Silent poetry [SWF]

@ mirandablue
I hope you're not getting tired of the views from my roof.  The rooftops and distant sky-scrappers are actually boring, but the sky has always something beautiful to offer.  Being on the roof at sunrise or sunset feels like sitting on the front-row seat to the greatest show on earth, and it's free.  From bold strokes of gold to splashes of purple and orange---this is silent poetry. 

@ mirandablue
At sunset
Nature is painting for us
Day after day...
Pictures of infinite beauty.

- John Ruskin

@ mirandablue
Peace...is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank.

That is both a poem and a novel, and i envy your location. I've also just transfered to the 5th floor but i only got the sunsets. Sometimes, they are really wonderful, but i usually miss them because i go home after 6pm. Your photos are so inspiring.

I love that last photo and the last line: "Peace...is seeing a sunset and knowing who to thank." That pretty much sums it all up.
Thank you for a beautiful post for SWF.

Ang ganda, ganda!! Tired of this...? SkyWatchers? Who are you kidding, Luna? :-D I don't know if you have to travel down from your hill to get to work, but this view would make the traffic nightmare almost worth it. I've noticed the sunsets, but have not had a good vantage to shoot them. Lucky you! And lucky us!!
