Simple Pleasures (Art & Poetry) by 


The simplest of pleasures are;
Low clouds across the sky,
Soft rustling of sea oats
Lazy as a dragonfly.

Settling upon a tall blade,
Transparent wings rest there.
Relaxing in the sunlight
As if he hasn’t a care.

The island is a haven
For nature at it’s best.
The sand & the sea a home
For all to come & rest.

St. George Island, Fl, USA.

    Absolutely marvellous work, Rhonda. What a lovely, tranquil feeling this image leaves. One can hear the soft susurrus of the waves and a plaintive call of a seagull in one’s mind, all enhanced by that beautiful video.

  • Thanks Mike… this was on a day where there was no breeze & the waves were the only sound you could hear…. Glad you have enjoyed this with me.
