In the Woods


in the woods--
a bench by the pond;
my refuge

I took this photograph in the countryside of my hometown, Pleasantville, New York. It's very peaceful here in the woods, sitting by the pond and contemplating nature. Serenity.

  7. Oh welcome to Nature Notes Loredana. I am happy to have you! I had to go and look up Pleasantville to see where it is located. I am east of Buffalo NY. This looks like the perfect place to spend an afternoon with a good book and a camera. You poetry is perfect for the photo. Thank you for linking up to Nature Notes and hope to see you again. Have a lovely week...Michelle

  8. Loredana this is really a wonderful picture and I love the haiku you have written at it.
    I don't know why you couldn't post your haiku by using the linky widget. I have tried it myself, but the linky widget works correct.

    Thank you for being part of Tackle It Tuesday, I am honored with your participation.
