Rolling clouds

The lull between big snow storms

Is painted in clouds of purple

Drama.jpg

And blue that roll over the landscape

As the sun slowly rises to say hello.

Stormy sky.jpg

And, of course, my poser Ruby

Looks good in that early morning light.

(Meanwhile, Simmie just prefers to run around 

In circles enjoying the snow! :-))

    Please send some of that snow my way because it’s been UNUSUALLY warm here in Philadelphia, the past three days. Today I actually started sweating while walking home from work because it was so warm and humid. Very strange for January.

    Have a lovely weekend, my friend!

  54. In Jamaica, they call the large waves which come ashore long after a storm has passed, ‘raw rage’. However, your ‘dark clouds’ appear more as a sleepy sedate version -raw without the rage. And yes Ruby does look good, even stunning, cast in dawn’s light.
