Within the Sacred Sky

The sky today was a tumult of clouds. I stood on a hill and looked west, where storm layered upon storm in all the colours of old water, old forsaken wishes; and then I looked east, at a gold-washed blue softened with white towers of cumulonimbus; and everywhere around me was a sodden peace.




I breathe the sky, it flows through me. Its moods, its memories. My heart is wrapped in storms, and dust from mountains, and sunlight, and chemical toxins.



(I am growing quickly disenchanted with keeping the new facebook page for this weblog. It seemed like a good place to keep links, but I am not very comfortable with the various energies around it. I struggle with facebook in general, and it may be that the new page is one step too far for me.)

  1. Beautiful, captivating photo. I didn't join it, because my use of FB is limited. Hugs Su

    1. I use facebook for connecting with friends and family, which is partly why I started the page - so I didnt have to reject those who wanted to friend me, I could send them to the page instead. But I dont really like having too many fingers in social media pies.

  3. It is the eye and mind behind the camera that creates the image. Your cheap little camera does beautiful work.

  7. Heart stirringly beautiful--the picture you painted with your words is as breathtaking as your photograph.♥

    I didn't get to comment on your last post, but I hope you don't mind my saying that I am sad I will miss some of your thoughts. I like to read everything you write, but alas, I cannot have a personal Facebook account for a myriad of reasons.

  8. Beautiful photo <3
    And I understand if you choose to delete the Facebook Page... Facebook is my least favorite method of social media, and I only use it to share links to new posts.

  9. FB isn't what it used to be. I had a following of over 200 and only about four saw what I posted on a semi-regular basis, and eventually that whittled down to zero. I have a personal page for only family- photo sharing, baby updates. But I deleted my "writer" page. Too much effort to be invisible (at least, that was my conclusion).

    And the photo is magnificent, Sarah. If you ever sell prints, I want this one.

    1. Thank you Raquel. I can send you the original file if you'd like to print it off for yourself.

      Hope all is well with you and the little dreaming one.

  12. Stirring image! And I like the idea of 'sodden peace.' I understand about FB. I go there to check in on friends on occasion and to approve some of the links and tags I've been included in. Overall, I find the energy there to be draining.
