The Rains are over and gone..

24 hours of lovely rain
and a blue sky day today.

The lake is very full again
and ducks and coots and geese are blissfully happy.
I love to sit on this little jetty.

Waiting for a baby Moses to appear among the
raupo reeds?

This morning a dragonfly darted into view
and touched the surface of the water..tip..tip..tip..
as quick as a flash and gone.

He left three perfect circle ripples that spread and crossed on the water
and that is miracle enough for me today.

  1. You have the ability to capture beauty and profound goodness in a few well-chosen words. This is a perfect example. I have always loved the story of Moses in the Bulrushes and to see the miracle of the dragonfly... Such a fine way to start the morning.

  2. It's beautiful to view the world through your eyes, Joan.

  3. So lovely, so peaceful a scene you paint with your photos and with your words, Joan. Aha. Would't that be something, little Moses in his basket floating by? I love the "tip, tip, tip" of the dragonfly . . .

  4. Dragonflies are one of my favourite things.

    Reading your words, viewing your pictures is an exercise in grace and beauty.

  5. This is so serene after those storms.
