December Inspirations-California Skies

Click to embiggen for better viewing
13 views of my
Southern California
skies here near the beach

sunny every day
we've all got our fingers crossed
hoping for some rain

and for others participating in Thursday Thirteen
Haiku Friday and Sky Watch
Blue Monday
Mosaic Monday

Addendum 6:33am Monday Morning
Delightfully, a
misty rain is drizzily
falling in a mist

just the kind of rain
Southern California
desperately needs ...

May it continue
steadily at this slow pace
to avoid flooding

while soaking the ground
raising water tables in
gradual manner

I love this... all of the pictures are beautiful. Like the quote, too. Seeing with the heart is very important. I like to see people with their potential. Sometimes that's the only way to see them. ;-)

Beautiful sky pictures, my favorite is the close up of palms with pretty sky behind. I hope your area gets the rain it needs.

A really lovely sentiment, and I love today's collage, too.

(Sorry for the lateness of the visit - I just spent the past two days preparing for the opening my new etsy store - my head is still spinning!)

Julia Phillips Smith said...

The sunny places pray for rain, and the foggy, rainy places like my neck of the woods pray for sun. LOL!

Carletta said...

I hope you get some rain but for now your skies are so crisp and blue compared to our cloudy gray ones.
Lovely images!
I love the quote on the first one.
Have a great weekend!

Palm trees reach skyward,
hoping to catch wayward clouds
before they vanish.
