Rookie (August 4 / Florida)

***Seven Forty Sevened Ponds


Incidental footprints of your journey
Mirrored olives, blues and strings of white
So many caught in busied travel delight
Olive-d peace in reflection-ed stills
Perfect illusions highlighted - capture
Your wanderings digitized ripples
Pastoral beauty applied to canvas
Floating above, sipping spirits refreshment
Cotton candied lateral landscapes flow
Contrails significant in their passing
Destinations unique for silver
Winged tube’s residential occupants
Mornings early shore prints reveal hoof prints
Over near the cattails a young deer drinks
In your journey… quenching a long nights thirst

    An exceptional work! Beautifully crafted. Those 'incidental footprints' so often remain as vivid memories from 30,000 feet. Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply
