Snowlight ...

“Kindness is like snow – it beautifies everything it covers.”
                    ~  Kahlil Gibran
                                        ~ 1883-1931

The banks of the Jordan Creek are draped in snow as sunlight sprinkles its sparkling beauty on the creek’s icy waters at Trexler Nature Preserve, Schnecksville, Pennsylvania on a January afternoon soon after the historic Blizzard of 2016.

In a winter shorn of snow until the blizzard, the storm plonked 31 inches of snow on nearby Allentown in a 24 hour period.

Blossoming In The City ...

"Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit."
                                                       ~ Khalil Gibran
                                                                       ~ 1883-1931

Kwanzan Cherry Trees line the city with beauty in May
on North Ott Street near Cedar Creek Parkway,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

There are 46 Japanese Flowering Cherry Trees in the vicinity.
The original trees date to the late 1950s or early 1960s.

Dreams Come To Light ...

"Like the seeds dreaming beneath the snow
your heart dreams of spring."
                                       ~ Kahlil Gibran, "The Prophet"
                                                             ~ 1883-1931

The afternoon sun dances lightly over the snowy
creek after a fresh March snowfall, painting a dreamlike late winter
scene at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Good Morning, Robin Hood Dell

the heart finds morning 
and is refreshed."

Stirring ...

"Love is the only flower that grows and blossoms
without the aid of the seasons."
                                                               ~ Kahlil Gibran

I love magnolia trees, and this breaking bud shows spring was stirring 
this weekend at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Painting Memories

"Art arises when the secret vision of the artist and the manifestation of nature agree to find new shapes."
~ Kahlil Gibran

Filled with beauty, the Kreidersville Covered Bridge in Allen Township, Pennsylvania was built in 1839. The bridge is loved for its great history and tranquil setting by the Hokendauqua Creek. It is the only covered bridge left in Northampton County. It was the perfect place for a summer daydream last weekend.
