Waiting

Gun metal,
Silver,
Sodden
And Slate.
Words that describe our sky as I wait
For a day like this...

That the Magnificent Frigatebirds made even more so.
A day, like this one in Samana, Dominican Republic, when all was right with the world, and our cares and worries drifted away in a little yellow boat..


Today, I will take my place on the pelican perch, and wait 'til the weather takes a "tern" for the better.

See the world as others see it at  http://www.skyley.blogspot.com/

Great photos, the first one is a real hit and the third one unusual for me,never seen anything like that.

Nice intro poetry. I have only seen one of those birds and I was in awe at how large it was. Good photo.

Ohhhhhhh........I want to live where it's sunny and warm all the time. Where the birds go to play.......and the people do too. Lovely post--although you have triggered my winter longing for paradise a little early!!!! :-) Beautiful photos....
