Blue Skies

If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy,
If a blade of grass springing up in the fields has the power to move you,
If the simple things in nature have a message you understand,
Rejoice, for your soul is alive.
Eleanora Duse

People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or thin air, but to walk on Earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the curious eyes of a child--our own two eyes. All is a miracle.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Perfection! What wonderful words - and your beautiful photo fits both perfectly.

Life is indeed a miracle...especially when you can see it through the eyes of a small child!

Well done cbw. Love it!

Great Picture ..... I am reminded of a quote by Elizabeth Browning:

“Earth's crammed with heaven, And every common bush afire with God; But only he who sees, takes off his shoes - The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.”

Thanks for letting us see!
