My Witness Is The Empty Sky ...

“My witness is the empty sky …”
            ~ Jack Kerouac
             ~ 1922-1969

The words of Jack Kerouac soar in this image of a bright hot air balloon gliding with its passengers in a cloudless, cerulean blue September sky.

I captured this sight as I stepped out my front door on a warm, waning summer evening – it’s not a scene that floats over your doorstep every day!

It's Only A Paper Moon?...

"It is only a paper moon ...
It is only a canvas sky ...
But it wouldn't be make-believe if
You believe in me."

                           ~ "It's Only A Paper Moon"
                                      ~ written by Harold Arlen
                                          lyrics by E.Y. Harburg & Billy Rose

 The supermoon of August 10, 2014 - 
the largest full moon of the year -
rises in beauty at Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Glittering ...

 "All that glitters is gold."

All that glitters is gold in the night sky during the
2014 Fourth of July fireworks set off from
J. Birney Crum Stadium, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
Ah, to have fireworks every day!

By The Master's Brush ...

"If I can put one touch of rosy sunset
into the life of any man or woman, 
I shall feel that 
I have worked with God."
                ~ G.K. Chesterton
                                   ~ 1874-1936

God gives a master class in
painting the sky with this
summer sunset in June
at Trexler Memorial Park,
Allentown, Pennsylvania.

Crimson Sunset ...

"Softly drops the crimson sun:
Softly down from overhead,
Drop the bell-notes, one by one,
Melting in the melting red ..."
                                 ~ Susan Coolidge

All That Heaven Allows ...

"Sunsets are so beautiful that they almost seem as if we were
looking through the gates of heaven." ~ John Lubbock

The gorgeous sky just before sunset last night at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, PA reminded me of the title of the 1955 movie, "All That Heaven Allows."

Painter's Brush

"Painting is the silence of thought and the music of light."
                                                     ~ Orhan Pamuk

It seems as if a painter's brush swept across the sky
 to create tonight's sunset at Trexler Memorial Park, Allentown, Pennsylvania.
