Sometimes the rising sun (arriving later and later every day)
Sets the trees aflame;
As for the clouds,
They give double joy:
Once in the sky and once in water reflected.

Is that an angel —
Or an elephant —
Trumpeting across the horizon at sunset?
(In other news, WordPress informs me
That I’ve been blogging for nine years!
Thank you for sticking with me all these years.)

Call the clouds what you will:
Or pink candy floss.
They are still just as beautiful.

I love dramatic skies —
When layers of clouds
Looks like threatening mountains,
And come crashing down
In rolling veils to land beautifully
On a reflecting lake.

An unseen hand
Turned the bowl of the sky upside down,
Scattering clouds into the water.
(And, of course, it always helps to have a dog in the picture too.)

Henry David Thoreau once wrote, “You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.”
Many years ago, I woke up to an amazing sight:
Fields and fields
Of foamy clouds in the sky!
I had to stop and talk to those clouds
For a very long time.

It’s been very grey here –
So grey that the newspapers are saying
We’ve had fewer than 8 hours of sunshine so far this month.
In fact, it looks as if even the ducks are complaining about the lack of sun!
There are moments of beauty, though,
When the grey and the bird
Look like a silken painting.

It’s a new day, a new season.
The rising sun reminds me of the beauty in the world.
Satin reflections on the lake
Bring a sense of calm;
And my jetty always has the most
(This is Ruby: Oscar’s great-granddaughter, who is now our dog.)

When dawn breaks
In a purple swirl
And the promise of
A beautiful day —
Then the best thing to do
Is say thank you
And dive right into the present.

The nights are drawing in,
So Oscar and I made some time to enjoy
The calm of a beautiful evening,
Making sure we studied the clouds
From several different angles and jetties.
A bird flew by,
The clouds kissed the water,
Serenity and silence settled in for the night.
