Skies of late August



I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. 
~e.e. cummings





To see the Summer Sky
Is Poetry, though never in a Book it lie -
True Poems flee.
~Emily Dickinson

"...though never in a Book it lie,
nor on computer screen."

Yes, pixels just don't compare the the real thing.

I like your pixels, Ms M.

A day that brings me e.e. makes my day.
“I will take the sun in my mouth
and leap into the ripe air
Alive
with closed eyes
to dash against darkness”

Spectacular, Ms.M. Beautiful colours and patterns. Once again this flatland dweller suffers cloud envy for your Idaho skies.

Thank you, Dive. Clouds of the envious type come about every so often.
