The Red Ribbon

photo

Cast in light

Her photographs

Captured in the pure white light

Of winter

Kissing her naked skin

And showing off the red ribbon

At her throat

To perfection

Bray Head

IMG_5847 IMG_5843 IMG_4030 IMG_2074

Bray Head, Ireland

A hike to the top of the world

Or so it seemed

Blue green expanse of sea spread out before me

I sat on the rocky hillside and enjoyed the silence

The vastness

How small I felt

But how thrilled to be so close

Sitting at the edge

Looking down at the rocks and swirling water below

I knew if I moved the wrong way

I could fall

But I moved ever closer to the edge

Wanting, somehow

To be part of it all

Not just a spectator

To become the element

Myself

The First Snowfall

photo

The first snowfall

So excited was she

That she danced around

Like a gypsy

Catching errant flakes

On her tongue

Her innocence

Childlike

He was entranced

By the tableau

His snow queen

The Majesty of the Sea

IMG_1580

There is poetry

In the majesty of the sea

From the snow capped waves

Atop the glorious blue depths

To the tides rushing in

And just as quickly receding

Churning up treasures

From the deep

But perhaps the most majestic thing

About the sea

Is the way that it

Rejuvenates

The soul
