Sky watch friday (9) 30 January!

I love walking through the rice fields. I am overwhelmed by the different green tones and the smell. The photos were taken in Lombok, I hope you like them…

Then the weather changed fast:

Well, today is my birthday and I want to post a poem along with my photos…maybe because I feel like being extra sensitive today…I think I will look for puppies to huge all the day long! ha ha ha:

Heavenly Grass

My feet took a walk in heavenly grass.
All day while the sky shone clear as glass.
My feet took a walk in heavenly grass,
All night while the lonesome stars rolled past.
Then my feet come down to walk on earth,
And my mother cried when she give me birth.
Now my feet walk far and my feet walk fast,
But they still got an itch for heavenly grass.
But they still got an itch for heavenly grass.

- Tennessee Williams -

Great paddy field landscape.
This remind me of my 'kampung' in the 60ies, where I used to work and planted paddy the traditional way.
Happy birthday!

Teri C dijo...

This is a wonderful landscape with beautiful greens and wonderful blues. Even the changed sky is beautiful.

That's all the better I can sing. I hope your birthday was nice, Happy Birthday Patricia!

Yes, your sky surely did change a lot. A spell of bad weather was coming.

I peeked earlier, I could have sworn that you had talked about snow on Mt. Mauna Kea. I know there was snow there last January 30th also.
Did I tell you that when we were staying at Mauna Kea State Park I ran for two or three miles each day along the highway along the foothills. We were having a youth camp for the Baptist children on the Big Island.

Happy SkyWatching too! I am finally up over at the 'Little Photo and Poem Place.' Come and see my beach scene.

P-TER dijo...

Your pictures are amazing,
with te clouds!

Reader Wil dijo...

Happy birthday Patricia! You are the second blogger who is having her birthday. Middle Ditch is the other blogger. I wish you a very happy "New Year"of your life! And many happy years to follow.
The ricefields remind me of those in Java, where I lived as a child. I never walked near the sawahs, though. Beautiful photos.The poem is very beautiful and matches the photos.

bowledover dijo...

Happy Birthday to you and many more to come.Lovely poem.
The colour of the rice paddy is wonderful so lush.
Your troubled sky which decended so quickly is very atmostpheric, I hope it travelled away as quickly, without any damage.
Thank you for your visit and kind comments.
You have a wonderful country.

Mamapippa dijo...

I like them very much !

Gattina dijo...

A very happy birthday to you !
I have never seen real rice fields (not yet, lol )

Esther dijo...

¡Feliz cumple atrasadito!

Me parecen unas fotos preciosas e increíbles, como todas las que pones por aquí. Y el olor a hierba fresca ¡uff! eso es delicioso. A mí me gusta sentir la hierba sobre los pies descalzos, rozar mis pies contra la hierba.

Bonito poema.

P.D: no pasa nada, lo dije, no sé por qué pero ¡¡¡muchas gracias! No sé vasco, sé alguna palabra. Eso es más difícil ¡Je,je!
