One Single Impression: Melody

MELODY

Daylight waning,
Shadows falling.
Moon is rising,
Night winds calling.

Time drifts by
On silken wings,
Far and low
A song it sings.

It sings of love
And letters sent,
It sings of loss
And years misspent.

It sings of birth
As life begins,
It mourns as death,
Our journey ends.

It sings the melody
Of our lives
And sometimes makes us
Wonder why

We didn’t, when we
Had the chance,
Change the notes,
The refrain perhaps.

The past is gone,
It can’t be changed;
Look forward now
With knowledge gained.

Listen close in the
Hushed, still night
To the song of time
On its endless flight.

Photo Friday: The Great Outdoors

The prompt this week at http://www.photofriday.com is “The Great Outdoors”, so I chose this shot taken at Big Bull Falls last summer.  It’s one of my favorite places to go.  It’s beautiful there and very few people know about it.  Whenever I go I almost always have the place to myself.  I haven’t been there in quite awhile, and now that I’m thinking about it, I think maybe I’ll take a ride out there this weekend.

Summer Solstice

Ah yes, the summer solstice, the longest day of the year, and therefore, my favorite. I love the long days of summer. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like, as long as there’s lots of daylight. I finally got out on the lake in my kayak. As soon as I pulled into the boat landing I saw the rays of light streaming through the clouds, so I got out and took pics before I even got the kayak out of the truck. It was a perfect evening for kayaking; not too cold, not too warm, not too windy and no bugs. The first two shots are facing west and the last one is facing east.

Dragonfly

I took a walk in the woods this evening with the camera, though I wasn’t really expecting to find anything interesting.  I was wrong.  I found this dragonfly clinging to a daylily leaf.  It never moved the whole time I was taking pics, not even when I moved the leaf to shoot it from a different angle.  The mosquitoes, on the other hand, were very active and nearly dragged me away.
