A Watery Sun


SKYWATCH


A WATERY SUN

Not the sun after a shower, but sun and clouds immersed
In the waters of a placid lake, so everything's reversed.
Instead of looking upward, by tilting back my head
I just gazed at the ripples to see the sky instead.
The effect is almost dimpled; almost normal, but not quite,
And the sun is gleaming through the clouds with a vaguely dappled light.
Skywatch? No! It's Waterwatch! I've liquified the sky!
I've saved myself a neck-ache and still watched the clouds go by!

Here the sun plays often hide and seek. The weather is dry and autumnlike. We also need rain. I wish you enough rain to colour your world green, but also enough sunshine to feel happy!

Very wonderful lines so apt for the sky photo, albeit a reflection of the sky on the water with rippling effect.

Very nicely put together - what a great capture that was!

A well-captured reflection ... not easy to do. Has an element of the ethereal to it.

I love the watercolor look to the photo...a first I really thought it was a painting. Your written words are so well put.
