Close of hot June day—
soft sea breeze, high crescent moon,
cool waves kiss the shore.
We’ve enjoyed a bit of a heat wave this past week, an unusually early occurrence here in the easternmost province of Canada.
I call it a bonus because our summers are notoriously short, and after a long winter and spring, warm sun-filled days are more than welcome. I’m also grateful for the coastal breezes that keep things temperate.
This is my contribution to A Photo a Week Challenge: Dusk – nancy merrill photography
Peaceful winter morn
Dressed in snow – the only sound:
Soft moan of the sea.
I wish this was the view from our yard today, but no. This snap was taken last winter when we had snow. Positively springlike all weekend!

Waking up too soon
dreams dissolve, sleep elusive,
I rub my tired eyes
But then my heart smiles
a new day, a new chance – Life’s
Do you ever wake up too early?
Or do you like to start every morning at daybreak?
Photo Challenge: Early
Under a blue sky
a soft breeze while the sun sets;
quintessence of peace
