Fingerpainting In The Sky

THE EVENING was mostly a blank sheet of blue sky shared by the moon and setting sun recently over Kwomais Point Park.

As the sun descended on the horizon, a colorful palette emerged as though a celestial fingerpainter swept golden hues and charcoal grays over the scene.

The picture darkened ...

and swirling clouds were sent adrift as if by an artist's hand.

    BLESSED BE THE SKY

    Cloudy, clear,
    Bright or drear—
    Blessed be the sky!

    Sun and star,
    Near or far—
    Blessed be the sky!

    Rain or snow,
    Sunset glow—
    Blessed be the sky!

    Wind or calm,
    Healing balm—
    Blessed be the sky!

  18. Absolutely beautiful, and so deeply peaceful! I can practically smell the pines and hear the loons! And your descriptions of them are perfect, it does look like an expertly rendered finger painting. I love them all, but the second and fourth ones are my favorite. Just glorious!

  19. A poetry in the sunset sky has become more poetic with your description. Really "fingerpainting in the sky", and looks like "marbling in the sky", too.

  21. Spoken like the mother of an artistic daughter, my dear friend. You paint with words what your camera records.
    Beautifully done, a piece of heaven so close to home.

  23. "Celestial fingerpainter" - I really can't think of any description that could possibly top that, Penelope. It's quite simply, perfect!
