Painting a picture with light. Fantastic Poet.

That's magical....it puts me in mind of that old song, "Heavenly shades of night are falling; it's twilight time". Beautiful, Poet.

“Had I the heaven’s embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver lights,
The blue and the dim and dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”

He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven.
W.B Yeats. 1865 - 1939

I love that poem, Veronica, and am always reciting it to myself. It fits the photograph perfectly.

As PAD 's have said, a beautiful scene, Birches are so graceful with their wispy branches that seem to float on the breeze. Nice pic Poet.

Watching eyes I beg don’t fail ,
when beauty ‘fore me speaks ,
let me fill my shallowness ,
to overflowing glass
When I’m drunk with beauties grace
upon the wind l’ll fly ,
made from wings , that I picked here ,
and left within this sky.

These sunsets are caused by desert dust from the Sahara

There is nothing quite like, watching the sun paint the sky. Shades of pink and purple, as it kisses the ocean goodnight. Beautiful poet.
