In a Garry Oak Meadow

As I stood painting this piece
I couldn't help but be awed by
these marvelous trees.
They have stood the test of time.
Encircled by development and
its accompanying pressures these towering
remnants of a very specialized ecosystem
still evoke the grandeur of nature.
This copse of Garry Oaks, perhaps more
than one hundred years old,
are an amazing testament to
 the resilience of nature. 
I hope these wonderful grandmothers
of the meadow can 
go at least one hundred more...

Of A Summer Evening

'Late of a summer evening
when from off the sea

a lively breeze
moves through the trees
Swallows and Martins soaring high
in the fast fading rays
of the summer sky
and the golden glow
of these halcyon days'
