Who Paints the Sky?

Photo: (c) Jamie K. Reaser

Who paints the sky? And, why has it
taken me so long to think to ask?
I want to know who is up there
to love, and how I can bargain, if
I might, for more days to end like
this one:

in attentiveness,
in wonderment,
in devotion.

  1. Jamie -- this photo reminds me of my impression of bare trees against dawn or twilight sky as black lace. I so enjoy your take on Nature and wonder!

    1. I like the black lace metaphor, Jeffrey. Thank you. These are members of the black walnut tree grove that embrace my cabin. Nature's blessings to you...

  2. Thanks, Jamie. What a lovely spot you must inhabit there -- judging from all the beautiful photos you capture!

    1. It's a magical place, Jeffrey. If you are ever in central VA, please come for a visit at the mountain homestead.
