Who Am I?
And yet another nature poem from several years ago. I do love nature.
Who Am I?:
Dark is the night,
Bright is the day,
Rolling are the hills,
Rocky are the mountains,
Swift is the wind,
Gentle is the breeze,
Dark and bright,
Rolling and rocky,
Swift and gentle,
I sweep by,
I hover you,
I fly by you,
I am of this world—and not of it,
I show it to you with the light,
And I protect you.
Magics of the Skies
Another nature poem from several years ago.
Magics of the Skies:
Lightning lights the sky,
The clouds darken terribly,
Oh my, oh my!
One of my nature poems written several years ago.
The winds of time blow through the land,
The water of ages past rushes along its many rivers and streams,
The oceans and seas rise and fall—they cast their occupants about,
The sun beats down,
The moon glows bright white,
Nature’s people rush here and there for a storm comes on,
And so Mother Destiny intervenes and saves us all.
Me and My Boy, Snip
This was taken a few years ago, shortly before I drove back home. I had been up visiting the Baker’s–Snip’s owners–who live out in the country, about a half-hour or so away from San Antonio for a week and now it was time to go home. I love to take pictures of me and my boy, so that I can have them as a “record of sorts”. Or something to that effect. I just love taking pictures with him. And there are times–like here–where he happily cooperates and so they turn out pretty good. When he cooperates, that means he’s posing. Which he does love to do….pose. This horse can truly pose. 😀
