Painted Skies by Polly Peacock

As soon as I saw the sun rising, I raced off to get to the golf course in my Parent’s retirement village, not quite expecting what I saw. The sky was amazing. Full of incredibly vivid color, I was totally awestruck! This is one of the first pictures that I took. This is the kind of picture that I can meditate with perfect peace and harmony. If only it could have stayed this way, however, Mother Nature is ever changing. I wouldn’t have it any other way either. Thank God for the ability to do a one second CLICK!

This photograph was shot with a Canon 40D 75mm wide angle lens in West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA.


Lyrics to The Mummers’ Dance

When in the springtime of the year
When the trees are crowned with leaves
When the ash and oak, and the birch and yew
Are dressed in ribbons fair

When owls call the breathless moon
In the blue veil of the night
The shadows of the trees appear
Amidst the lantern light

We’ve been rambling all the night
And some time of this day
Now returning back again
we bring a garland gay

Who will go down to those shady groves
And summon the shadows there
And tie a ribbon on those sheltering arms
In the springtime of the year

The songs of birds seem to fill the wood
That when the fiddler plays
All their voices can be heard
Long past their woodland days

And so they linked their hands and danced
Round in circles and in rows
And so the journey of the night descends
When all the shades are gone

A garland gay we bring you here
And at your door we stand
It is a sprout well budded out
The work of Our Lord’s hand

My life is like a well read book that’s never ending, at least for this moment in time. As I continually add new chapters to my book, I find that my photography plays a big part in it. This is most especially true as my great love and fascination with Mother Naure never wanes. It’s my hope that you, too, will share my joy as the pages in my book of life continue to flip forward! My Very Best, Polly Peacock
