summer breeze on lake-
a wild flower fluttering
to the sound of waves
~ ~ ~
This weekend, I went hiking at Cranberry Lake Preserves, a beautiful nature preserve with hiking trails in North White Plains, New York. I took the first photo, which inspired my haiku, by the lake where I discovered pretty purple/pink wild flowers. There was a nice breeze, and the wild flowers danced to the rhythm of the sound of the waves.
My hiking became a bit more adventurous when I started walking up hill on this trail leading to the woods. There were a few rocks to climb and logs to step over. I just love being outdoors getting some great exercise in relaxing natural surroundings.
This next trail was down hill and led me to the lake. I could see the sun shining through the trees and the lake in the distance. What a peaceful and calming view.
Here is a view of beautiful Cranberry Lake. The hiking trail goes around most of the lake so I was able to see it from different angles. This is where I found the wild flowers.
On the other side of the lake, I found lily pads framed by tree branches.
After the hike, I stopped by the nature center. Kids who camp here were creating artwork. I especially liked the stars they made out of twigs. Nature is art. Art is nature.
