Skywatch Friday: Things That Sway

(Photo by Kathie, June 12, 2008 6:23 p.m. MST)

I love things that sway in the wind;
The flowing grass,
The dancing trees,
The willow boughs,
The bamboo leaves,
All caught in a breeze,
Or windy gale,
Toss and sway
And sigh and shake,
Reflected in an azure lake--
Their fluid motions
Their restless leaves
Reflected in my inner sea.

  18. Oh, how could I have missed this? I have your other site bookmarked and have forgotten to return here after my first visit. The swaying grass, and your words remind me of my daily walk through our meadow. I love it especially when there is a slight breeze and everything is alive with flow and movement that blends everything all together; grasses and wildflowers, dragonflies, bugs and butterflies. This is a great sky watch entry!

  19. Very beautiful words and photos. I love many of the same things. Glad I stopped by.
