20: Autumn Dream

Autumn Dream

Leaves on the ground   hardly any sound
The wind is soft and sway
What is still here will soon fade away
The mystical atmosphere of the forest
Trigger dreamlike images    fantasy of the mind
The magic lake mirror merges the sky and earth

As i drift away swimming in a sea of thoughts
The depth of being    unfathomable
Traveling between waking and sleeping
Life unfolds itself like an infinite dream
Where beings of the old play ancient games
Their dance of illusion distorts reality

Slowly awakening from the catnap
I realize i dozed away again
I can’t help but wonder how i didn’t see
That the whole time sleeping
The world was upside down

Lake Dreams – can you help me out?

Last year i entered this photo into a local photo contest and to my surprise this photo was one of the three winners. And a few days ago i received a message that the organization behind that contest had entered my photo in yet another contest. So i thanked them and suggested they should share the photo on social media, since the most votes get awarded.

So i thought it would be fun to get some international votes for the photograph too 🙂
I would be very glad if you are willing to vote for this photo in the contest, let’s see if i have a chance. You may have to search for my photo, should be on the first page, but not sure as other entries might be added. You should click on ‘STEM’ (which is Dutch for VOTE)
Link to contest

ps. If you don’t want a newsletter, don’t forget to tick off the newsletter when you cast your vote. Or perhaps you want to learn some Dutch, then it’s ok 😛

And in the mean time, enjoy the scenery just as the Germans on the photo and me behind the lens did 🙂

As the leaves fall, colors change in the forest
The trees will soon be empty of foliage
Quietly nature awaits the cold times ahead
Stillness fills the air like a grand orchestra

Lake Dreams

Benmore klein

A while back in beautiful New Zealand we came across lake Benmore where there was no wind and beautiful mountains in the background, causing these dreamlike reflections in the water. On eof the highlights of our journey through the land of LOTR 🙂

Pathway to Plitvice

Plitvice is an amazing natural park in Croatia. Full of spectacular waterfalls and pristine water, it is a delight to walk through even if you have to share it with many thousand others 🙂
The park contains lots of well maintained pathways such as the boardwalk you can see here. The light shines through the trees and penetrates the water to reveal the colors hidden up until then. What a marvel to behold 🙂

Lake Reflections

Hilgelo met Riet en molen

The clouds reflect on themselves
As they drift off in the evening sky
Contemplating their existence
They’re sure to vanish in thin air

The water is receptive to all
View and motion touching
Its surface while the deep
Remains still and unmoved

The mill stands proud
As a tiny point in history
She carries the past in her bones
Long gone on this present day

Standing on the shore of the lake
I see that natural and man-made
Are not so different after all as
Each is contained in the flow of life
