October Sky

The October sky over the sea is captured here in my photos. It is this moody October beauty that inspired the poem I share with you today...







,

Sea Lace and Mudflats

Beneath the endless, cloud-filled,
Pink-tinged sky,
Reflections and shadows
Make a pattern of sea lace
On the mudflats' low tide.

.

Reflective

Heavy with clouds,
And still cold as the night,
October morning...
At first light,
The sky
Spills into the ebbing tide.

Seasoned

Time and seasons are in rhythm
With the rustic land.
Rough carved from salt wind,
Life here
Is lived by the whim of sea and sky.

Beneath the Sky

Time is the measure of the tide...
And I, just a humbled
Watcher of the sky...
Am silenced by a lifetime of wonder
As it passes by.

Just in awe of the clarity and beauty of these photographs, the photographic detail is perfection... just as close to being there in person, accompanied by such lovely
