Time to Party for Spring


Before the inundation of tourists, the sand reveals only tideprints.
Waves break under bluebird skies.


Coastal estuaries cycle through mudflat and flood,
rocking clammer boats in empty currents.


Clouds whisk across the sky, 
bringing more rain but also brilliant greens.


In my garden, bumblebees hum over wild violets,


While chartreuse shoots tickle desiccated leaves...


And beer cans are tossed 
from the dorms next door.

Wow. That is a powerful message. I'm sad that the citiots are coming back.

So peaceful!!! The wild violets are beautiful. Maine is in my top 5 to visit. Great photos as usual.

There's such harmony in your photos! :-) Except for the last one, of course.

Greetings from London.

Maine's department of tourism should hire you--such a beautiful place as captured in your photos! Sadly, that last photo could be taken anywhere:(
