Day's Haze

A  L  O  H  A !
Dawn, N. Calif
"Yellow, mellow, ripened days, 
Sheltered in a golden coating; 
O'er the dreamy, listless haze, 
White and dainty 
cloudlets floating. . ."
            Will Carleton

"Poetry is the 
mother-tongue of 
the human race."
         Johann Georg Hamann

"Than smoke and mist 
who better could appraise
The kindred spirit 
of an inner haze?"
            Robert Frost

"The farther reason looks 
the greater is the haze 
in which it loses itself."
             Johann Georg Hamann

I confess to cultivating
a haze. . .

Thank YOU
            Warmly, cloudia

What an incroyable sunrise Cloudia, wonder if the 'red sky in the morning sailors warning' applied that day :)

Gorgeous glow of light in the first photo. And love the sense of mystery cast by the shadows of the flowers in the vase.
