Sunset Glitterbomb, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Petals ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #310

Perched
Beneath a sky
Of cobalt and lavender

While the dying sun
Throws glitter bombs
Off glass towers

But all I can see
Are three dots
Racing on the display

“Jason is typing”

This Schrödinger’s mobile
Holds two truths
Like petals pulled from a daisy

Each dot flashing in turn

Both are true
Until the dots stop
To reveal the nature

Of the final petal

Pastel Dawn, Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo Ferry, Strait of Georgia, British Columbia, Canada

Travel ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #294

Dawn breaks in pastels
Scattered city lights
Which had powered night
Fade with encroaching day
Soon enough extinguished

While the trail
Marking my departure
Rises from the darkness
Now a frothy white
Upon grey slate

Receding mountains’ majesty
Diminishes with steady progress
In some few hours to be lost
Behind the moon-swelled sea
Held fast by Earth’s own gravity

So go I
Beyond the realm
Of all I know
To places
I’ve not yet loved
