Photographs and Poetry by Penny Wilkes
The Sun Shines On
The sun never asks for applause while the moon gets all the credit for her glow and romantic stimulation. The sun sends energy into the morning sky. Clouds collect and play on his palette. The sun waits to outshine all droplets.
How many forget his nurture of tulips? Yet, the audience blames him for sunburns, the need for blinds, or those stormy days. The sun shines on beyond crankiness, swirls and provides a master show each evening.
The morning’s dew on hibiscus reflects the tangerine sunrise diverts focus beyond teardrops.
Imagine a bee’s view as a creative exploration to evaporate all fears. Collect a collage of rainbows to rise and shine above the storms of frustration.
Autumn by the Sea
The shadow dragon watches for words. Waves whoosh to shore, crackle into caves.
Blue satin rocks the sea's performance.
On Torrey pine branches, cormorants pose like banners.
Crisped by summer sun, grass mingles with the muse of daisies on trails of sandstone dust.
Ask to borrow wings for one day.
