I have to give credit to my sister for all these photos. She's got a talent for photography and has enjoyed it for years. We loved living above the city with mountain views directly West and North and the plains to the East. The following pictures she took from our deck at night as we watched a magnificent lightning storm out on the Eastern plains.
Dream Awake (by me)
I wish to sit a moment and take in the quiet still of the day
For too soon it will take its slumber and slowly drift away
Whilst still here I will reach for the day soon gone by
And as the light does begin to drift, so to shall I
Dream awake about a place of tranquil respite found
An abode within my mind I have created in abound
I close my eyes for moments and often want for more
To ponder myself upon the things I question of my lore
Somewhere there is harmony between life and ones dreams
One must pause to remember though time not ample it seems
So my mind still drifting as descending is the time
Wonder now, is time not itself to be considered as sublime?
