A Breath of Sky

“Come watch with me the shaft of fire

That glows in yonder West:

The fair, frail palaces

The fading alps and archipelagoes

And great cloud-continents of sunset-seas.”

Thomas Bailey Aldrich

Skies have been amazing this month: color-rich sunsets; mid-morning blue skies with one white puff of a cloud, moonglow on full moon nights, cloudy skies with layers rippled in every hue of gray, and great white cloud continents floating calmly overhead. There’s a peace to be found in taking a deep breath of sky.

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

Who Can Clutch It?

 

“The beauty that shimmers in the yellow afternoons of October,

who ever could clutch it?”

Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nature” –

 

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.

Talking of Rain

 

“The aspens at the cross-roads talk together

Of rain, until their last leaves fall from the top.”

Edward Thomas, “Aspens” –

 

The cool morning breeze is whispering to the trees that rain is coming. Hackberries and elms are dropping their golden-brown leaves a few at a time. As they drift slowly down, I breathe deeply of this moment of peace.

Nurture peace, cultivate kindness, and carry the calm.
