Poets and Photographers Tuesday

Heron Pond ~ part of ArtMuse Dog and my Sunday adventure to the Conservation Site on Cape Ann MA.

Old and New Life of Nature at same Conservation Site as above.

Tuesday Post ~ on Monday ~ for 'Over the Pond' Blogs
ArtMuse Dog and I had a marvelous time walking and then sauntering to take in nature's gifts all around us. Of course, ArtMuse was more concerned with the destination than the journey. She was 'on the hunt' for all those different smells she had not taken in before. Even though this day event was so filling my creative spirit, I couldn't help imagine what the colors would be like when the leaves began to turn colors. Have to check back again. In the meantime we have haiku for you as well. The prompt for Tackle It Tuesday haiku was 'time.'

time, the gift of life
dance each moment with delight
treasure it today.

child time slow to pass
soon, time fleets through the fingers
gone, never to return.

time, tick, tocking by
each moment a memory
grateful for each day.
(carol l mckenna)

We are sharing photography and poetry with:

  4. love the reflections in the first shot

  5. Beautiful reflection photos!

  6. Awesome take on time Carol. Love the way you have used it in these three haiku. My favorite is the first. Wonderfully composed triplet. Thank you for being part of Tackle it Tuesday.

  7. I bet Art Muse loved the walk in the conservation area!

  8. Beautiful photos!I love the name of the pond....Heron Pond ...has such a lovely sound to it :0)

  9. I'm enjoying the moment in your watery photos.

  10. Lovely shots, lovely words and I just want to hug your dog!!

  11. Wonderful reflections in that first shot.

  12. Beautiful pictures! Beautiful words!

  13. I too wrote a Time haiku today .... my brain is flooding with haiku thoughts these days ;-)

  14. Thank you for stopping by on my side of the world!

    I love your little haiku riddles :)

  15. I like the tree in the lake. I had a biology teacher at school who as part of an ecology unit showed us pictures he had taken of a tree that had fallen into a pond over 15 years ago. It was interesting to see it decompose before your eyes.

  16. The words are lovely as is the photo showing the older silver-illuminated vegetation through the new.

  17. A perfect place to make time slow down...sitting on this bank

  18. nice pix - where were they taken? and a delightful set....I wish I could 'dance ....with delight' everyday, but life just isn't that grand all the time.....I remember my mom telling me time goes faster the older you get, and she was right again!

  19. I love the thought of time being a gift of life. Wonderful pictures.

  20. Your haiku is beautiful and so true. Time goes so quickly now. I remember as a young girl the summer lasted forever. Now, you blink it is gone which is why it is so important to remember to cherish the moment. Your pictures are beautiful.
