Nature inspired scenes

Poetry: Stout Volunteer

Standing stout and very proud, In this somewhat fertile ground… Here you see its vibrant blooms, Warding off some grey day glooms… Not quite planned, no others near, Grows this treasured volunteer… At this sight my day improves, And many hearts I pray it…

Poetry:Violet Star

On center stage, this violet star, Does call to bees, near and far… “Come close to me, sit a spell, Take home some sweet, from my well”… Responding quick, to this call, Come many bees, large and small… They don’t stay long, busy bees,…

Shapes and Petals

[Begin Scene] 5 yellow petals make a pointed yellow star… Small vines reach forth gripping onto the hexagon grid of green fencing.. Deep green leaves blend into a solid backdrop… Tiny spines glowing white in the bright sun… This cucumber garden, a vibrant escape!…

Famlies

As brutal as nature can be, it is nice to see moments like this we can learn from. I snapped this mother mallard and her ducklings this morning on a nearby pond. Good families do indeed tackle rough waters together. I hope all of…

Filled with Fire

[Begin Scene] Bright yellow and orange petals open with the dawn… Basking in the warmth of early golden rays… Filled with life, filled with fire… A welcome sight at this early hour. [End scene]         © 2018 – James Sponseller –…

Scene: A Quiet Place

I don’t think it would shock anyone that this is one of my favorite scenes from a few months ago. [Begin scene] Between the rocks along a tiny trail, Is found this place of little water falls… When here no thoughts to give of win or…

Poem: Agile

Agile words, shared from this place, to make one stop and think… And ease their day, some joy embrace, to bring them from the brink… Of giving in, to stress and strife, a rather darkened state… I hope words help, and pictures too, for…

Scene: Fresh Snow

[Begin scene] The world bright yet nearly colorless, earth tones hidden beneath a blanket of fresh white snow… Bits of blue escape through the clouds, hinting at the somber sky beyond… Shadows dance and play on the ground turned canvas, here to entertain… The show,…

Haiku: Static

Static, this moment, Hanging deftly on the edge, Waiting to collapse.   A snowy overhang picture taken this morning from last night’s snow and ice storm.       © 2018 – James Sponseller – mindescapes.net  

Scene: Funnel of Dusk

[Begin scene] A day calm and serene, closing once again… Light gathering into the funnel of dusk, melding into the brightest yellows… Reds and purples streaming in, reflected about by a mix of clouds… A small pond mirroring back the beautiful sight, highlighting a…

Scene: Varnishable View

[Begin scene] A quiet day approaches its end… The setting sun sets the sky ablaze… Red, orange, yellow, like liquid fire spanning across the horizon… A view you would love to varnish and keep forever, the beauty in your mind. [End scene]   ©…

Scene: Frosting

[Begin scene] A chilled morning, an ideal place for frost… The frosted glass table sits quietly, freezing in the crisp air… Upon it a leaf, taking on the color of copper patina, its edges highlighted by a light frosting… The scene frozen, awaiting the sun…
