Time flies like an arrow, butterflies like a flower

I made this doodle several days ago but find the center makes me think of a butterfly.

 

I was checking out some of the likes other bloggers have left me and I consequently came across Tom Peace’s nature photography blog which provided some inspiration for this next scene.

[Begin scene]

Deep pink petals surround a soft orange center which tops a slender green stem…

Perched on this beautiful flower rests an even more beautiful creature…

Thin velvety wings like stained glass windows shine bright in yellows and golds…

Its body a match in brightness, host to six tiny legs that cling to the flower against a slight breeze…

The butterfly sips from the delicate flower, its wings alight in the daytime sun…

Majestic!

Morning Dew

 

[Begin scene]

Droplets of water cling to blades of grass, daring to let go…

The yard shimmers like a thousand sunrises as the droplets pick up the early morning rays…

The cool damp ground muffles the sounds as a squirrel scurries through the grass, searching for yet another acorn to set away for the coming barren season…

The rising sun seals the fate of the scattered droplets as its warmth drives them back to the air from whence they came…

Tomorrow they will return, peaceful and beautiful as ever.

Mountain Trout

[Begin scene]

Silky white clouds pass between a pair of mountain peaks…

Green shrubbery covers the landscape softened by the blue of the sky…

A nearby stream flows swiftly by, cool water tumbling over an assortment of rocks, gurgling on its way…

Just under the surface there swims a handful of trout, keeping place despite the current rushing by…

In a word, serene.

New theme

I decided to try a new theme for the blog. Let me know if you find this theme easy to navigate or where it could be improved.

Thank You!

 

As summer ends

With Labor day celebrated here in the U.S. it kind of represents the ending of summer and for northern places a changing of seasons. To mark this passing I have put together both a doodle and accompanying scene. I hope you find them enjoyable!

[Begin scene]

The lush and vibrant greens of summer find themselves amongst new company…

Deep oranges and browns start to dot the landscape as the next season emerges…

Still the bright purples of seasons before are not yet forgotten…

And summer’s fine memories will settle in too…

Somewhere inside where they’ll warm you clear through.

Flash in the Night

[Begin scene]

A distant horizon made silhouette by a bright flash…

The clouds alight with bright blues and purples…

A streak of energy joining land and sky…

The rumble of thunder felt nearby…

Beauty and power.

Man of Stone

[Begin scene]

Inside a church…

Cathedral ceiling, stone columns, stained glass windows…

An altar of stone, a marble statue nearby in a place of honor…

The statue, a man in flowing robes, his knowing eyes look at you…

His arms outstretched in welcome anyway

Acceptance, Forgiveness.
