More than just sky high thoughts ©

A fine airing.

The roof not pointedly raising fist. But what protest would it be if so?

Rage against oppressive heat?

Thoughtless drenching when it only wants it’s day in the sun?

Anger at being raised functional rather than frivolous as unpredictable art?

Frustration at being nailed when the other dances loose and free?

A more positive slant of it’s a shy, awkward “hello” with wishful thinking: “Take me with you when you go?”

A sharp slope and a reaching arch: of origins quite apart.

Neighbors of a strange sort.

Both smug with one commonality: they inhabit sky, not dirt like grass.

Can’t build more joy than that.

      The sun was so red -right between the trees – and there were so many storm clouds still around. One of those times you just can’t take enough pictures. Thanks for brightening the comment basket

    Love that second photo. Haven’t we had some tremendous clouds the last few nights? And during yesterday’s downpour in the morning, I actually caught a low rainbow from a Lakewood shed. Now, if only the rain and the rainbow could entice a little cool front to ease on in. That would be perefction.

      That sunset was giving us the real red eye expressively. So intense. I ended up with a ton of pictures. Did you see the brilliant pink reflecting across the purple/darkclouds in the E-SE at sunset the other afternoon – stereo dueling sun scenes. It has been a quite a week for sky view. The past two mornings between 7-8 am the braodest most intense rainbows have briefly appeared between white clouds in blue sky. Ver short dramatic appearances. Did you manage to capture the one at Lakeway?
      Can’t wait for the cool-ish weather they are promising. We could use a fast moving front right now. Thanks for painting up a comment to leave.

    the rainbow is great… and maybe the end with the pot of gold is directly under this roof top?

      And maybe the house is on guard raising a sign warning there’ll be a fight if anyone is considering stealing that gold?
      Great observation, Easy. Thanks for adding in a golden comment

    Beautiful skies, rainbow, and reflection (both visual and verbal) 🙂
