Opposites #aviation #photography #haiku

 

old and new

wind plays with balloon

 traveler cant wait for heat 

jet propelled

What’s your preferred mode of transportation?

This week’s photochallenge at wordpress is “opposites” 

 

Admiration #photochallenge

 

A place where kids can play

smiling faces fly

royal castles from sand

a child in a wheelchair

can reach for the sky

Virginia Beach has the first beach playground that is accessible to all -It’s called Grommet Park. I admire a community that does something for others just because.

The dp photo challenge this week is Admiration

 

 

Envelop Me #poetry #photography

inside envelope

Today, I wrote a letter

tis true

sealed words so dear

but I cannot tell you here

someone might with feelings play

and cruelly give away

for those are cherished

meant for you

sealed and stuck with glue

Today I wrote a letter

tis true

Contrast of Dawn and Sunset #photography #poetry

behold the dawn

where the earth 

unveils color as she

dances for the warming rays

embrace the night

shadowy covering

last tendrils of color

extinguished is day

The wordpress weekly photo challenge was Saturated. When I thin of saturated I think of the way that color absorbs light.  Dawn and Sunset seemed the two times of day when color saturates our earth.
