Vast woods of green

Lush meadows immersed beside vast woods of green,
spread flowers forth through fragrant fields pristine,
enchanted trees in nature's realm,
where fairies dance on limbs of elm,
and forest land to breath the air so clean
A tulip for you...

The Mermaid

Vast oceans of written words are scribed with kindled passions running through the veins of inquisitive souls -- vivid passages glisten with the sweet love revolving in one's sphere of influence whence the thoughts and senses acquire a greater dimension of fluency. When I strive to extol vast hemispheres of new worlds yet to be experienced, I feel the exhilarating essence of induced feelings of gleeful anxiety. And I, the lowly observer, listening to passages of music made bare before my ears, often find instances of interlude yet to be savored, sometimes conjuring before my mind's eye an adventure to taste and to grip in ones own two hands, an affair to remember and a new encounter to thrill the heart in barely veiled anticipation. Yes, these are the events that drive fresh adrenaline to stir my interests, and as the senses stir, progressively the concert becomes my intimate and the venture is complete.

Recognizable bits of beauty

Happy to ride my bike
and listen to the sounds of nature:
spring peeper frogs far off in the distance,
yet distinctly recognized,
woodpeckers making commotion,
sweet song birds singing and
various sundry other recognizable bits of beauty,
sights and sound,
with the fresh Spring wind blowing
refreshingly on my face as I ride.

Water Skimmers

Observe the patterns and reflections in the water.

Floating along the calm surface of the creek, every Spring these water skimmers are mating.

It was about 45 minutes of lots of photos.
After a little while I found the perfect spot for the blue reflection, then I kept my eye out for them to float through that spot, and kept snapping.

Spring Colors Spring Forth, yet

Spring Colors Spring Forth, yet
The anointed ruler stumbles on,
trampling subjects 'till he's gone;
the governed rise against the fool,
that dimming luminary unfit to rule.

Written in my perceived fashion after Shakespeare's style, as per my daughter's invitation to aid her in her Shakespeare homework assignment :)
