Road Sweep Good One

I never tire of the view from our kitchen window here in rural Virginia.

This dawn foretold an oncoming rain storm

and a rainbow that was another missed photo-op.

A Virginia View

Is it a mirage or a dream,

or another sunrise in Virginia?

The Road OutSometimes I drive down my country road and simply have to stop and take a picture.

It’s not that there is anything magnificent to snap.

And it’s not the glorious foliage or even the way the light hits a leaf.

It boils down to a “feeling” and a need to listen to the world.

I do not have a zoom lens and this was taken with my cell phone camera, but I like it anyway.  There are so many colors in those clouds and the whole fuzzy effect is vaguely impressionistic.

Lingering Pink Cloud

A pink cloud in an otherwise ordinary sky

escapes the mundane white on blue,

A feather drifting softly through space,

floating away to dissipate 

  and return to imagination.

It  was another drizzly day, with darkened skies and looming clouds obliterating Virginia’s  Blue Ridge Mountains.  And then I felt the sun’s return and was forced by some inner prompt to look out the window.

Our days here in Virginia have lately been filled with drizzling rain, dipping temps and cloudy skies.  I wonder why the darkening clouds are still  amazing or why a changing sky captures the imagination.  It is surely unlikely there is a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow,  but today I looked for and found a silver lining!

 
Silver Lining

“Look for the Silver Lining” is a popular song with music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by B.G. DeSylva. It was written in 1919 for the unsuccessful musical Zip, Goes a Million. In 1920 it was published and reused in the musical, Sally, whence it was popularized by Marilyn Miller. Among others, the song was later covered several times by Judy Garland, whose version also became, and remains, well-known.  From Wikipedia.com .
