Trekking the Transition
Although this gradual shift of season from winter to spring seems to take longer than we like, sometimes one treks across a pathway and a captivating pov
A perfect day and a freshly flowing stream is a pristine reminder of Wisconsin's natural beauty.
A Memorable Winter Day
Some days of winter resound in splendor,
even though the quiet is as silent as can be.
Alone in Winter
Not a soul around except me,
and winter's ways eclipse the trees,
and frozen waters make waste lands be,
but no, the lands are not lost,
just beauty bound in a deep frost,
that casts a view into stark,
and no there be no songs of a lark,
yet strangely so the view has wonder,
as I stand there and admire and ponder,.
no matter where grandeur is unique,
even alone in winter's mystique.
Hiking the Frozen Tundra
When the ways of winter abide the lands, hiking a midst the frozen marsh, one can find unique point's of view that are not reachable in the warm seasons.
Remembering The Old Country
In the old far away country,
before the mass immigration days,
life was busy to collect its bounty,
which didn't leave much time for play,
but then in a spare moment or two,
maybe scenes of rural aptitudes,
were created with a carving tool,
depictions of imagined visual platitudes,
by some collaboration of artist's mind and hand,
a preservation of a way of a life of rural means,
migrated too, to this Wisconsin land,
and heritages grew along fertile hills and streams.
St. Nick's R and R?
There I was admiring the view and lo and behold this fellow flashed by.. Lucky I had my camera in hand, otherwise I would have missed this once in a lifetime photo opp! He passed so fast I didn't get an introduction, but I wondered if it was St. Nick... on his vacation after such a busy weekend? It all happened so suddenly I never realized his unique cross legged skiing style until I processed the photo..It must have been him! Magical Nick, just magical ;)
Peace On Earth Good Will To Men
Wishing all on CW a very Merry Christmas!
Festival of Lights
The web site says there are over 4 million lights decorating Riverside Park. This is taken from the south end of the park.
It's only twelve notes,
and eighty eight black and white keys,
but to play those octaves it isn't any ease,
that keyboard connection where fingers float,
and marvelous music rises to an ear,
it can become an instrument to revere.
