Feather in the Field

Stray feather whispers
Warnings of frost on grass blades
Fluttering, tangled

Suddenly swept loose
On summer's last breath of wind
Like a lost snowflake

I noted that the next 5 days are forecast as cold and rainy - so I made myself take an hour or so to play outside. We actually have snow forecast for Thursday.

I saw the northern lights a second time this week and I did try to photograph them, but to no avail. The next days currently scheduled (you can read that as forecast by University of Alaska aurora site) are Sept. 6th and Sept. 14th. In other sky news - there was a small, short lived sunspot (after a month of spotlessness) and there is also a possibility that it is a cycle 24 spot.

Hei from Europe!
What a lovely blog you have!
I enjoyed all.... :))
You live in such a great area and I would love to learn a bit more about it - as an artist I am always curious. :)
Have been several times in Canada though.
Just have a look at my blog:!
Actually two blogs, but you will surely find out...
Enjoy your day,
European Greetings,
