Trying to keep it light…

I’ve been out and about, enjoying what already feel like the waning days of summer. Here are a few recent small moments captured in photos and poems.

Turtle bathes in lily pad
under summer blues he
kicks his legs a little bit…
instant pond jacuzzi!

a cluster of berries
plumped to picking size
beneath warm summer skies
conceals a big surprise!

one cautious eye
takes in the world
ponders when
or whether
to venture forth

    The turtle seems so relaxed. I love the “instant pond jacuzzi” line. The cautious eye required a closer look for me. It was great how the poem made me pay more attention to the detail in the photo. Your eye is as sharp as his is cautious.
