Prompt – Without the Clouds of Nine

Daily Post – Local Color/“Imagine we lived in a world that’s all of a sudden devoid of color, but where you’re given the option to have just one object keep its original hue. Which object (and which color) would that be?”

I can do without ever being on the clouds of nine. Why? Because the blue of the sky is one of my favorite colors and also a favored object. I am content gazing upward, focusing my thoughts on the Creator of this magnificent expanse. There is peace of heart and mind in the blue transparency of the sky.

“The heavens declare the glory of God…”

~ Psalm 19:1

  ********************
Here of a Sunday morning
My love and I would lie,
And see the coloured counties,
And hear the larks so high
About us in the sky.

Alfred Edward Housman, 1896

  1. Oh my goodness! I’m a little tingly that our paths have crossed!
    It’s a good thing I picked my favorite color before I saw your post…I love the blue sky, too…as well as the name of your blog 😉
    Beautiful photo and perfect words to accompany.
