Morning Meditation: Ahoy, Matey!

I saw a crane that appeared to be crossing the lake on a small boat.

Morning Meditation: Sea Gulls

A small flock of sea gulls resting on a pier last Tuesday.


No Fishing

The weather is getting warmer, so it’s more conducive to soaking in a little January sun over these past few days. I took an afternoon walk earlier this week to take advantage of it. There is a lake in a neighboring town, and it was my destination.

All the birds in the county seemed to be out enjoying the sun and warmth, too. I spotted ducks, herons, cranes, and sea gulls.

Rounding the pier on my stroll, I took a picture of a sign prohibiting fishing in the lake. It wasn’t until I returned home and download my seventy or so pictures, that I saw this white sea gull by the sign:

I wonder if it heeded the warning.

“Stare” (Spanishwoods blog repost)

Today I’m reblogging this pretty poem and accompanying photograph by Spanishwoods.  Do you see the red hawk?

there you were–

a beautiful red hawk scanning the horizon,

registering our presence with a cold, hard stare
