Poets and Photographers Wednesday

Schooner Adventurer and More Schooners
at Schooner Festival on Cape Ann MA ~ H is for Hull for ABC Wednesday

The holiday weekend weather was delightful and I had time to be outside enjoying the beauty and being creative with my camera. Today has turned to rain and cool weather and a real Autumn feel to it. Managed to capture some good shots of the Bounty which was used in the movie, Mutiny on the Bounty which hopefully I will show at some point this week. In the meantime, here are two photos of the Schooner Festival that was viewed from my deck. Hope you are enjoying the results. Below the second photo are my haiku and the word prompt was 'classical haiku.' Enjoy.

'Red Sails' at Schooner Festival on Cape Ann, MA


rain drops on window
nature's way not everyday
sigh, rain go away.

walking in the rain
head wet, blessed by nature
shelter at hut soon.

windows being clean
rain drizzles on panes silently
feeding grass, plants and flowers.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY: 'Today I will pay attention to rhythm. I will consider whether it is my own by my choices. If it is not, I will seek guidance to find my own rhythm and listen to it.'
