presence of Creation I am humbled.  When I edited these photos, one of my Mom’s favorite hymns flashed through my mind.  And that is always my cue to listen.  I consider it her contribution to, and support of, my joy in capturing these moments of perfection.
