Photographers and Poets ~ Wed and Thurs



G ~ for Gull ~ ABC Wednesday

Welcome to our post for Wednesday and Thursday. The above photo is one of Cape Ann's finest ~ the classic seagull. The seagull's noise is a sound heard regularly on Cape Ann. Being an island connected by two bridges, you know you are surrounded by nature and many opportunities to relax and create. Mr Gull was waiting to board 'The Lannon' ~ an Essex built schooner that was having a Celtic music cruise and Mr Gull was going to have a fine time with good weather, great sail and excellent music.

The photo below was taken while aboard The Lannon. One of the musician's had lost their music sheets overboard. This kayaker came to the rescue and saved the sheet music.




O is for Oar or Ocean  for Alphabe

Hope these photos show the wonderful natural energy that Cape Ann holds and fills the spirit with peace, love and joy. Take a wonderful deep breath and breathe the salt air in today.

Below are my haiku for Haiku Sensational

haiku

fireboat sprays water
welcoming schooners coming
harbor festival.
-o-

wings of fine water
greeting schooners arrival
celebrating soon.
-o-

tradition, a gem
signifies sacred moment
mesmerizing soul.

  2. Nice shots! Seagulls and I don't get along, though - too many have tried to steal my fries at the beach. :p

  56. Some people think that sacred moments must be new and different. They can be, but as you point out, they can also be found in tradition.
