View Of The Pond
Cloudless the serene, stained so blue
From which the autumn sun gives a deceptive view.
For the air is crisp across the ears and nose;
Yet invigorating, awakening the senses, head to toes.
In the pond, the luminous rays bathe,
Painting with crystals, all in good faith.
Each jewel crested ripple is hurried along
By the unceasing wind that isn't strong.
Translucent the water, apparent the rocks below,
If not for it's wrinkles, all the ponds secrets would show
A lone white feather, it's vane a sail,
Swiftly glides over the water in an unswerving trail.
The geese to whom the feather belongs
Dip and bob as they silently float along.
Ballerinas of the pond, tipping their tutus to the sky
While bowed down for the nourishment they spy.
Full of wonder, I soaked in the scene;
No matter, this route is part of my routine.
To the observer, each day brings a different view and feel.
Finding heavenliness, can make life seem surreal.
Find beauty in the everyday,

I am reposting this poem that I wrote in the fall to share with Earthweal Open Link Weekend #58
Catch a couple of my haikus with the pictures below. Thank you.
A feathered tutu
Stark white, diamond encircled
Pointing to the sky
Graceful is the calm
Drifting, bobbing, up and down
This the dance of geese
The feather it seems
Floating on air, hovering
Yet it’s water clear
