and the fall trees and pines

A piece from my Zen Moments portfolio, At the Lake series.
A row of cypress
lit up by the setting sun.
Their reflections making a fine
counterpoint to their horizontal lines.
More of a landscape shot
rather than a Zen shot,
but couldn't resist!

 These paired cypress trees
anchor the strip of land
that wanders into the lake.
The setting sun transforms them
to sillouettes and also
generates the reflections.

My book Dreams of the Turtle King is now available on Amazon.com!



All,

I are very pleased to announce that my poetry book
"Dreams of the Turtle King" is now available on Amazon.com.
http://www.amazon.com/Dreams-Turtle-King-Inspired-Florida/dp/1492841943/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1386462542&sr=8-1&keywords=dreams+of+the+turtle+king

It is a illustrated book of poems about what I found during my morning walks on the beach when I lived in Florida. An artist friend in Texas, Nancy Standlee, did the water color illustrations. These poems are contemplative in nature and are a perfect counterpoint to the cold weather we are having!
This book is written to be accessible and enjoyable for children AND adults. And it makes a great holiday gift or "stocking stuffer!"

It is available as a paperback for $12 a book.
It is also available as a kindle book for $1.99.
These are both full color editions.

If you are an Amazon.com Prime member, you may borrow the Kindle version for free, as well.

Right now the Amazon.com machinery has not connected these items together so that you can find both on one page. If you search for the title, you will find both versions and can then select which one you want to purchase.

Thank you so much for your support and happy reading!!

Note:
If you have an older kindle that is in black and white rather than color, you can download the Kindle for PC or Kindle for Android programs from Amazon for FREE to read the book on your PC or smartphone.

A piece from my Zen Moments portfolio, At the Lake series.
The cypress on the water were 
wonderful stately trees,
Their forms varied in branches and trunk shapes
with their roots nestled in the water.
The released water from the dam
had brought more of the trees into
the body of the lake from where
they used to sit along the shores.
