Cloud on the Inlet

I wanted to get in a good exercise walk today and when I looked out my window, I saw that there was a cloud sitting on the inlet.  It was pretty cold, front steps were icy and slippery, but it was going to be a sunny day as there was sun everywhere else so I figured it would either be a walk in total fog with no views or the sun might burn it off.

Got in the car and motored down the hill to corner of Moody and St John’s.  Parked there and walked the rest of the way to Rocky Pt park and continued around the inlet as planned.

I was not disappointed!  Although on the way to my turn around at Orchard Beach, all the boardwalks were frosted and slippery, on the way back, most of them had defrosted as the sun did come out.  And there was opportunity for some spectacular images, IMHO.

So here you go.  Enjoy

My Everchanging View

The view from my windows is ever changing with the season and is often very beautiful.  Here’s what it looked like a little while before all the leaves fell off and after an early dash of snow.

Isn’t my little part of the world a beautiful place.  8 =)

Our Tree

Then

untamed,

riotous unruly red maple

recklessly abandoned.

fall-maple-2

Supreme, unchallenged, with gaudy intentions,

a feast of sensual delights, if somewhat overbearing,

rapturously shedding scarlet.

Action

Climber, knife, saw, care full cuts delimiting shape,

trim beauty, revealing clandestine symmetry.

Now

Delightful delicate revelation

adorned softly in crystal white.

Winter’s stark perfection,

surreptitiously awaiting sprigs,

with time’s

ever hopeful renewal.
