haiku for the Earth

ancient mountains
reflect in glacial lake –
endless blue skies



green lands and blue seas
veiled in wisps of white clouds –
our unique planet

These two are gems; very lovely. The first reminds me of the photos our son brought back from Alaska last July.

Lovely, truly lovely. They conjure in me such pictures. And they feel so hopeful.
