Ice Sky

I have a bit of a problem doing the stretchy exercises here on the boat as I don’t have a flat wall, and with my arms above my head, well, the roof gets in the way.
However, I have been able to improvise in the ladies loo as there’s a nice bit of partitioning that is just the right height for me to stretch to and hold, then for the pushing elbows back I can stand with my back to said partition and push backwards to touch it.
So far, no-one has come in whilst I’m puffing my way up the wall sotospeak.
However, this post is not about exercise!

I didn’t have my camera when I went up to do my exercises and dispose of the rubbish this afternoon, but if I had, hopefully I would have been able to capture the pure beauty of an ice blue sky reflected on ice blue water on the river.
Skies and their various hues fascinate me.
Sunsets and Dawns inspire me to write and the clearness of the sky today was no exception.

This Getty Image is pretty close to the effect, but totally different to the landscape here.


A vision of blue,
Cool, distant, yet welcoming
As the day winds down
And the sky meets the water.

Nothing moves,
All is quiet and still, remembering
The light of dawn
Fading towards sunset.

No clouds to hinder
Or detract from this simple beauty,
Clear, crisp and clean
I feel no chill on the air.

No sun to be seen
Yet it’s light and no shadows
Mask the horizon or distort
Craft as they sway on the current.

Soon it will be gone,
This magical moment of bliss and solitude,
A once in a lifetime visual
That I was unable to capture and share.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
