Artist's Description

July 20th, 2009 produced one heck of a mighty sunrise! As I traversed over a golf course and came closer to the rising sun, I was in awe of the incredible sky paintings that illuminated the ground I stood on! One of my favorite old Joni Mitchell songs, is “Circle Game.” It seems fitting for this picture. It’s my hope that you enjoy both the sunset and Joni!! This photograph was shot with a Canon 40D wide angle 75mm lens in West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA.

Circle Game – Joni Mitchell

Yesterday, a child came out to wander
Caught a dragonfly inside a jar
Fearful when the sky was full of thunder
And tearful at the falling of a star

And the seasons they go ‘round and ’round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Then, the child moved ten times ‘round the seasons
Skated over ten clear frozen streams
Words like, "When you’re older", must appease him
And promises of someday make his dreams

And the seasons they go ‘round and ’round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look behind
From where we came,
and go round and round and round
In the circle game

Sixteen springs and sixteen summers gone now
Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town
And they tell him, “Take your time. It won’t be long now.
’Til you drag your feet to slow the circles down”

And the seasons they go ‘round and ’round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

So the years spin by and now the boy is twenty
Though his dreams have lost some grandeur coming true
There’ll be new dreams, maybe better dreams and plenty
Before the last revolving year is through.

And the seasons they go ‘round and ’round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We’re captive on the carousel of time
We can’t return, we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and ’round and ’round
In the circle game
And go ’round and ’round and ’round in the circle game.
