at the turn of clock, ontario lake is



gorgeous in blue
stirring the swans, ducks
& birds in flight

cool wind rocks sassy dance
with sky & shoreline
undulating in endless
churning waves & foam

spring arrives (here)
mapping seeds, vines & petals
tilting our faces to brighter days

  2. Tilting your face to the sun... you should see how that looks here in Sweden... the first day of sun you will see people in rows looking into the sun. Love the image of the lake being stirred.

  16. Like others, a lovely piece - I particularly liked the notion of 'mapping seeds, vines and petals' - drawn but not yet grown - and from the antipodes where it's autumn, thanks for 'spring arrives (here)'.
