Light is galloping across the hills

Glistening  roan, bay, and dun.

Splotches of palomino and skewbald

reflect the canter of the clouds

across the sun.

The light was so fantastic above Kalamalka Lake on the drive home today.  I wish I’d had a camera to capture the long light, and gleaming fields of gold, russet, and brown above the lake!  Words will have to do, though Michael Russell’s beautiful photo will give you an idea of the hills and the cantering clouds, at least!

  1. What a beautiful photo, wow! I love ‘the canter of the clouds’ – lovely poem:-)

    • Isn’t it? I was surprised how I couldn’t find any gorgeous shots of the long light I always love to see as I come north along Kalamalka Lake in late afternoon. The valleys and hills are absolutely stunning.

    Thought I’d share my cloud poem with you it’s posted somewhere among my scribbles –

    See them scut across the sky
    They have no wings but still they fly
    They look like little balls of fluff
    They call them clouds that fluffy stuff.

    I see them – you’ve provided a perfect lyrical accompaniment except for neglecting the rabbit picking his nose in the bottom right hand corner! Otherwise perfect, thank you.
