Haiku time again

Pitter patter rain comes down

Thor swings his mighty hammer

Thunder quakes the sky

Misty, muggy air

The early morning sun sweats

Dewdrops glistening

Divebombing warbirds

Creating nasty messes

Need magical stuff.

Crouching on the rock

Brown spots dapple slimy skin

Frog watches then leaps

STOP A MOMENT FOR

HIBISCUS AND PINK LILIES

DON’T SMELL THE ROSES

Hop, scurry, cricket

Tries to hide in the bathroom

I caught it anyway

Time to wend your way

Through turning pathways of a

Sparkly Labyrinth

Too humid outside

To take a lovely, long walk

This makes me grumpy

“Why is the rum gone?”

Demands Captain Jack Sparrow.

‘Cause you drank it, fool!

Lonely cracked willow

Supports birds in fragile boughs

Plum water yet beckons

Shadows and Tall Trees

I “exercised” my freedom to take a walk on a State Trail with my family today…and also risked being eaten alive by mosquitoes.
Glacial Drumlin State Trail, about 1.5 miles from the trailhead.

I always enjoy traversing the Glacial Drumlin State Trail and taking pictures with my phone. It’s the scenic way to get exercise! Redwing black birds were serenading us in their harshly metallic fashion and the green frogs even decided to add a little banjo-string action to the mix. All told, the walk this morning with my boys was worth getting sweaty for and risking bug bites. Not that the mosquitoes bit us very much; we knew the blood-thirsty swarms would be voracious and came prepared with extra-potent bug dope!

Beware, for here there be faeries…I mean, MOSQUITOES!
Approaching the height of summer… natural beauty.
Algae-tastic. I wouldn’t recommend taking a dip, but it sure is nice to look at.
The sentinel trees have eyes and they are watching you!
Eight thirty in the morning and I am sodden with perspiration.
It was a beautiful walk. Thank you, God, for Deep Forest OFF!

I hope that you enjoyed my photos. Feel free to share about your own favorite natural and scenic places. I’d love to hear your comments!

Happy Independence Day, everyone!
