When I First Saw You

When I First Saw You

When I first saw you

That smile

Just broke my heart

It was off the chart

You called my name

You gave me your heart

I gave you my soul

You are my sweetheart

Yes my darling

You are my love

We are forever and more

Sealed with a kiss

A kiss of love

Yes darling

You are my love

My forever love

You prayed for me

To be delivered to you

You waited four years long

Then I came along

You can rest your fears

Wash away your tears

You are in my arms

You will come to no harm

Yes darling

You are my love

My forever love

You need not pretend

Not pretend, anymore

I am holding you

Our hearts will blend

You will never walk alone

So baby, don’t cry

Just look up at the sky

Then say thank you

When I first saw you

That smile

Just broke my heart

It was off the chart

You will never walk alone

So baby, don’t cry

Just look up at the sky

Then say thank you

Mica Bay, Lake Superior

MicaBay5

Mica Bay, Lake Superior. This was one of my enjoyable evenings spent exploring the shoreline of Mica Bay, Lake Superior.

The evening was becoming late as I observed this scene. The lake was rolling gently. The exposure would be long. That would create a dreamy affect on the water. More so in the foreground. I cast around for a suitable collection of rocks at the water’s edge. The composition soon came together in my mind. I set my tripod as low as I could set it. Therefore, allowing me to create an illusion of less water. To tighten the composition I shot vertically. Too much water would spoil the effect of the composition.

I stretched out on the beach. Being eye level showed me my composition as I wanted it. Thus I was able to create my scene.

 

 

I’m Coming Home

I’m Coming Home

Hey baby, It’s just me

Yeah baby, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Got my suitcase packed

The time has been long

I will just be along

On the next flight out

Leaving Toronto

I got the next flight out

I’m leaving the blues behind

I am going to bring

All my loving

I’m soaring above the clouds

Leaving them blues behind

Just you on my mind

Just you on my mind

I am flying to Managua

Looking for your love

To take your hand

To take your hand

Just to say, I love you

Just to say, I love you

Just to look above

Thankful for your love

Then walk you home

Like I wrote, in the poem

Oh yeah, just you and me

Falling in love again

Falling in love again…

Falling in love again….

Hey baby, It’s just me

Yeah baby, I’m coming home

I’m coming home

Got my suitcase packed

ON Duty

Jinotaga_0495

 

I was walking in a new neighborhood in Jinotega, that I had not been before. The lighting was good during a late afternoon. Rain was threatening. A rather large dog appeared on my left across the street.

The dog appeared quite suddenly, poking its head through a narrow opening in the metal door. There was a lot of vertical lines in the scene. Therefore I created a vertical composition.

Off We Go

 

Off We Go

The sun is coming up

Peeking through the trees

The birds are singing

The clouds are fleeing..

Grandpa gone to the barn

Off we go…

Through the ocean of grass

The wind she’s a blowing

Just me and the hound

Over the field,we bound

Full of joy and laughter

A boy and his dog…

Spring is here

The flowers are blooming

Across the field, down by the hedge

The grouse are drumming

Off we go…

An old logging road beckons

Calling to the hound

Down the road we bound

Off we go…

Hurrying past the barn

Grandpa milking the cows

Calling to the hound

His nose to the ground

Off we go…

A rabbit goes a running

The hound in pursuit

Just a baying

Off we go…

Through the sugar maple bush

That ole rabbit goes…

Twisting and a turning

We follow in a rush

That ole rabbit been around

For me and the hound

Now going slow…

Give up the hunt

With his tongue hanging

Comes the hound

Nose to the ground

Going slow…

Grandpa gone to the barn

Off we go…

Through the ocean of grass

The wind she’s a blowing

Just me and the hound

Over the field,we bound

Full of joy and laughter

A boy and his dog…

Oh My Gosh

Rivas, Nicaragua. At the ferry landing Lac Nicaragua

Oh My Gosh

I was told by my mamma

That I would meet, a lady

That would take my breath away

That was my destiny

Well just the other day

I saw my destiny

She stood there looking

Doe eyed and sweet

I was all a flutter

Tongue in a knot

She said hello

I thought I melted

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh

Well you know

I found my tongue

But all I could say

Oh my gosh

She wore a red dress

Tight and alluring

Those smoky eyes

Kept pulling me closer

Those soft red lips

Just a teasing me

Long black hair

Straight and sparkling

She got swinging hips

Oh, those shapely legs

What a pretty lady that

Oh my gosh

I’ll take you in my arms

Hold you tight

Tell you, you are my destiny

To the end of time

I just want to

I just want to

Make love to you

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh

Oh my gosh

I have met my destiny

She takes my breath away
