Seen


A path, leading. Like any other path, road, walk, drive. Leading somewhere. Anywhere.
Pure decadence.

*****

I stopped. I finally stopped and pulled over. Camera poised to
capture the dogwood
Resting her image
so certainly on the stream below.

*****


So small. So tender. Pushing through the rough facade
and topography of its environs
Surviving. Reaching up.
Growing.


*****


Another storm rolling in. Charcoal layered on
rumbling thunder. The air held the pungent
familiar scent of impending rain.

*****


My dear friend's rockin' yellow rain boots.

*****


Blowing some magic bubbles into the air.

One day, maybe two weeks ago, we finally had a day
of sun and cornflower blue sky.
I took this photo through the sunroof
of my car.
It makes me smile.

This is just wonderful, Denise. Really, really beautiful.

Thanks so much - I feel like we went for a lovely walk in the woods... ahh!

And I thought I was the only one who takes photos through her sunroof!

Love to you...
