Sky & Clouds ~ A Love Story


I have forever been in love with the sky & clouds…their many, ever-changing hues & moods… 

How they play ‘the artist’ & ‘muse’ for each other…how each of them is a canvas for the other…

Sometimes, the clouds are rendering THE most beautiful spectacle on an empty blue sky & sometimes the sky acts a canvas for the most vibrant play of colours 🙂 ❤

They have a beautiful chemistry…a camaraderie…a love affair that results in the most spectacular natural display…

Whether it is a sunrise, a sunset, a raging storm, or a blazing summer sky… whether it is a glistening monsoon evening…or a warm winter afternoon… Their love story is to behold…Always.

Owing to a gorgeous weather due to a lovely summer shower in my part of the world, this post is my tribute to this majestic natural phenomenon, the inspiration for numerous poets, writers and musicians…the most passionate love affair since time unknown… I present to you few of my encounters with Sky & Clouds 🙂 ❤

Curtain round the vault of heaven.”
