Skywatch Friday- Winds of Destiny

             Winds of destiny                               Which haiku do you
    Blow our lives thither and yon                          like best?
        Take charge, master fate                         First or Second?

           Winds of destiny
   Gentle breeze or forceful gale
        Blow toward Paradise
A little "color" added from Picasa for fun.

A Walk Around The Lake


I live on a golf course which has several lakes around it.  It is home to many forms of wildlife.  A short walk around one of the lakes yielded these shots.   How lucky am I!!!!

Ruby Tuesday-Peppermint Twist

A peppermint twist
Does it taste good as it looks
Only the bee knows

Behold the beauty
Perfect in every detail
God makes no mistakes

Mellow Yellow Monday-Perfection

Nestled among green
  Rose awaits discovery
Perfection revealed

  Glistening dewdrops
  Wash away night's calm slumber
  Day's fresh beginnings

Weekend In Reflection-Shadow Shot Sunday

I've never "combined" two memes before in one post, but this one worked so well, I just had to.  I was at Wichita Botanical Gardens leaning over to look into the pond at the fish--there I was---both my reflection and my shadow.  Instant "two in one"!!!  The picture below is of a huge albino catfish in the pond.

Skywatch Friday-Kansas Joy

Kansas farmer's joy
 Blue sky sunshine fertile soil
God gives what's needed
