As I tilted toward blue

frothy white below

unwilling to take a breath

for what if there were none?

skyward

hot Uganda Savannah

one more stop

 

As we wind our way to Uganda, we are uplifted by more than a plane. In Christ our hope is…

Outline of the Sky #haiku #photography #nature

autumn’s bright moon,
however far I walked, still afar off
in an unknown sky

face the path alone

destination beyond  reach

wolf knows the way

silent embrace

dawn’s mountain top caress

warmth rises

Today’s prompt from Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem is “The Unknown Sky.”

The photograph was taken of the Sierra Madre foothills when all was still and cool.

The photo has a sensual feel that I always feel compelled to write about *wink*

What lies in the unknown sky for you?

Over the hill’s crest

sun rays burst into day

between me and you

 

between me and you

all seasons fall away

springing forth anew

 

springing forth anew

patterns drawn pink and blue skies

pastel memories

Carpe Diem haiku prompt for today is Small Mountain. There are so many delightful prompts and people come join us in the land of haiku.

blue dawn photo rendering - shot Dec 2012

Dawn’s Palette

Horizon – you aim to please

You play with the sky

You taunt and you tease

Like a lover you reach

for her long wisps of hair

then you pull back

***

She in her many moods

at times recoils

in a sullen grey

other times

wearing blue is willing to play

“Games in the sky”

***

With colors and light

two lover’s ply

the world’s palette

in overhead sky

for all to see

endless expressions of love
