Life is a Painting

Clouds and Light


Life is a painting
Each brushstroke a story lived by
Like clouds passing
On an infinite blue sky

Sometimes a story cracks open
Letting the light shine through
Touching a deeper sense
Of what we know to be true

Without the changing clouds
The painting would be less
The myriad colours of life
Our egress

    “Touching a deeper sense”: wonderful line in a wonderful post! I love the first stanza, and of course the photo! Thank you Hanne!


  3. You have captured a ray in a word…


    • Leslie that’s a truly poetic and beautiful comment, couldn’t ask for more than ‘capturing a ray in a word’. Wow, I wonder if that may lead to more writing…. Thank you much!


  4. Beautiful wisdom in the cracks of clouds πŸ™‚


    • Seonaid, thank you so much. The photo really spoke to me, but like sound travels slower than light, the same counts for my words, I’m more than happy though that they decided to find their way. It’s been a while… πŸ™‚

  11. Hugely dramatic. This has an intriguing mix of foreboding clouds and tranquil, heavenly light.


    • Mike, thank you so much for taking your time to leave this comment. The words you chose is exactly what I aimed at, often is, to capture a paradox. I’m happy it transpired.
      Also deeply thank you for your other likes and the follow.


      • My pleasure, Hanne. I enjoyed visiting your site and I look forward to seeing further posts. Thank you so much for your extensive visit to my ‘place’ – it’s always very heartening when someone like yourself decides to scratch deeper beneath the surface.


        • It was a pleasure visiting. Would be visiting much more if summer wasn’t so full on, as can be seen on my far and between posts… come winter and I’ll scratch deeper again πŸ™‚
