simply west

the direction to drive as the sun set
clouds cover the sky dancing with trees
drenched in shadows and light

west...a simple canvas for
soft wind . humming tires . dreams of arrival home . sky colors .
telephone wires . bare branches . trucks . motion . life . contentment
along a road lined with red and white lights ahead like stars along the way
my friend who lives west of me and a bit north embraces simple today will you?

Clouds cover the sky dancing with trees ~ I enjoy this, too! It usually means that change is coming, and they sing a song to embrace it!

I always wish I had my camera and an ocean at times like these, but these remind me how we can see beauty in the ordinary landscapes.

ahh, to drive the direction west, a canvas of our journey Home. This makes my heart smile.

Meri said...

Your last several posts have been as refreshing as water in the Egyptian heat. The west: a place of death, letting go of what no longer serves us, so that we can be made new.

Oh, this makes me think of a Kevin Welch song - "She's on any old two-lane, west bound she knows; she was chasing her shadow when the sun finally rose . . ."

Love this.

Dreams of arrival home...the best part of the commute sometimes. Great photos!

maccandace said...

I love the yellow in the sky in #2 and #5 and wonder if you removed the phone lines yourself from #3 as the clouds look exactly the same as in #2. And I love the red and white lights because heading home is the best part of the day.

Oliag said...

Joan Elizabeth said...

Where I live the west is hidden behind trees so I rarely notice the sun set ... a shame, because as you have shown it is such a wonderful display.
