breeze brushing the cheeks
skipping over small puddles
fun in the open

sounds of chirping birds
evening sun bidding to rest
nature bows to wants

nocturnal creatures
commence hunting clubbing and
dining in the night

  12. I hadn't even thought of nature coming out, and that is the time--as light turns to dark! How wonderful, too, that nature is timed so that we can notice, enter it and enjoy it before we bow at the performance and head off to sleep--leaving the natural world to those who have no where else to shine.

  15. This brought me back o childhood, sitting in the bottom of nature's cup to have fun when the awe-full-ness of night opens.

    dining in the night

  18. The simplicity of this piece illustrates perfectly where beauty can be found (I mean simplicity in a good way of course!)

  19. This is a great series -- really liking the second one, nature bowing -- and bowing due to the wants of the sun and to creatures, not man -- just lovely! :)

  20. I've known several of those nocturnal creatures. I tend to avoid the places they go.
