GIFTS

First light over Great Central Lake

first light tiptoes on foggy cloud-feet
as the mist burns away
the  gifts of the day will be revealed




the trees tip back their heads
and drink deeply of October's rain -
relief at summer's end


Sunset over Sproat Lake
from Heart of Vancouver Island

though sunsets happen far from me,
beyond my sight,
I remain ever grateful
that they exist at all

Blood Moon
Sidney Observatory, Australia

in darkness, I look up
to admire your most perfect beauty,
and you light my way

  1. There really are so many gifts that nature has given us. Light alone is a wonderful gift, as you have expressed. And the beauty of the moon's light is difficult to surpass!
