IT’S RANDOM ACTS OF POETRY DAY 2015!

Autumn 2015 might go down in history as a revival of Blue Jay bliss year! Playoff hope is in the air & optimism reigns, even as the beleaguered Toronto Maple Leafs start a new season in the NHL with an opening match against their traditional Montreal Canadiens rivals! 🙂

Me, I’m happy for the Jays but also ecstatic that this middle of the work week day  is one of those milder than usual October days when the colour of autumn is peaking!

Also, it happens to be a special day to celebrate poetry!

The moon will be aligned at night with a couple of planets and this community is ready to celebrate Oktoberfest!

How sweet that so many good things come together!

Wrote a small haiku to celebrate the day and one of my favourite parts of the universe — birch trees!

Have a wonderful rest of the week! 🙂

HALF & HALF WITHOUT THE CREAM!

In response to The Daily Post's weekly photo challenge: "Half and Half."
This week's challenge brought to mind some photos that I had taken  at Lake Huron in a much colder season.
Last year, on a very cold spring day, the ice collected along the horizon. A seasonal divider reminded us of the freezing temperatures and blizzards of previous months.
This image and memory of that cold day, made a hot July afternoon seem more bearable! :)
ICY HORIZON!
