Morning Dew





I took this on Sunday while the grass was still shimmering with the morning dew (as usual my camera isn't up to it). Scamp has improved his modelling skills and has stopped directly in between the trees which lends this pic its pleasing symmetry. Behind can be seen an avenue of poplars which makes a majestic runway for himself, and in this photo he strikes a noble pose.

I am moved to a haiku or two.


Lord of All He Surveys

This is my kingdom
A king of infinite space
My morning progress

Mystical morning

Diamonds of dew
Sprent with the lore of druids
Magic in nature
That second one needs a bit of explanation because apparently the word 'druid' means saturated with the dew of knowledge. That first pic shows some 'magic mushrooms' (or quite a close approximation of them, as I think they are a bit smaller) and no, I haven't been eating any! Though I notice there are some people round here who do collect them.

I love the picture of Scamp! Beautiful symmetry. You live near such a place? Wonder of wonders. I love this technique you've done -- the mix of your pictures and your haiku. A pleasurable double whammy!

Bev, I think you have a special haiku talent and look forward to reading more of these gems. I wish for you a brand new camera like Debi has so your picture quality would match your poetry quality :) Beautiful entry today.
