Nature’s Gifts

It’s been a stressful few days.
Thought I would share a few photos I find soothing.

I find nature always helps me put things in perspective.
The sun sets and the sun rises. We must too.
I hope you enjoy these pictures of nature’s gifts.

 

 

Serenity

I see the ocean in my mind’s eye
Its broad expanse reaches out
to the horizon
in every direction
I see a ship, bobbing in solitude
surrounded by blue,
everywhere blue
I see the sun shining brightly
upon this white speck,
its yellow glow brilliant and warm
I sense the lavender hues
of peace and serenity
