Painted Sky

IMG_2291Painted like a giant watercolor, the sky is awash in orange and lavender. The clouds are varied, from misty fog bank to lightly scalloped eddies of wind-driven moisture. The tree silhouettes are the western edge of my yard, a scene familiar and dear to me. Over nearly a quarter of a century, these trees and I have grown a lot, side by side, together. They are like family, providing a backdrop to my existence.

    How nice to be able to mark your growth by the trees 🙂 Though I suspect you can’t quite measure personal growth the way you can that of a tree.
    Lovely sky, btw!

    Somehow you have captured a feeling of patient omnipotence. It is more than a sunset. It’s a reminder. Thank you for sharing with us.
