Your haiku and photo go hand in hand--nice job!

SKY-SEEKERS

The sky-seekers, some people say,
Do not favor night over day;
They always look up,
The sky is their cup,
And keeping it full’s their cachet!

Orange is my favorite color. I read somewhere it is the "new red". I'm seriously considering painting my dining room a subdued version of a not to vibrant orange...

Perhaps it's because I just read S.E. Hinton's "The Outsiders", but this picture is making me think of Robert Frost's "Nothing Gold Can Stay". Absolutely beautiful :-)
