sunday morning moments

sunday morning reflections 2014

wavering reflection/ dawns light on the water/ prayers of thanksgiving

sound of trumpets/ wild geese overhead /processional hymn

echoing across the cove/ tiny wrens warbling song/ call to worship

frothy white pear blossoms/ peek out from the woods/ little girls in church

small brown chipmunk/ perched on the gray stone wall/ morning meditations

small fishing boats/ bobbing in the morning cove/ gestures of faith

across the warming meadow/ cacophony of birdsong/ sunday morning choir practice

morning wakes/ shrouded in gray mist/ prayers of intercession

quiet murmuring/ pale gray doves in the cedars/ lenten prayers

from the cedar tops/ blue jays call/ shouts of acclamation

cold wind ruffles the morning cove/ sound of waves against the rocky shore/ prayers of the penitent

from the cold winter garden/ bright golden trumpets of daffodils/ intrusion of grace

*** This is the scene that greeted me this morning as I was filling the birdfeeders – such a glorious sky and reflections – hope you have a beautiful day

red haired dawn

Late winter morning 2-2014
leaping over the ridge
dawn’s red haired wildness
skips across the cove
with tawny paws

*** I was thrilled this morning to see a red fox loping across the meadow. He was a gorgeous color with his foxy face and bushy tail. We have seen tracks and evidence of his hunt, but this was our first sighting. A joy to see!

winter clouds perception

Ice covered Cove in Feb!
clouds of ice
form
skimming the cove
on the rocky shore
sounds of complaint
snow squeaking
with each footfall
my boots
expression
impressions of diamonds
blue shadowed

clouds of sparrows
rise
tiny brown bodies
white streaked brows
over bright black eyes
trident tracks
where the road forks
into the winter woods

clouds of breath
enter
the warm house before me
sound of strings
Beethoven Cello Sonata
No1 in F Op5 No1
and the news
Syria, Sochi,
a newborn found
in a gym bag

my mug of tea
swirling
clouds of cream
