Full Moon

The Moon reflecting on an icicle.  February 2015.  The row of lights on the bottom is the moon reflection in windows in a greenhouse across the road. ©Sometimes, 2015.

shining silver orb
brightens the evening sky
night becomes as day.

We see by the light rays
things not apparent by day
shadows take flight
and shimmer with imagination.

Silver the night color of green
street lights merge with the surges
of glow from the sky
to take on star-like images
and fool the searching eye.

But take warning–
the moon can play tricks
glimmering magical branches and sticks
can become mundane by morning.

Shiny silver orb
brightens the evening sky
–night becomes as day.

Welcome to My Home

(Photo101, first assignment, 2015 March 3]

WELCOME TO MY PLACE.

{The beautiful Bleeding Heart is from last year.   It is safe and sound under the clump of snow seen to the right  in the photo below.]

This scene is the one that I enjoy the most when I return from traveling.  The barn and the greenhouses are across the road, the maple trees along the road an in the next door neighbor’s yard.   These are good sized shrubs, nestled along the path through the snow covered walk.  I am standing at my front door, shooting outward, toward the southwest.    The beautiful wind-chime is a bell made of metal, the clapper is shaped like a Ginko leaf.
