Poppy Opening

Poppy Opening

Poppy petals unfold,

their crinkly wrinkles.

Laundry on a summer line.

Sun-kissed and fresh.

Moving gently with the breeze,

these frocks of orange.

Happy Summer Solstice.

Sprout question: How might you celebrate summer solstice?

Winter Solstice on the islands

These images are from the shortest day before the darkest night with a lunar eclipse on Winter Solstice.

I find great comfort in their deep dark soft peace.

The hush of low light brings its own beauty.

The light of day begins to length as we pass through to deepest point of darkness.

 

 

Sprout question: Where do you find light in the darkest of darks?

Winter Evening

Rain and warm winds play and sing through the night. There had been a wind warning but nothing came of it. I wake at 4:20 am. Dawn is hours away as we near winter solstice. I must decide what to post. Thinking I will use another of my blue sky images I open the photograph folder. I stop over photos I had taken on the evening of November 20, 2010. I never went any further.

Looking over Georgia Straight to Vancouver.

Then south east a bit the light had faded even further. It was a full moon.

 

Sprout question: What is the softest point of reflection for you today?
