The Joy in Haiku



Today I join Meri for Share the Joy Thursday.   For I believe we need to find it in my life every day no matter the realities in which we live.  God is Good in so many ways even in times of trial.

Joy comes in many forms.
And this day has the potential of
being just as grand as
celebrating the beauty in
the gifts from outer space.



must be open to it!

Ron has had a love a meteorites for many years.  This is one that was so ugly on the outside I just had to ask why?  He said because they come from places we have never been and to him they are exciting.  Well, some time ago to prove that there is beauty in these "space objects" he cut on in half.  And the picture above is what was revealed.  Real beauty in crystalline form.

Falling stars at night
Brightest shooting stars above
A heavenly sight

Microscopic Scrutiny




Ron took pictures of a few of his meteorite slices under a microscope. The color is not true. It is that steely color. Please enjoy!

The Meteorite Metamorphosis

Do you remember this picture, those "neolithic-looking" rocks, that I thought were so ugly,The Traveler is Home? Today Ron finished sanding some of his meteorite slices. He cleaned up one of the slices and then etched it. I hope you enjoy seeing the change and I hope I was able to capture the process adequately.



This is before...

The finished product. It is amazing to see how the beauty of this gift of the heavens emerges from the stone.
