Dragon in the sky

How glorious a greeting

The sky gives gives

When a dragon of clouds

Sweeps in to breathe light

And colour into the world.

And on the day of the Spring Equinox,

The light declares: I’m back!

  70. You manage to capture the immenseness of the skies. Breathtakingly stunning. And again, your thoughts mesh with the images so very well.

    I must say, it looks rather cold over there. We’ve been caught in a warm pattern here – no real winter for the first time in memory. We’ve been in the mid 70’s (mid 20’s on your scale) for the past month. Hardly March weather for these parts.

    Happy Equinox! We all are on the same light to dark ratio for one day, now you get to have more light than we do for the next six months as we are not as far north…
