Sky Watch Friday

4 Dec

Clouds and Blue Sky

Cloudy Sky, April 2006

Reaching into the past,
entices me to self-reflection.
Will that hint of blue help me to shake off this melancholy?
I hope.

Sky Watch – Pigeons O’er the Mission

20 Nov

Sky Watch at Mission San Juan Bautista

Pigeons roost.
Startled, they fly in great circles
and settle again on the old tile roof.
Do they know why the bells toll?
Do they feel the prayers of those within rise up past them?
Do they guide them up to Heaven?
Or do they watch them pass and shake their heads, wondering at the ways of people.

Leaden gray
Vital, life-giving rain
Nourishing plants and souls

Pumpkins 2008

Along the coast
Fog hugs the shore in a wet blanket
Everything grows in the rich soil
Moistened by the air, cool but not too cool
And pelicans fly over the artichoke fields

After visiting some skies, make sure you stop by I and the Bird #87.
Birds and skies go hand-in-hand, don’t you think?
