color to my sunset sky

“Clouds come floating into my life,
no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky.”

Rabindranath Tagore
Indian Poet, Playwright and Essayist, 1861-1941

There is a sunset in my sky
Clouds are graying goodbye
Ther is love in this atompshere
Spring in my heart
Rebirth of life
In this touch of sky

Sunset in My sky

There is sunset in my sky
Clouds are graying goodbye
There is love in this atmosphere
Spring in my heart
Rebirth of life
In this touch of sky

“Everyday a new beginning of life
I’m thankful to get a taste of living life”

beautiful beautiful words .. perfect for the pictures .. the pictures were taken where?

but if the clouds carry rain it's nice .. not the storms but rain is a blessing ..

and the rainbow (colors) form when there is water (rain) in the clouds ..

I saw a funny skit yesterday on a show called "Rubber Chicken" which only airs in your country but I managed to find it by alternate means. Anyway, there were angels hanging out in the clouds when all of a sudden one yells "run for cover!" and they dive in the clouds just before a plane comes flying by. One unlucky angel gets pulverized by the propellors then another is cursing at the plane and calling it names as it leaves. It's pretty gruesome. Poor angel.

The stratums of meaning here...whether it is grey or blue or white or black or crimson-orange or pink or lavender or periwinkle or black, it is the color we embrace.

The photos frame the poet well.

These photos are absolutely gorgeous! I must admit, the rarer one carries a special meaning, as I'm usually on the wrong side of sunrises! - if that's what it is...

Lavinia said...

If these were taken in your city, it only confirms what I already feel about it.

I'm besotted with someone from there. Its all rather sad but the pictures he sends and those of yours that I see make it a little less so.

Maybe one day I'll get to see it all in person. In the meantime I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me such a beautiful window into Chicago. You'll never know how much it means to me.

A silent and loving companionship between the words and the pictures!
As always your sensitivity is reflected in your photographs!

The first photo -- glorious indeed. And the second, so calming. Loved the reflection on the water. ^_^ A wide space and a sky like either of these would do so encourage quiet moments with one's self. ^_^
