Beseeching Monkey

A  L  O  H  A !
Thunder Bird on Glory Wings

“ If you were 
born without wings, 
do nothing 
to prevent them 
from growing. ” 
                 Coco Chanel

Of all the dramas
in the sunset sky
is any as pitiable
as the 
Beseeching Monkey?

His love is riding 
the Winged Horse!
Already too far
Away! ALAS!

Nor noble ships
of the navy bold
can rescue his darling
from oceans
of gold-
[Here the Carl Vincent]

“ Run my dear,
From anything
That may not strengthen
Your precious 
budding wings. ” 

Thank YOU
for flying by!
          Fondly, cloudia

Pathos in the sky...
And how I would love to fly. To swoop, to glide, to soar.

Cloudia, those were terrific cloud shots and imagination in them. The aircraft carrier is looking good too!

First time here .... Wonderful captures of different skies. And especially I like the aphorismen ....

From banana blossoms to the Monkey King riding the clouds, one would think you're living in the Chinese novel Journey to the West!! All kinds of magical critters and amazing sights in that book. Kind of like your blog. This was an amazing post.
