Changing Skies

Indian Bloggers

Are you a sky-gazer? I am.

Gazing at the sky (particularly at dawn and dusk), taking in all the changing hues and morphing forms each and every minute is something one really needs to seep in when staying amid skies! One definitely can not miss it! 
The vast expanse of sky often reminds me of the limitless possibilities...yes, limitless!

Some sky pictures from my balcony:






Isn't that white streak just beautiful!!!

Look at that tiny twinkling star!!!

Sharing a poem by Erin Hanson (just LOVE her poems!):

I dreamed I stood in silence
Beneath a shattered golden sky,
While the stars rained down like tears
Blinked from a universal eye.
And in my fist I held
All that I'd ever truly owned,
Yet my fingers closed on air,
Clutching only my skin and bone.
But something in that gesture
Hinted at more than I could see,
That like my skin the air
Was just as much a part of me.
And I'd found that I owned nothing
For I already had it all,
I was the gold that streaked the sky
And every star still yet to fall.
It was this that I held onto
When I finally awoke,
To find a sky the brightest blue
That showed no sign that it ever broke.

Finally one of my paintings:

I love that shade of blue! Thanks for sharing the poem, it's beautiful!

Arti said...

Such a lovely composition capturing the various colors and moods in the skies, Deepa. I love gazing at the infinities of the skies too! Nature never ceases to amaze us with its magic. Love your painting as always, it's like a mirror reflection to the poem, so beautiful and soothing.
