amidst the sunlight: a haiku

A walk by Edmonds Marsh

This morning I walked along the Edmonds marsh, grabbing this shot with my humble Samsung S20. The haiku flowed naturally.

I opted to add the text to the image directly via Canva. It’s been a while since I’ve done such and thought it would be good to stay in practice. Below is the text:

 boisterous birdsong 

Dusk In Edmonds

Dusk in Edmonds

such a graceful sight
as sun moves down the mountain
night’s beauty gathers


This is my contribution to the Fandango One Word Challenge for today: “such”. Not the easiest word to create from, I must say.

I took this photo a few days ago along the waterfront of Edmonds, WA, just a short drive from my house. It’s one of my favorite places.

Along the water: a haiku

along the water
under the sun, between trains
beside calm waters


I just finished up winter quarter, so I was able to spend the day as I wished. Today’s the projected last day of sun for a while, so I opted for a waterside walk today. Edmonds is one of my favorite places, so off I went.

A Walk Along The Waterfront

filled with memories

Most of my life orbited the Edmonds waterfront, just north of Seattle. My grandparents lived here. So many memories of walking with my grandfather here, sometimes riding the ferry. He loved talking with everyone, hearing their stories. His gift of listening appreciated.

the sun’s descent
behind the mountains
into the sea

I took this photo at Marina Beach, along the Edmonds waterfront earlier this week. It’s one of my favorite place on earth.

Shot with my Samsung S9, I’m quite amazed at the quality of images that I get from my phone. I also wonder how much better my photos would be if I used a better phone, or, egads, an actual camera.
