White Stag- 3 Line Tales

tltweek35

There was always a shift in the air before the white stag appeared. A silver-edged dissonance that ran up her spine and made her temples throb. This time was no different. As she stood, balancing the buckets she’d filled in the Lake, languid snowflakes began to fall, covering the graying grasses around her.  It’s only once each year, she reassured herself. She tilted her head and caught her reflection in the water: two black eyes gazed back at her, framed by majestic, shimmering antlers. Where she’d stood, an emerald hue emerged within the grass, and it followed translucent footprints to the village.

Farm and country – and all the smells, textures, sounds that go along with them – are my happy place. Born and raised in the city, the constrained bustle of it has always felt confining; it’s never been ‘home’.

Thank you, Sonya, for this 3 Line Tales weekly photo prompt!

Colourful – fpj photo challenge

Yay! Thank you, Dutch goes the photo! for this great photo challenge. Let’s live it up with some colour! Living in a part of the world where the seasons change in dramatic and extreme fashion, we in Ontario are very attuned to and appreciative of the swings of colour in our environment. So, of course, I had to throw in a couple of my favourite Autumn pictures. Fall in this part of the world is spectacular. It is like walking through a dreamscape; one can’t quite believe it’s real. And, just to support that theory, it is gone before we know it, replaced by greys and browns, and sprinkled with white. Sometimes, if we’re lucky, a few flurries fall while the colours are still vibrant, and it is absolutely incredible to see. I don’t have a good camera, but I did capture one of those moments this past fall, and have included it here…Enjoy!
