Sun, Seas & Flowers

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.
