A Day at the Lake in Haiku & Photos

great blue heron

only his reflection
wavers in the evening light;
great blue heron

-Andromeda Jazmon

clouds & lake

clouds over the lake
leave pools of blue sky
beside beach stones

-Andromeda Jazmon

water flower

runners by the lake
breath in the stillness; rushing
past nameless flowers

-Andromeda Jazmon

Friday Poetry is hosted by Kelly at Crossover. Enjoy your weekend!

Great photos. I especially like the crane, so upright and elegant.

I love the photos, particularly the heron. And your haiku is always spot-on. Thanks for sharing what looks like a perfect end to summer.

Beautiful. Is that great blue heron? I see those pretty often. I always wish I knew the names of the sea birds I see.

Sara said...

mmmm. I needed this lovely stillness today. Thank you.

Beautiful photos and very nice poetry.

I'd like to list your blog on our author's resources page, but I can't find your book submission guidelines. What's the best way for publishers and authors to contact you? What genres do you accept? Please let me know if you accept small press, independent, and self-published books, and what your submission guidelines are. Your site would be listed as an author's resource here:

http://www.stepbystepselfpublishing.net/free-book-reviews.html

If you review poetry, that would be great, because we only have one other reviewer on the list that does so.

Thanks! Christy

I was out walking a few weeks ago and saw a blue heron in a retaining pond. I wanted to take a photo, but all I had was my cell phone. The photo wasn't nearly as nice as the one you have here! I'm glad one of us could capture a photo!

Thanks for a few quiet moments beside the lake with you.

Summer is indeed winding down.
