License To Speed



The sky
is that beautiful old parchment
in which the sun and the moon
keep their diary.

~ Alfred Kreymborg, Old Manuscript






Taken from Champions Gate Boulevard, one romantic evening, when I was out with myself.

I loved the photo and the words.

Thanks for your comments on my poems in With Images.

I've noticed you know the Creoula. Is´n't it a lovely ship? I've visited it in Aveiro, more than once and I loved each visit.

That is truly a beautiful picture. I love it. On this romantic evening---where was the redhead? Or the gator? I did read romance in the gator's eye--just one, he seems to be considering other avenues. MB

Well Champ - what can I say - I LOVE this! The title caught my eye first - perfect. The poem - ooh, speaks to my heart.

Saw the fine print - you shouldn't have been alone! ;)

Glad to see you here in Skywatch!

I love taking the picture of sky, cloud. It's never be the same. This one looks so clean and fantastic day. Contrail shows another interest by drawing clean line of blush stroke.

Ida said...

Love it! :)
