Painted sunset sky


This was taken by me while

standing in my son James’

and wife Trista’s backyard.

Cool, damp grass upon

bare feet. Each sound clear 

of mosquito buzzing, dog 

barking as ball thrown to her

and last songs for the evening

sung by birds and parents (who

still read books and) sing lullabies.

Wishing one of your dreams or

hopes come true this summer.

Crescent moon between the lines


There’s something awesome about

moonbeams and when I saw 

this crescent moon

suspended between the lines,

I exclaimed, “It is only

a paper moon. . .”


Happy April Fool’s Day!

Did you know between Columbus

and Cleveland there are mountains?


Can you see the mountains?  😉

Panorama of field: Ashley, Ohio



As far as the eyes could see,

the vista or panorama,

taking in all the

fields of soybeans.

Although nowhere the sea,

the horizon’s dip seemed

to give a glimpse of ocean blue.

Ashley, Ohio is a small town

part of Buckeye Valley.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

described a part of natural

transformation during the

month of August as this ~

“The foliage has been losing

it’s freshness through the month

of August, and here and there a

yellow leaf shows itself like

the first gray hair.”
