What I was Grateful For Today.

This morning, driving to meet some friends,
against the brightest blue, the yellow gold, brightest gold, 
the yellow leaves of Autumn. 
My eye was caught. 
My breath. Oh!
And then out of nothing, scrambling the blue, a crowd, a melee,
a mad dash of rooks, tearing little holes in the sky. 

And then they were gone.


Oh, of all days to forget my camera!

What a beautiful day you had. It has done nothing but rain here all day. Can you send a little bit of that blue sky this way. :)

I have tagged you. If you would like to play, details are over at mine.

Love to you all xx

Lovely Ciara, The skies have been so crisp in the mornings over the last week! I could see a plane about 30,000 feet up this morning it was so clear. Amazing.

Melee... such a great word... it ought to be used more.

Enjoy the day that lies ahead, with or without camera.
