Skyward

Macro Photography: "If I were a Bug" - I really love macro photography and how it can put things into different perspectives or show more details that are usually overseen or ignored. I like the idea of movement that shows more details than what would originally meet the eye.

These days I’m looking skyward
Into the blue of the morning, the grey of the storm,
And the gold of the sunset.
The peak breaks the clouds to let the sun filter through.
Breathtaking.
It was a hawk that I saw, I think.
It cut through the wind, soaring higher than the very mountains.
And I ran and I laughed and I jumped,
But the wind did not take me up to join it.
Still, these days I’m looking skyward.
Because the ground is full of flowers and trees that reach up as hard as they can,
And me, too. I’m reaching up.
I’m ready to fly.

P.S.
I will be gone for a little over two weeks! Candence Declan will be gone as well, so Monday Madness will return probably July 27th. Anyway, I'm off to camp and I can't wait! I will have lots of stories to tell when I get back, I am sure. Until then, as the Guatemalans say, may God richly bless you.

    And me, too. I’m reaching up.
    I’m ready to fly." And that...! You, girl, are GIFTED. I am so stoked to have found your blog. You have a new reader!
