The Sky

Since time immemorial the sky has been an inspiration to many-a-man who dreamt and wished they could fly and touch the sky. Impossible as it seems, the sky is boundless. It is an endless portal that leads to an infinite outer space.

Yes, the unreachable sky has envied man to be like the great eagles who can soar high above the clouds and enjoy the majestic view of the earth below. The mythical father and son team, Icarus and Daedelus fashioned wings to fly like a bird to reach the sky.

The dream to fly was realized when the Wright brothers invented the airplane. Astonishingly in less than a hundred years man set foot on the moon.

To poets and painters, the sky with all its colors and splendor gave birth to many literary works of art and paintings depicting the sky from their individual emotions and perceptions.

Just look at the rainbow and you will know what I mean.

Or, the beautiful sunset with all the hues of blue, orange, white and red.

At night, be awed by the countless glimmering stars looking down upon you.

And on a bright moonlit night one would always wonder when man would ever set foot on the moon again, viewing earth and all its beauty and splendor. The sky is a mystery that haunts man’s mind since he first walked the earth.

As long as the sky is way above us, man will aways wish he could touch the heavenly sky!
