The fading evening light ~ all is well in the Bay!

The following photo's were taken in recent days and weeks and a poem I was inspired to write in an effort to capture the magical moments that were passing so quickly before my eyes from both above the Bay and down at sea level ~ along the boardwalk, main street, Alert Bay.

Fading Evening Light

The light in the sky is fading fast, pink and orange colours glow while grey clouds reach on upwards and will soon engulf the glory.

Scratching amongst the leaves many tiny legs thrust backwards as song birds uncover tasty morsels with haste in the fast fading light.

The cry of a loon heralds forth across the water that has now turned silver and shimmers, tinged with blue, the silence is broken in perfect haunting harmony.

The Bay is calm, the sights and sounds are mesmerizing and the boardwalk lights are brightened by twinkling Christmas lights that reach on outwards and surpass the fading light.

While there is much to worry and care about all around the world, here on our precious island rock Heaven surely is and for now, all seems at peace and is beautiful in our corner of the globe.
