Introducing leggings. Step into a world of stunning designs.

round the ragged rocks
the running waters ran
and round and round
and round they went
rippling the river
until they were spent

then slipped on by
floated downstream
with never a care
as if in a dream

round the ragged rocks
the rain waters ran
and round and round
and round they flew
swept along
as if they knew

what lay ahead
and where they’re meant
to finally be
where the river meets the sea

as is from the camera

An avid photographer, both still and moving, since I was 10 years old, I later discovered and developed a particular love of macro, which is one of my main genres. More recently, however, my repertoire has broadened to include stained glass windows and particularly the stunning beauty of outback New South Wales and South Australia.
I hope you enjoy the beauty of the Creation, captured and presented here for you.

    Such gentle movement of the water, I like the little poem too.,

  • Thank you for your kind words. The movement of the river that evening was indeed gentle and very relaxing, quiet and therapeutic. So the poem simply flowed, as did the waters..xxxx

    Do NOT attempt to read the first stanza with a mouth of marbles trying to roll your Rs lol
    A bit like “Round the rugged rocks the ragged rascal ran” lol who wrote that? Probably the same bloke who wrote “she sells sea shells” or “the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog!” lol
    What a Gorgeously tranquil scene! & the poetry is exceptional!
    ☼ BRAVO!! ☼
