Farewell to Summer Fun

As the days grow colder

Memories grow fonder

Warming the heart

With candid moments

Playful opportunities

Minds exploring

Sensual learning

Sometimes fun turns to too much fun, as the day`s outing comes to an end. There`s a story behind that pouty face.

One is eager to pack up and the other finds it hard to leave the playful possibilities.

In the end, the seagull finds itself alone exploring the beach.

About Olga

I have always had an affinity for artistic endeavors and the beauties of nature. The power of the word combined with photography have become my creative spark.

    These photos made me smile, especially the legs sticking out of the water. As I read your poem, it occurs to me that children always find an opportunity to play – “sensual learning” carries on through the seasons. If only we could capture that spirit. Lovely poem.

    This is absolutely lovely! We have so much to learn from children who are just so…who they are. Your photos capture this so well. And your poem carries us along so nicely.
