One Deep Breath - "Mystery" Yugen

"Yugen... describes a sense of mystery over the universe. [It] also deals with noticing the vastness of the universe in comparison to the minute nature of human existence...." -Kristin Boryca

Sky canvas, framed light
clouds swirl colors; day to night
portrait of brilliance

Dave took this off our back deck of our new home and even though all the pictures turned out too dark I managed to lighten this one.

This picture is so perfect I thought it was fake (computer generated)! Wow, what a view!

Indeed, a portrait of briiliance :-)

Yugen...what an interesting prompt. I watched a fantastic show on the science channel last night about Stephen Hawking and Black Holes, and how every particle in the universe is encoded and how the information there is retrieveable --every PARTICLE!-- so NO THING is ever truly lost. Hawking believed the opposite for 40 years, but changed his mind...I wrote a bunch of notes on the back of two envelopes (which I can't find, and I think my husband threw them away in a fit of housekeeping). Anyway, thanks for this!

This picture looks like a painting and your haiku describes it beautifully. Beautifully done as always. :)

Sky canvas, framed light...made me smile because of how well it works as a metaphor, because of the rhythm of the words and because it carried me with it...the first phrase opens up space and the second contains it. Thanks for sharing your beautiful view.
