The moon, like a flower
In heaven’s high bower,
With silent delight
Sits and smiles on the night.
We’ve had so many cloudy days lately, that it is good to see the sun — even if it is just peeking out from behind the clouds.
“Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain’t goin’ away.” ~Elvis Presley
” … the darkening sky is streaked with splendid color as the sun drops slowly to sleep.” ~Unknown

“There are people who can achieve huge success in life, while adding a bit of fun and a splash of colour to this increasingly grey world.” ~Peter James
The day is done, and the darkness
Falls from the wings of Night,
As a feather is wafted downward
From an eagle in flight.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
This past weekend we saw a beautiful rainbow where both ends extended down and “appeared” to touch the ground. Unfortunately, no pots of gold.
“My heart leaps up when I behold A rainbow in the sky: So was it when my life began; So is it now I am a man … ” ~William Wordsworth
The vaulted void of purple sky
That everywhere extends,
That stretches from the dazzled eye,
In space that never ends;
A morning whose uprisen sun
No setting e’er shall see;
A day that comes without a noon
Such is eternity.
