We have lots of beautiful sunrises here. I could probably fill up all the white space on this screen with all the sunrises and sunsets I’ve taken photos of. Here’s just a few, along with a poem I wrote a long time ago, too.

There’s just something awesome to see how the sky presents so many pretty colors and formations with clouds. It’s like looking at a huge, glorious painting, every day renewed.

CONJURING THE WORDS

Topsy-turvy…upside-down…

Stand in the air…look up at the ground…

Forests, mountains, sand, and sea,

All I see is magic to me.

Stars, planets, sun, and moon…

Morning, evening, night, and noon…

Ever changing, dark to light,

I live in such a wondrous sight.

Up into the stratosphere,

It’s aura far, yet still so near.

Hard as ice, or soft summer breeze,

Give me more of all that, please.

I found the words inside my brain…

The horde in there, does cause such pain.

I conjure them up, to write them down…

Now, I can smile instead of frown.

Yes, you know not what I mean,

To live and breathe a waking dream.

So beautiful, it makes me cry…

My landscape is of course…the sky.

WEEKLY WEATHER – DUST STORM

Standard

WEEKLY WEATHER – DUST STORM weekly-weather

This week’s weather word prompt is Dust Storm.

The challenge information is available here:

Weekly Weather: Dust Storm

***

Living in west TX, we get lots of dust storms. They can happen any time, but mostly from January through March. These photos were taken out my back door during a couple. The first one was very strange. They said it was a haboob. It got really dark, and the sky was filled with red dirt for awhile. The other two was another sand/dust storm, but wasn’t that eerie red color. It gets so bad here at times, you can’t see good enough to drive down the highway, and there are accidents every time.

I’ve seen big walls of dirt rolling in, and that’s what they call them…walls of dirt. They can be seen for miles before they get to you, so you do have a little time to prepare, like closing windows, and tying things down outside so they don’t blow away.

The sand gets in the house through every little crack, even piling up in little drifts by the door and windows. Our eyes are gritty and it even gets in your mouth at times. The fact that there is so much dust in the air does make for some spectacular sunsets, and sunrises, too.
