Sunday August 15, 2010 Sunset in Taos, New Mexico
There are those moments in life that are just so incredible! I wish sometime it would stay that way forever, but change it must. The skies in Taos are the most beautiful ever. They are breathtaking, they seem to fill your chest and it is hard to breath, it is all just too beautiful! Saturday night was just this kind of night.
Actually every sunset is beautiful and the amazing thing is every day the sky is different, and when I say different I mean dramatically different.
Tonight the color changed so quickly. I looked out and the clouds seemed different. I got the camera and suddenly the sky seemed to be on fire.
And then just as quickly the fire went out. I was alone, the beautiful color was gone. There was only that little fingernail of a moon keeping me company.
It was like a symphony of color exploding before my eyes, and I swear my ears could hear it, too. Now all was quiet on the mesa. The beautiful colors that had painted the sky, had faded to grays -- still beautiful, but silent, not a sound, not even the chirp of a cricket -- which is often heard in the late afternoon. It was as if the whole world knew that we had just witnessed an extraordinary event, and as in the symphony hall, after the completion of a performance, you could hear a pin drop. Night fell quickly on this summer night. All is magic!
SUNDAY, AUGUST 15, 2010 Prompt 129: Beginning
What is the beginning,
But the other side of life's coin,
I was born in the middle.
And the middle is where,
All the little juicy things happen.
Sunday 160 Summer Heat
The heat of summer
Makes me crazy
I long for winter's
Today promises another
The air so hot
I think I'll die
All is hot
Melancholy stops my heart
