Today’s Daily Create— to write an “I was Today Years Old When…” and I remembered a time about two weeks ago on one of our weekend drives that I had blurted out one of those.
Driving along Banks Lake on a calm and sunny day with only a few cumulous clouds floating, the lake was like glass and totally blue with dots of white clouds like the picture above. And then I remembered and blurted out, “I am 72 years old and just remembering that the rivers and lakes are blue because they reflect the sky above them.” Duh.
So that, of course, became my Daily Create and my poem for the day. I imagined the earth spinning on it’s axis in space, orbiting the sun shining always upon it, and wrapped in rivers reflecting the wonder of the blue sky, the heavens, above them.
At first, I added the poem to the same picture above, but I knew I’d have a picture of a river. And I found a river and some art based on it:

So I searched through my photos and wrote today’s haiku on the Planet Blue:

heavenly skies found mirrored
in ribbons ‘round it.
