Pair of Love Birds

You look lovely, dear
And so do you, mon amour
Intimate language

Like an ice cube tray
Now filled with frozen people
Chilly reception

Scarlet Maples

Flying maple leaves
Flitter through the dark forest
Flock of scarlet birds

Lake Wanaka

We on aerie perch
Ready to fly, spread our wings
Birds of a feather

Lost Secret

Oh, it was nothing
A smile behind her fingers
Hiding in her eyes

The Artist at Work

If there is a photo I took on the trip to Gun Lake, BC
that captures the spirit we found, this may be it

Amid the beauty
She applies paint to paper
Lake and mountains pose

Extrude Filter

Is my perspective
The same as yours? Do you see
Myriad colours?

Victorian style
Artwork of another age
It’s in the details

Colours of Autumn

Tiny yellow leaves
So perfect in size and shape
Etched with crimson veins

Puzzling World

I’ve just been thinking
So did Albert, I suppose
It’s all relative

The paint was still wet
Art of gracious homemaking
Crackled memory

Time for a Cuppa

The kettle is worn
The cups are all different
The tea? Delicious

City Scapes 31

Mere repetition
Strains me to offer haiku
I find no warmth here

Clay Cliffs 4

Jagged lines and smooth
Layered to the horizon
Wind howls at my back

Across Lake Wanaka

Across wide waters
We came here in reverence
Our pilgrim’s landing

Butterfly Wings

Nubile lips promised
Face that launched a thousand wings
Moths to this candle

Bow Riders

Pod of Porpoises
Swim in pursuit of pleasure
Ply the aqua sea

On a business cathedral
Different worship

In earth tones for green actors
Theatre for the eyes

Enemies we be
Just inhuman statistics
Each to the other

The box, when opened
Looses the hatter’s madness
Unfettered party

Kitten is alert
Hears a mouse behind the wall
Charming predator

We three pyramids
Made with new materials
But ancient design

Yonder arroyo
A good place for an ambush
Tread lightly, my friend

Dawn, Lake Wanaka

Snow in summer time
A blanket yet unmelted
Covers mountain peaks

Enthroned securely
I deign to tell your fortune
The leaves are murky

Moon over Shanghai

The Chinese lantern
Hung over bustling city

A silent presence

Traveling to Gold Bridge, BC today
(Population: Approximately 41)

and be staying at the Highland Cream Resort
Weather Link

Steeplejacks shinny
Places where no one else would go
I can see my house

Clay Cliffs 5

Traveling to Edmonton, Alberta today
So there is a weather gizmo to compare temps

I lift up my eyes
This jingle-jangle morning
Stretch and greet the day

Puzzling World

Measure twice, cut once
If I got the angle right
Oops, back to square one

Once upon a thought
I wandered so far away
I could see myself
