Clouds - What do you see?
There are times when “looking
up” rivals the beauty of “looking down” while walking the
garden paths here on the shores of Lake Michigan in the Gardens at Waters East.The forms, textures, colors, moods of the many and varied clouds moving
overhead creates a beauty that for the most part only last moments – then
changes – then vanishes – then becomes new again.
Remember as a child lying down on
the soft grass and looking up at all those clouds passing overhead?Your mind was young and free and full of creativity.It was so easy to imagine that the clouds
were shaped like animals, birds or even looked like people you knew.The clouds stimulated creativity,
imagination, even dreams.
Well the clouds are still here,
though different than all those from years ago.They can and will make your mind dream and wonder like a
child once again – just look up.So many moods, so many forms, so much to see.
Here are two dozen photos taken
over the year of the clouds floating above the gardens.
Dream on – enjoy.
