TAKE A WORD - CELESTIAL


This week Deann has chosen CELESTIAL as our word for inspiration at Take A Word and that reminded me of just some of the strange things you might see if you gaze at the stars.  Last night as I gazed into a cloudy August Yorkshire sky searching for the music of the spheres and the annual meteor shower,  I saw instead a strange man on a bicycle riding along a cobbled road; a tall elegant flying machine, a rusty old Mother ship and a host of Chinese fire lanterns ..... and soap bubbles!

My goodness! I'm going to have to go out, lie down, and have a long look at the Indiana August skies. I don't know if I could find all these wonders or not! Superb fun, Ann. Creative and artistic. 5-Stars from me!

Of COURSE there were "soap bubbles"!!! What summer sky is complete without them!?!?! Another wonderful interpretation, Ann! Hugs, Terri xoxo

you should take more water with it, Ann, but then you wouldn't see all these things that inspire your incredible art, take a bow!
WHEN i looked up into the Mangaroa skies last night (during a power cut!) I saw white things floating down onto a carpet of snow that is still there at 2.30pm and its snowing again, first time for decades!!

Clearly, a very exciting Yorkshire sky! Looking up in London it is very hard to see anything as there are so many lights. It's wonderful!
