The Tapestry of Time

The seasons are a tapestry of changing hues woven by the precious threads of time...

The Wings of Clouds

In this intense blue on winter’s day
With the shore below
The sunlight on the snow
Bold and sparkling-

I think of the wind on a fall day,
The clouds like wings swoop in low...

Autumn Light

Brisk and bright the autumn light plays 
On the ocean waves,
And the leaves blow
In a red and yellow flurry.
That amazing array of color
Spills down the banks 
Unto granite-gray rocks.

Whispered Memories

Seasons and memories
The rhythm of years intertwined,
Blending hues, the tapestry of time…
A mere whisper in the winter wind.

Shelia thank you, my secret told :0)all three poems are really just one poem,I name the sections so I can display 3 pictures...:0)...But I must agree-the last has the most haunting picture- there is just something about those clouds and the water that stirs the soul.. Shelia I am just back from the store and making a cup of tea...wish we could have a chat and a "cuppa"..I will just have to drink two..LOL

Wonderful, Delicia: Thanks so much. In your first picture, I think there is a UFO on the top right-hand side.

I am a fisherman at heart well from a bygone era anyhow, but every time I see Mikes photos of the bay or the clam digger wading in the shallows, I get an overwhelming urge to bait up, cast in and catch a whopper for my evening supper. Thank you for succeeding in always stirring up my good emotions through your work Delicia.
