My Saturday nights are fairly exciting 🙂 :
They consist of watching
The sun setting over the lake:
Preferable with a burnt orange sky
And balloons gently floating away on the horizon.
For more faraway horizons, please visit: Skywatch.
Choose a golden ray —
Melt into the air
And float away
Like a balloon riding on a sunbeam.

(It’s just the anklebiters, the dog and myself on a private island for a few days, so I may be a bit late in visiting you all.)
The long Scandinavian summer evenings are magical.
But some are more magical than others.
Especially when hot air balloons
Swoop through the golden skies
Before gracefully landing
Somewhere beyond the horizon.
For more magic, please visit: Skywatch.
Midsummer has been and gone, but for us, summer is only just starting.
Long days of spontaneous joys and laziness lie ahead.
And, best of all, the dazzling delights of late evening sunsets
Lie ready to unfurl their colours
And make us gasp in wonder.
For more spectacular skies, please visit: Skywatch.
They came in flocks. Hissing as they swooped over rooftops.
Everyone rushed out with cameras, hoping to catch some of their colourful beauty
As they flew overhead like exotic birds.
One balloon hovered so near that we could read the newspaper headlines on it.
Later on, when the yolk of the setting sun broke to spread its gold on the waters of the lake,
Anklebiter #1 turned to me and said, “Don’t forget to tell your readers about the day the news came floating by.”

I’m visiting my family back home in England, so I won’t be able to visit your blogs for the next two weeks. (I will have a few posts going up now and then so please do pop in for a visit.)
I wish you many magical skies!
