Morning Silver

I took this photo a couple of days ago, and it has inspired the following:

Water reflects
Glittering silver rays
Not yet gold from daylight.
It’s early morning,
No sound save the lapping
Of gentle waves kissing
The shore and their footprints,
One man and his dog
Walk the beach in peaceful solitude.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    A good reflection on water reflection mirrors thoughts!

    Reminds me of “A Man, a Dog, and the Sky” (From my “Just Thinking” book).

    Laying on the grass
    On a summer afternoon,
    And watching clouds caress the blue sky.
    Listening to birds, as they sing their songs,
    But I’m thinking of… just you and I.
    ***
    Leaves gently dancing
    To the tune of the wind,
    With their branches swaying in time.
    Insects are buzzing their own harmonies,
    While I’m thinking of… just you and I.
    ***
    And even at night,
    When stars fill the sky,
    It’s so easy to lose track of time.
    There’s much to see but… so easy to dream
    About… just you and I.
    ***
    And on rainy days;
    We both look outside,
    And wish that the weather was fine.
    But soon it will stop and then… we’ll both go
    To play in the garden… you and I.
    ***
    You wanted to be friends.
    I was rather surprised.
    A nose touch… yours to mine
    Was all it took to melt my heart.
    A nose touch… and a moment of time.
    ***
    Perhaps our souls indeed did touch.
    The inner me perhaps was found.
    Perhaps it was just your big brown eyes
    Saying so much… yet with no sound.
    But that’s history… to you and I.
    ***
    So where do we go
    From here my dear friend?
    Where do we go and why?
    To journey together; to laugh and to cry,
    And to enjoy every moment of our time.
    ***
    A man and his best friend.
    What more could there possibly be?
    I ask myself with a sigh.
    Such unconditional love… just for me.
    I shall never question why.
    ***
    Here we both are anyway,
    And on the same road.
    Who knows of the reason or rhyme?
    But we can love and play; celebrate each day
    And enjoy what remains of our time.
    ***
    Who would ever have thought?
    Both of us… just laying here,
    On the grass. Just you and I.
    Just you and I… together… and alone.
    A man… a dog… and the sky!

  3. Nice pic, not even a single ray of other colors, only pure silverish line.
