SkyWatch#5 & HF#60 - Remembering ...

My first Sky Watch is at Small Reflections.Thanks to Scylla at Law & Motherhood for this cool Haiku button

As we waited for
others to return and board
the return shuttle

from St. John's island
in the Caribbean ... I
focused on the sky

with my camera
and captured this bird in flight ...
soaring through the skies.

Watching this morning
takes me back ... remembering
Caribbean Cruise.

I love your thought for today. (The Haiku is nice, too.) I always enjoyed grammar in school so this is right up my alley.

It's a moment of being "one" with the world and all that's on it...beautiful!

To all – Thanks to all of you for visiting my ‘soaring bird video’ at Sacred Ruminations for this week’s combined SkyWatch & Haiku Friday. I appreciate all of your comments and am delighted to have the distinction (according to Klaus) that mine was the first ‘video’ Sky Watch ever. How ‘kewl’ is that!!! I love seeing ‘sky views’ from all over the world each week (without having to leave home) and always learn something new as I make my rounds to as many participants as time permits. I hope you’ll return and I look forward to future visits to your sites as well.
Hugs and blessings,

What an excellent capture of Skywatch Friday! Beautiful!

ps I fixed mine. I wasn't able to get back. It was a hectic weekend. I will be sure to at least pop in for a second the next day no matter what is going on.

storyteller said...

Tina – I’m delighted you got a chance to see and enjoy it. I’ll drop by yours in a little while (after I walk Molly) and return to the computer. Isn’t it frustrating when our ‘virtual’ and real lives conflict? LOL All’s well that ends well.
Hugs and blessings,
