captive sunlight beams from within delicate spheres as ephemeral as purest serenity suspended in careless precision upon a blade's edge It's been a while since I posted anything more than a wordless photograph on my blog, so I thought it was about time I shared something a little longer.

view through a dream's ambiguous clarity visions conjured from yesteryear's depths unchanging necessities amidst the hubbub
wild energies flow channelled through fertile form the lord of the goats leaps in triumph leading the herd along paths of uncertainty
gain insight in ascent awakening emotions stultified by society's strictures * gain closure in descent revisiting issues locked within subconscious crypts * gain wisdom with each step overcoming life's adversities so true joy can be found
cross the white bridge transitioning from autumnal dreams into the bleak reality of shadow-cast days awakening to discover the wisdom of the winter crone
joyous laughter echoes over the lake's expanse as small feet kick tumbled leaves into riotous disarray * lakeside memories of chill air nipping at unmuffled skin whilst safely enclosed in loving arms with ducks to feed
horseshoes clatter metal pealing against cobblestones in a chiming of bells as dreamlike figures ghost by a cavalcade of spirits messengers from the past bearing warning from a time of division and strife for those who care to listen This week's photo was taken at an English Civil War reenactment in my home town of...

I was already thinking about using them for a... Continue Reading →
seasons shift decorating the land in daubs of gold finger paints wildly applied joy articulated with a child's exuberance whilst leaves crunch underfoot During September, the signs of autumn have become increasingly rife in the meadow and in the wooded area beside the stream. The first leaves have begun to turn, shades of golden brown... Continue Reading →
aglow with simple elegance she glides serenely onwards * untouched by worldly concerns * divorced from fear and anger * enriched by nature's beneficence she scatters diamonds of purest sunlight in her wake
think of the stories that could be told if the voices of the long gone could be heard within those aged walls but their tales have been forgotten as our own too shall someday be This post is for Cee's Black and White Photo Challenge. This week's theme is buildings.
long fur tangles beneath fingertips as a warm weight sprawls ∗ hedonistically over your legs whilst a deep purr reverberates and ∗ guileless eyes stare deep into your soul binding you tight Meet Geoffrey. Technically, he's my sister's cat, but as my sister and I now live together, I suppose he's my cat now, too.... Continue Reading →
tread softly along paths gentled by hazy memory, strolling amidst recollections of yesteryear's cares where lost loves and old pains fade into ephemeral touches, phantom fingers brushing against present preoccupations This post is for Cee's Which Way challenge.

On ephemeral wings she flits, never settling for long: never long enough to catch her, never long enough to bind her back into the cocooned existence she's fled.
