Fun photo challenge: White


_67

A solitary swan,

Gracefully glides,

Riding gleaming ripples,

Peacefully preening.

Siding with me,

Confiding about dreams

_69Black and white or colour? It was a quiet, sunny and warm day. I heard the swan’s feathers gentle moving in the breeze before I saw the beautiful ‘Queen of the water’, watching inquisitively and nearing the water’s edge. In the colour photograph, I feel the warmth of the day and enjoy the natural, special moment with the swan, gleaming in all its glory!   However the black and white brings out the serenity of the moment and fits Cee’s fun challenge theme of ‘white’.

Solitary Beauty

Inquisitive solitary swan
Glides gracefully
Along chilly rippling
Waters edge.
Bull rushes guard her nest.
