Colors that blend over the land
Like an impressionist painting
Done by Nature's hand
Always carry a special charm
Out on the prairie.
A cluster of Red Milkweed Beetles
A Buckeye and four Pearl Crescents gather on some road apples.
I was getting a shot of this dragonfly when a tiny grasshopper joined the frame.
This reminded me of the song by Kansas,"Dust In The Wind" on a windy fall day
Soft moonbeams caressed the road in front of me. The full moon lit the way as I traveled through the early morning a few hours before sunrise. A few small storms began to form to either side of me and soon were behind me with their tiny light shows of lightening. Very few people were moving at this beautiful time and it showed me many thoughts and feelings I had set aside. I thought how I had spent many full moons this summer in my tent, waking to see my world lit up. It is a restful phase I enjoy , wanting to be outdoors and bask in it's happiness. As the sun rose behind me it tried to peek through the storm clouds, and only showed at intermittent moments to remind the world a new day had begun. Traffic began to pick up on the tiny two-laned road and I met many people I may never meet again. I am but a traveler, from the past into the present.
