Winter lullaby
Migrating loons have returned
Cold frost at their wing

I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  1. Love the deep pinks and undulations. Your landscape and horizon shots are amazing. Subtle, deep, sublime. Nice haiku too!

  2. The pastel waves look so calming and beautiful. Your haiku submission was interesting and very pretty with loons returning as a signal of Winter’s lullabye.
    So lovely how you mentioned someone else who won. Such kindness is appreciated. 🙂

  4. This post was all about amazing LINEs to me! The lines of your poem – how it aligned with the picture – and then the multiple levels of lines in this sweet photo – really enjoyed your art here (and I will tone down the praise next time! Ha!)
