Lazy Days of Summer

The stillness that once was

Pampas grass crumpling under the weight of the snow

Is nothing more than a memory

Gaia’s children join in the chorus honoring their mother

 The coldness that permeated every cell

Early March 2015 snow storm

 Has now been replaced by sun-baked warmth

Gaia’s removed her white blanket of winter and put on her summer party dress

  1. . . . hmm . . . looks as if one Gaia’s children has become a meal for another of her children.

    Nice photos, and I sometimes prefer the stillness; no motorcycles running around making a ruckus.
