Wanaka

Wanaka

Wanaka is the wind that whips through my hair
It is the poplar leaves that dance in the light
And the scent of pine that reminds me of home
It is blue waves rolling onto an open shore
free from high rises, leaving only bold views
finished by grand mountains far away
Grapes grow here back beyond a shady path
Up a switch back or two, you’ll smell the sun
and run your hands through lavender
Wanaka is where a tree sways sideways
growing out of the water where sails glide
and boats lie waiting in dappled shade
Children fly above hilltops by fathers
swinging them in circles towards the sky
You touch nature here and it touches you back
tracing your fingers back in the tall grass
becoming part of the land and into the green
the blue, the sun, sky and night
Bending together in this dance called life

    Awesome pictures Sheri. I love your blog. You should have another show at the Birmingham Art Center with every single one of your pictures. It would be a big hit. I remember going to one of your show once.

    I wrote a post recently but don’t have your email address. Send me a note on fik825@gmail.com and I can send it to you.

    Hi Sheri…..Barry in shivering Michigan. Thanks for the beautiful beverage mug, which your aunt sandy thinks is hers by some twisted reasoning ..”Barry, this is better suited for coffee not tea! What the hey!! Glad you have left southeast asia and I hear you are too! New Zealand really is a wonderland…so much beauty to take in…. it can be overwhelming at times I suppose. Be safe and see you at the end of your adventures.

  6. hi sherry…thanks for the great looking mug…..like to have some history on it. Glad you made it back to civilization. Really like the rowboat in the woods. New Zealand looks like a wonderland of nature. Be well and see you back in the states in a few months.
