Afternoon light cascades onto ocean skin ,
momentarily turning the water a fine gold shimmer -
light dances merrily , shifting as the plane turns southwards - Equator barrier broken
Welcome to the Southern Hemisphere !
Cloud islands mirror
ground islands .
Puff ***** create architectural feats not known to humanity.
Flowing with the wind , creating substance out of thin air
the ultimate magicians trick ,
Above , thin wisps of stratus clouds brushstrokes seamless onto sky glaringly iridescent and soft all at once.....hey look! ..... way out in the distance , towering cumulus on their way to becoming cumulonimbus thunderstorms , steady growth of stacks even out when a cold air bank has been reached....the sky writes love letters to the earth
in his cloud postcard snapshots , yet - it is a serenade from them both
Earth offers the waters , the dust needed for the molecules to bind together - sky transmutes them in his belly - with shifting winds and earth curvature the color palate spectrum .
the offspring , playing in between two worlds
belonging to no one arriving and departing , shape shifters
whole landscapes whirling in amongst themselves , remain unseen, save for the few souls in tin machines hurtling along in the presence of natures finest high sky views.
Azure crisscrossed with opaque whites and rapidly turning dusk eggplant purples , wild and free form mingle with voluptuous orange streams of liquid light , hiding in the shadows the ‘day’ comes to an end ...
Does natures delicate hands sculpt the static water molecules knowing that there is beauty there ,
i have yet to fathom how such a gracious glory goes un noticed by many ,
luckily , for us , as we destroy every other aspect of earths eco system - the bold sky still remains ,
In the city doldrums and slums high rises
or slums on ground
or mansion view
the sky still bears dow the art works of sunset and rise ,
of cloud shifters and shapers , movers and shakers
still offers a connection to natures heart to remind us , of the magnificence that is our world. That is our home,
although - i have been told - under the surface or in this case , above the surface , here too has been attacked , pumping deadly toxic fumes into water ways
and lung ways
knowing all the whilst that this will do more harm than good
and here is where i , still struggle - i’m writing this on the plane -
a carbon dioxide emitting , fossil fuel guzzling , corporate ******* of a business .
but i need to get places , and go long distances in the shortest amount of time possible ..
