on a Mission trip

heralding a new season

a scene inside a tv screen

as we came through the mountains from a gray day the coastal sky opened up to blue

blurred in passing misty landscapes at day's end

the journey back had much more sunshine

looking down on Osoyoos

a little south on the same lake... the USA border is far right across the water

the trees are scarce up here

This is a B&B and a functioning observatory

listen for the silence

buddha and the purple petal flowers
listen for the silence

as elements arranged to explain the fall

somewhat worse for wear since the last time found

ink well of inspiration
stirred a design impossible to see
except with the mind

found shape

beyond the aggression of nothing to see
above in a place imagined
the elements resist the urge
to be exhibited right

formed by a hand
many years etching
an imitation landscape
into the pressurized shapes

repetition of formation
marked by time scratching
away the empty parts

lines lead to reflection
of self impossible
to ignore

between the ones

perhaps the last of the season

bob finds a way to cast an effect

recurring theme squeezed between branches

who knew betty boop was so inclined

penned simply
it's more the arrangement
than the elements
implying written words

the house with the crooked chimney
puffs smoke into eyes of a leaf
no longer asleep

leaving the tree

a car window landscape that turned out not too bad

another sunset example of sky colour

one bird chose a moment
when the end result
would inspire a composition

each tree in fall
depending on location
leaves in a different way

split perception divided
along the mind's line
between thought and tangible

edit perception

blank canvas becomes artistic expression
when the conditions are right
for the painter to apply the brush

half moon portal
sky on the rise inside
the framed mind

empty composition
based on sudden inspiration
tries a selection
without hesitation

sudden breeze of sunlight
lifts a flag to perception
