A Place of Wonder in a Vast World

We were planning to take a walk around our apartment complex this afternoon. When I went outside, the first thing I saw were the bare branches of our “sentinel” trees which seemed to have fluffy clouds as leaves. I named them thus because they’re guarding and standing tall in front of our apartment. During spring, they bear pink flowers and the petals rain on us during fall.

I got so excited when I saw the cloud formations and requested that we’ll walk around Southpark Meadows pond instead. Hubby readily agreed and off we went. We like taking a walk there since we have an uninterrupted view of the skies.

More breathtaking sky views with approaching twilight.

Linking to Our World Tuesday & Skywatch Friday.

When we arrived at home, I wrote a short poem.

A Place of Wonder in a Vast World
by Shey Wicklund 02.17.13

outside, where no concrete walls surround us
where our roof is the infinite sky
changing hues of gray, blue, pink and yellow
shifting shapes of clouds rolling by

where the trees stretch, sway and dance
to winds blowing in all directions
where the birds chirp, sing freely
of recent rides on air currents, perchance

outside, whenever and wherever one is
there’s a place of wonder in a vast world
where petty things and thoughts are shed
forgive, hope, dream, find and share your bliss

  1. I posted some pictures of bare tree branches today, too. Your photos are stunning! Trees have such stories to tell, and that gorgeous sky is just amazing!

    Happy Tuesday. ☺
