“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
Hello there! Today’s prompt for Stream of Consciousness from Linda G. Hill is: “…write about whatever is beside you when you read this prompt. Not when you sit down to write, but whatever is beside you right now. Take note of it if you think you might forget. Enjoy!”
So, I read this prompt while jogging in a deserted field area this afternoon. Em from Earthly Brain shared a prompt as well: “ If I could learn a lesson from the clouds, it would be …“. An impromptu poem materialized in my head. Enjoy!
Puffy cotton balls reflecting brilliant light Today I greet the day as it comes Drifting along with the wind
It’s somewhat difficult for me to play hide-and-go seek as I often gleam behind nature
No matter though, Sunny and I Our friendship is billions of years old Together on the best and worst of days
A generous spirit today Frolicking among you Revealing a wondrous site
Red beauty loves sun Crawls upon distressed trellis Strives upward towards sky
I walk towards a home that gives me great comfort and rest. While waiting at the door, a beautiful red bloom catches my eye. The oak provides support for the flowers’ fragile vines that feels and clings onto the tree’s rough surface. Against the blue sky, the leaves glisten and the bark’s crevices enclose pockets of darkness. An assorted array of textured formations fit seamlessly together to form the trunk. The shadows in its valleys does not detract from the floral’s allure. The morning light is flattering to the red pigments in the petals. A miracle of life welcoming me to enjoy its presence… a soul blossoming in nature…
Hope you are enjoying your Saturday morning! For those of you in the U.S., hope you enjoyed Independence Day! You ever had one of those days where you wake up, and all of the sudden you wondered where did the past two months have gone? I’m sorry I’ve been out without warning! Life just took me up in a whirlwind of events & activities:
Family reunion – Lots of fun times reconnecting with family and enjoying delicious food
Brother’s car accident – Thankfully, he’s fine though initially had neck strain
Purging my space of clutter – Primarily having a difficult time throwing away my lecture notes and things of sentimental value
Master’s program classes – Fun to imagine myself as a CIO making decisions
Seagulls are wondrous creatures as they are flying over the ocean. I love watching them catch my crackers as I throw them up in the air as I’m standing on the pier. As I’m working on this photo challenge, I am thinking of a book one of my professors gave me a book called “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” by Richard Bach. It’s a beautiful homily about a seagull learning about how to fly and what it means to fly.
