Skywatch

Skies of love

When the golden sun

Dazzles on the water

Jetty

And it’s still bright

At gone 9.30 in the evening —

Heart

Then the heart fills with

Wonder and love.

Heart hands

Enter the dragon

Dragon fire

Sweeps over the lake —

Dragon's breath

Fierce, beautiful

And dramatic.

Fierce

The dragon sweeps onwards

Leaving behind memories

Of purple rain.

Rain

Facing the storm

What is it that approaches

From stage left?

Drama

Can it be those heavy brocades

Weaved from storm clouds?

Wow

Or the rain coming down

In bars of coloured clouds?

Stormy

Simson did his best to pose in the storm —

But I think he was secretly relieved when I took him and my camera home.

Poetry

Watching a flock of birds

Birds 1

Dance across the fiery canopy of the sky

On flame-tipped wings;

On fiery wings copy

And flying beyond the silver sliver of the moon

Is pure poetry.

Fly me to the moon

Hot red chili pepper skies

Chili peppers are measured in Scoville units,

With the spiciest pepper in the world scoring over two million Scovilles.

I think these red hot clouds would also score highly, don’t you?

Hot red chilli

And what better way to enjoy a vibrant sunset

Than with a good furry friend!

Sunset with a friend

Breathtaking

Sometimes a sunset

Is so breathtaking

That all you can do

Is stand there humbled

Exhiliration

And drink in all the wonder.

Peace

Floating in clouds

 Henry David Thoreau once wrote, “You must not blame me if I do talk to the clouds.”

Sea of clouds copy

Many years ago, I woke up to an amazing sight:

Fields and fields

Of foamy clouds in the sky!

Endless clouds copy

I had to stop and talk to those clouds

For a very long time.

(All photos from my archive of 2010.)

Stormy

When a storm draws in

With curtains of cloud,

Stormy sky

It’s time to enjoy

The drama of the sky.

Catching fire

The early morning sky caught fire

And spread its blaze of glory

To the mirror of the lake.

Spring sparkles

We celebrated the spring equinox

With snow and blue skies.

Blue skies

Ice drops

Sparkled from daring buds —

Snowy buds copy

 

The fuzzy catkins

Looked lovely in their cold diamond earrings,

Ice drop

And the hazel flowers

Glittered in the sunlight.

Even though it was still winter on a spring day —

Those sparkly skies were beautiful and uplifting.
