hard reflective winter mirror

no acceptance nor understanding

presaging her cold bitterness

if you’re fond of beaches and salty air

pretty seashells found everywhere

then someday I’ll take you there

Scenes on Sunday ~ First Light

By Dawn’s Early Light.

day’s aurora awakens, in first light blue

cold tranquil loneliness, still sea’s sibilance

solitary thoughts ever-changing, ever the same

Scenes on Sunday # 5

‘scape pictures.  Seascapes, cloudscapes, landscapes, cityscapes, roadscapes….

All the pictures were taken with a compact LUMIX Panasonic DMC-AS3 camera.  This camera is so small and smart I wonder why I’ve been carrying around about 10 pounds of photographic equipment…  I don’t photoshop these pictures.

These shots were taken in England, looking East, at or near first light.

Scenes on Sunday # 1

The first in what will be a regular Sunday Post of ‘scape pictures.  Seascapes, cloudscapes, landscapes, cityscapes….

All the pictures were taken with a compact LUMIX Panasonic DMC-AS3 camera.  The images are just as they were taken off the camera, not photo-shopped or messed with, (OK maybe cropped a little here and there).  The camera used has some cool built-in features, and these have been used, from time to time.

no matter how hard and diligently I try

I have never once understood her way

may as well attempt to comprehend the sky

or tame the mysterious seas along the bay

of course, she understands me, perfectly

but then, she is an empath

She Comes

tonight she comes

she travels the world

and now she comes

once more foaming curled

again and again she comes

fast and often she comes

and tonight she comes hard

Autumn Seascapes’ Sorrow

AUTUMN BEGINS ON SEPTEMBER 1st ~ OR MAYBE SEPTEMBER 22nd

Everyone knows that the seasons are each 3 months long, but on what date does each season start?  As the very wise are very fond of saying, that depends.  Some think that the autumnal equinox, (September 23rd), is mid-autumn.  In the UK we think that autumn begins on September 22nd ~ except when we use the easy methodology which says that autumn is the months of September, October, and November.  Back in the day autumn began when there was the first tinting of oak and beech leaves.  All I know is that it’s autumn in England now.

This is what the sea outside my front door looks like in autumn.

As it goes, whatever date you choose we are now about half-way through Autumn, (or Fall as our American cousins would have it).  It’s cool in England now, and on some days there is very little wind.

If you are lucky enough to live right on the coast of England, autumn produces some spectacular views.

light on the rocks

At times the autumn sea is like a winter mirror.  It’s then a pleasure to go down to the place I pray.  Some other days I wouldn’t venture onto the seafront walks at all ~ it’s too damn dangerous.  On a good day the sea helps me to dream in sorrow.

Dreams and Seascapes

Haunting music of the wind

wave counterpointed, pink sky echoed

Frames the seascape bowl with solitary figure walking

Against a world struggling, changing

but ever the same

Haunting music of the wind

wave counterpointed, azure sky echoed

Frames the Seascape bowl with solitary figure walking

Against a world struggling

changing, but ever the same
