When Darkness Falls

When darkness falls

Light lies in wait

Painting with graying pallette

To the eye’s delight

The sky erupts

Displaying its mood

While the flower lies safe

In the forest’s gentle arms

Tenderly awaiting

The sun’s awakening

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.
