The Hues of Nova Scotia










The blue quenches
it soothes, mystifies, and humbles
forces introspection, a contemplation
on this microscopic existence.

The green enriches
it pleases, attracts, and livens
reverses inaction, a coercion
toward a meaningful existence

Hope you enjoyed the tides. I like the contrasts in the poem, and its brevity. Two snap-shots (of a mental land somewhere between H.D. and Dickenson) that say so much in a few words and bring a feeling for a real landscape.

blue makes us insignificant, and green elevates our existance!! I like this ...blue as sky and water/ or just sky stretching beyond? green mortality in eternity? he he , just what I saw I guess.
now this will be stuck in my head like Dover Beach!
truly I love this.

The azure skiies extending to infinity, the fresh aroma of soil or moist grass infused into cool breeze which caresses you as it flows past - a perfect setting to forget the grind of life and step into a calm tranquil world of peace.
I so love it !
From microscopic, insignificant life to a meaningful vivacious life - nice contrast !

You are the second blogger that I know that has mentioned Nova Scotia, with a longing in their words to see it again. It must be lovely.

Brilliant pictures.
Until I opened the comment window to post one, I thought you got the pictures from elsewhere.

But I was very pleasantly surprised that you, in fact, clicked them.

You have a really good eye :)
