Skywatch Friday: The Journey Still to Be Ours


“Last night the rain spoke to me slowly, saying, what joy to come falling out of the brisk cloud,  to be happy again in a new way on the earth! That’s what it said as it dropped,  smelling of iron, and vanished like a dream of the ocean into the branches and the grass below. Then it was over. The sky cleared. I was standing under a tree. The tree was a tree with happy leaves, and I was myself,  and there were stars in the sky that were also themselves at the moment at which moment my right hand was holding my left hand which was holding the tree which was filled with stars and the soft rain – imagine! imagine! the long and wondrous journeys till to be ours.” (Mary Oliver)

  7. The fingers of God are defused in wide soft bands touching the ocean. The waves gently roll inland to wash across your toes. The sea air, the ocean sounds, the gentle lull saying all is well. Nice SWF photo. Thanks for hosting the fun!

  8. lovely thoughts, we had a real downpour the other night with hail and flash floods in town. Was nice to feel safe inside while nature had a tantrum!

  10. I loved the contrast of light and dark in your photo. It is rather harmonious because the light is not gaudy but graceful, and the dark is not gloomy but elegant!!
    Thank you for hosting:)
