Tranquillity


Tranquillity is innocence in a garden.


Tranquillity is light emanating from a flower.


Tranquillity is nothing but the sound of leaves in the breeze.


Tranquillity is sunlight shining through trees.


Tranquillity is stars of light reflected on water.


Tranquillity is a field of daisies suntanning.


Tranquillity is a cool place in the shade on a warm summer afternoon.


Tranquillity is the end of the day
when the work is done, all the flowers are gone
but they still reside in your heart.

What I enjoy about summer is spending lots of time outdoors in the peacefulness of nature. Life can be so hectic sometimes, and I just love quiet moments. I took these photographs in the beautiful countryside of New York. This summer, I'm celebrating tranquillity! This is my contribution to "Seasonal Celebrations" where Donna at Gardens Eye View invites us to contemplate our thoughts on the season. Enjoy!

    1. Translation:

      Tranquillity is there
      All around us
      If you look for it
      You will find it

  22. I like the 'old time' feeling of the farm cart, monochrome is perfect for this sot.

    1. Thank you, Wayne, yes, that's why I thought black and white would work--the farm cart gives it a vintage look :)
