Pastel Angel Wings



Spun cotton candy scent from the local county fair,

Surely doesn’t capture senses as much as pastel skies.

Dreamy visions could be seen above heads of fellow fair goers,

Wondering if they saw butterfly wings, pretty clouds or too busy to notice?

About reocochran

I am experiencing crazy and hapless adventures in dating that may interest people over fifty. I am now approaching 62 later this year and enjoy taking photographs, incorporating stories or poetry on my blog. I have many old posts which are informative and written like essays. I have several love stories collected from family and friends. Even strangers spill their stories, since I am a grown version of the girl next door. I have been trying to live a healthy lifestyle with better food selections and active hiking and walking. I have written four children's books and illustrated them. They are not published but a battered women's shelter used one about neglect and abuse for their children's program and a 4H group used my "Kissing a Bunny is like saying a Prayer" as a coloring book. Please comment or respond so I may get a chance to know you. Sincerely, Robin

    • I like that you “see” the angel wings, Jen. ๐Ÿ™‚ So appropriate to mention not to forget to “Smell the roses!” ~*~
      Happy Sunday! Busy day- dropping something at son’s house, to hospital to visit an old friend and then Skyler’s football game about 40 minutes away.

      • I like the idea of angels best, Jen. But the butterfly or fairy wings are beautiful images, too.
        I can see why you see angels! โ™ก I saw a Sunday post, right when I aimed my cell phone camera at the shape of outspread wings in the gorgeous sky. Hard not to see a blessing or message of love up there.

    • Dan, this is good since I edited the people out of the photograph to emphasize the sky, then wondered about that choice. Glad you felt I did it “just right.” ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Oh, Montana has “endless, uninterrupted skies,” Anneli. Great mentioning of your awareness level increasing in such locations. I have recently enjoyed online captures of the awesome Northern Lights displays. Thanks for this valuable addition of Montana skies. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Dee, thank you. I think each one looks different which creates special thoughts. This makes me happy to hear you won’t tire of them. Many people are talented in photography and I admire their professional photos very much.

  1. Beautiful! One of the things I like about iPhones and blogging with photos is that I am reminded so often of how beautiful our world is. It keeps me focused on that.

    • I hope thongs are goung well with you abd your household. I am hoping you are happy with some things going well with “Doll God,” too. I need to check up your life though, Luanne. โ™ก (With husband’s unique eating challenges snd cats there could be something I need to know.) Take care and glad to hear my posts help you to notice things and be mindful of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I like how you felt about my post, looking up and also adding “looking out,” are both good things to remember to do, Pauline. We have to notice our neighbors and possibly strangers who may need some kindness.
      This may be a whole other day for you by the time my response reaches you. I was truly happy to bring you a smile with your morning coffee. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Jill, we like to nature watch, sky watch and sometimes observe people, too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the beautiful words. Hey, I watched my first Harvest film from Hallmark this year. There are I think 3 to 5 new ones. This was the typical city “girl” working on a farm who may or may not like the farmer “boy” next door. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Oh, Jill. I am proud of your priorities but did not realize a 2 hour “break” would cause such an upset in your editing schedule. I am glad you remind me of how much dedication you put into your book projects! I need a dose of reality from time to time. ๐Ÿ™‚ at least you will be able to watch them when finished. Wishing you a clear head and relaxed moments to refresh your brain. xo

    • I like how you added not to forget to look around at nature in all areas, Maniparna. Thanks for liking my sky photo, this meant a lot. You have a new phone and I an looking forward to your photos, too.

    • I am glad you liked the colors in this photograph, Jenny. I have been practicing with my cell phone. When I see how they come out it is hard not to keep them all. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope the school children, your students, behave themselves. You inspired me to go early to vote for our Nov. 3rd ballot. I will be at my mom’s from Oct. 30th till Nov. 8th.

    • Thank you for enjoying this pastel sky with several ways you may view it, Brenda. Michelle Marie snd I push like but not often stop to leave comments. She is beautiful inside and out. As are you, my dear friend. I got slightly caught up, your “Chill” could be Fall’s Frost. We need an animator to “discover you!” โ™กโ™ก
