…because sometimes a reminder of all that is beautiful in the world can make you feel whole, even when you’re broken.

What beauty stirs your soul?

Watercolor Halo

Pink and purple blend
Together at sunset in
A watercolor sky,

While in the darking
East the rising moon slips on
A golden halo.

img_20161228_200201_427Sky of fire,
Burning bright,
Shower me in
Cleansing light.

Sky of fire,
Stay a while,
Linger gently
Like a smile.

Sky of fire,
Hold me tight –
Don’t go gently
Into the night.

Eastern Haze

There’s a haze in the
East. A pastel filter has
Settled over field

And stream, sky and stone.
The birds have ceased their trilling,
The sun has found its

Rest. For a moment,
All is still; the eastern haze
Recalls another

Time, a simpler time,
Like looking at a fav’rite
Faded photograph.

I captured this stunner of a sunset on my way to pick Bubbles up from church the other night.

If I hadn’t had to pick him up, I could’ve happily sat on the side of the road photographing the sky till the sun went down.  I know I’ve said it before (about a million times, probably), but I love our sunsets here.

What do you love about where you live?

Orange you glad it’s the weekend?

This week’s Daily Press Photo Challenge is all about the color orange.  The world is full of orange, and I can’t get enough of it (especially the color we had our living room painted in our last house – I think it was called Hearthstone or something like that – it was gorgeous and I could have painted every room in the house that color).  Since I’m such a sunset devotee, I decided to share some of my more orangey pictures (though a couple other things made their way in as well).

Don’t forget to check out some of the other orange posts, and have a great weekend! 🙂

The colors in the sky were almost as pretty as the colors the fading sun cast out on the snow. 🙂
