When the world lets you see its lovely face on a beautiful morning like this.

You are humbled, mesmerized, awed and dazzled.

When  the morning brings such beauty

before your eyes.

When the morning sun reflects its light

on these  lovely cotton candy clouds,

be thankful….it is enough!

Yesterday was another busy day for me –   doing  never-ending household chores, preparing meals for the day and tending my small garden. I had to trim the carabao grass because I could no longer  use the stepping-stones, they were almost covered with the fast-growing ground cover.  I think I sweated a pint (this is no exaggeration) when I finished trimming the front of the garden.  It was that kind of perfect weather, blue sky and a gentle breeze blowing softly  and the dogs were happy because they had company. Then I looked up and saw these clouds rolling by as if they were late for a rendezvous. I couldn’t run fast  enough to get my camera and take a few shots. See how quickly they move and change course.




I am a cloud-watcher. Since I was a child I have always been fascinated by clouds.  I could not count the times I took shots of clouds and blogged about them. Next to my macro photos on flowers, clouds are my favorite subject.

Rabindranath Tagore described clouds beautifully when he said  “Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

That moment when   the clouds hide  the sun’s brilliance but then you know that in a while, the dazzling light would show its face  and everything in your world would be right again. Life shadows are there to show us a promise of what is to come – maybe, something new to discover, to appreciate and admire.

I have always loved choosing a particular photo or several shots I took  through the years that would depict my interpretation of the Weekly Photo Challenge and I love what WordPress has come up with this week,  The World Through My Eyes. What a lovely subject to focus on. And I wish I could also try using more font choices here just to emphasize a post or make  the blog look great. I digress.


Next to my garden shots (flowers and blooms mostly), clouds are my favorite subject. I am in awe of seeing cloud formations and always  asks myself, “What secrets are you hiding? Are you happy just drifting and pouring  your heart as rain when things get so heavy?”

Life sometimes is  like a cloud. It is a never-ending process of discovery. There is always a bright  floss cotton candy  that you’ll see high above then all of a sudden, it changes its course and begins to darken.  I admire the way it floats, heading somewhere beyond,  then you get to ask again, “Is it also bright and sunny in your part of the world or are you enjoying the sudden summer rain drenching  your feet in puddles  and laughing your heart out like a child?”

Happiness sometimes is also fleeting, you shine one moment and cry the next. Then you’ll  see a lovely rainbow slowly breaking in the horizon, amidst clouds and sunshine.  And you hear the silence speaking to you softly whispering, God is near! And you smile because you are happy.

One of my favorite subjects in photography – clouds. I love the mystery they evoke, what could be hiding behind those thick formations up there? I love watching  them drift by. Then I remember a quote from Rabindranath Tagore, “Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”


And I  do remember taking this shot more than two years ago when my kids and I  went to the cemetery in our home province to visit Dad’s grave.  Another sunset scene when the heart is so vulnerable it breaks into silent tears of goodbye.

♫♪♫♪On a clear day

Rise and look around you

And you’ll see who you are

On a clear day

How it will astound you

That the glow of your being

Outshines every star

You’ll feel part of every mountain, sea and shore

You can hear

From far and near

A word you’ve never, never heard before…

And on a clear day…On a clear day…

You can see forever…

And ever…

And ever…

And ever more…♪♪♫♪

I think I am having  a LSS. That’s Capones Island located in San Antonio, Zambales. Someday, I would love to come back here and wait for the sunrise…maybe just greet the early morning with a smile.
