For want of scarlet,
Sky Maiden dons grey instead—
still she is comely.

  1. …tis the season…grey. and all that it entails. thank goodness for pops of colors just when we need it. happy sss mmt!!

  2. Be the sky blue or gray, the trees aim toward heaven, growing as if each branch were an outstretched hand. Heavenly views in your part of the land…

  3. Yes, there’s always beauty in the skies — even gray ones, once we start looking. Great capture and matching words, as always, MMT! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  6. Moody and brooding, I like it!

  7. Nice shot, I like the silhouette of the trees against that grey sky. Let’s hope for lots of sunshine real soon.

  8. Wait! Is that rain off in the distance? Love the drama in the sky.

  17. Beautiful Sky Magical Mystical Teacher,
    Donned in Grey, the Clouds feel to be cradling the quietly slowly awakening Light of the Sun, while the Sentinels observe and await to feel the Sun’s Light and Warmth.
    Very calming, quietly patient scene.
    Appreciation from Magda and Family in Australia
