Pink Clouds and Puddles

pink sky and puddles

One day last week

when it seemed to rain all day

the sky cleared up just enough

right before dusk

for Charlie and I to walk to the mailbox

at the end of the driveway

for a bit of a stretch

and the chance to deeply inhale

the damp, crisp, clean air.

When we turned around

to head back home

my jaw dropped open

and a gasp escaped

when this was the sight

that awaited our return.

Pink clouds and puddles

shimmering in the day’s last light.

No white Christmas,

but what is wrong with PINK?!

Cherish the moments of now.

Cheers & Hugs,

  1. This is GORGEOUS and one of those “picture is worth a thousand words” moments. I think you are a gifted photographer, and I really hope to see more of your photos in the coming year. They are exquisite. Charlie there in the foreground makes it even more perfect. Beautiful job, my friend! Happy Happy to you tomorrow! ❤

  2. Jodi, this photo is spectacular. As I look back on all the wonderful postings from the past year, I am amazed at all you have done and tried and excelled: photography, poetry, card-making, recipes, events, cookbooks, painting, etc. And I do mean etc. because the list goes on. I marvel at all you do, including a job, and wonder how you get it all done. You must have an inner drive that propels you to try, to dare, to think and imagine, and to succeed. You are truly a loving and caring person and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading “you” since day one. Bless you, Jodi, at the dawn of this new year 2016. I look forward to having you in my life, even at a cyber level. You are a teacher and an inspiration. xoxo
