Skywatch Friday--Sunset

  











            

                

Softly enfolded
     Cradled like a well loved child
            Sun rests amid clouds


Another beautiful sunset

Such a gorgeous way to end the day, Mickie, and you've captured it beautifully. Love the colors and I always love the bare blackened trees silhouetted against the colorful skies! Breathtaking! Wishing you and your family a very happy weekend!

Who could ever turn away from such stunning sunsets?

THE CLOUD FIDDLER

Hey, diddle, diddle,
The clouds on my fiddle
Are making it hard to play!

Hey, diddle, diddle,
I need a new fiddle
With all the clouds whisked away!

Sharply silhouetted tall bare trees will be sunk in our memory soon... when spring comes. I love sunset scenes all the year round.
