'Salish Sea Arbutus'

"Once there was a lovely old Arbutus tree
She clung to the bank and leaned out over the sea
Dancing with all those winter gales took its toll
Now she lies across the beach 
Arms entwined with the Salish Sea
It is the way it was meant to be..."

"Winter's Retreat"

'The grip of winter slowly softens
along with the warmth of eventide 
standing and listening for the cavorting otter family
that just played past your silence
the early spring air brings different scents
and the promise of swallows in the sky...'

'The Turning Tide'

'The tide turn begins, 
life in and around the sea quickens,
birds lift off from the rocks in a noisy snow storm,
swells rolling in from the open Pacific increase in size and intensity,
below fish feed and frenzies fill the sea in flashing silver,
birds funnel into the boiling shoals of bait,
the natural circle of life plays out in perfection,
as it has throughout time...'

There is a moment in time,
on certain very special days, 
just before the mauve and deep blues of
nights imminent arrival,
when the setting suns final touch
of light and colour,
turns the world within our sight,
into a display of
natures glorious beauty...
