Sunset behind the fog

sunset on the Pacific Ocean with stripes of clouds and fog at the horizon
Brushstrokes of clouds and a hotspot where the sun glided behind the fog

The fog at the horizon is ready to swarm ashore.
It tarries and I steal some time with the cloud-marbled sky.


after sunset on the Pacific Ocean with stripes of clouds and fog at the horizon
All that was white turned orange

The sun dips below the west with a fiery sigh.
The fog will soon erase colors and shapes.

But not yet.
Blue and orange still rule:
will only abdicate to the night.

The view from the pier

Pirates Point pier
looking ahead

Scattered clouds dot the pastel evening sky.
The sun’s last rays paint a light glimmer on the rippling sea.

looking behind

Behind me, I hear rumbling and see rain.

I choose to look at the sea.
The sky reassures me: “There is a way.”

Sea and sky

Little Cayman: the Sound
Blue and green reverberate inside me.

A slice of Little Cayman from a boat
I close my eyes and I think blue — sky blue and water blue.

Little Cayman seen from a boat
I open my eyes and I remember green.

I will hold this gift of colors close to my heart until I see you again, Little Cayman.

Amazing grays

The tale of the vanished horizon
The tale of the vanished horizon

In the morning, the sky melts into the ocean and the ocean vaporizes up to the sky.
The horizon has vanished.
A minimalist gray palette.

A break in the clouds
A break in the clouds

In the evening, a blade of pale blue brings back the boundary.
Sunlight floods the horizon.
A rich gray palette.
