Clouds

Last Friday afternoon was gorgeous.  It was one of those sunny, blue sky days that’s just so uplifting.  The sky was filled with the most beautiful clouds–enormous, puffy, cumulus clouds.  They were really quite majestic.  I got a little carried away and took tons of pictures.

Still waters run deep

Originally posted on catterel:
The full moon smiled on the water Pale and still Till A casually tossed pebble Fractured her image She vanished And the watery surface silently said o O O An ever-widening mouth Of concentric circles Not a drop was left in its place Everything moved Rippled and swirled From top to bottom Of the pool Nothing was as before Then In silence the surface re-formed Smooth Still The moon smiled The pebble lay still on the bottom Unaltered.

Friday Farm Favorites: Happy Easter!
