Hope all settles down nicely for you soon.
Great photos, very creative and expressive haiku. Thanks for sharing these.
I felt a little out of focus on Tuesday, but it turned out to be nothing other than that my new dentures were a little tight.

Have a good weekend, Boonie

Dear Ms. Foxy... The photos are lovely, and the words poetic, even as they seem to share your heart with us. Like before, I will send out the good vibes, the peacefulness, the positive energy in hopes that it makes some things come into focus. Take what you need and send onthe rest to others.
Thank you for sharing.

Wondrous photography and meaningful lines,
The quality of being certain and definite is clarity
and you know exactly what you are doing.

Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers.

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture.
