December 12 Haiku

horizon

clouds at dawn;
lid of the world let
light slide in

I have been struck lately with the dazzling beauty of the sky every morning and evening as I make my commute. Today I had to pull over and take some pictures.

The clouds hold in the light, reflect the light, offer us moisture, cover us from the rest of the universe, give us a down quilt of color or obscure the brightness of creation. I have a sense of the sky as upturned bowl today, filled with swirls of light and delight, poured out on our heads.

The haiku prompt for this week at One Deep Breathe is containers. Look here for more haiku on all things held, poured or contained.

Lovely image and feeling. I'm put in mind of Mother Earth protecting us, allowing in what is appropriate and nourishing. :-)

Yes, this is a nice way to address the prompt and to honor mother nature and the awakening day!
