August evening

Tonight there was a single cloud overhead that captured the breathtaking radiance of a summer sunset. 

Isolated in this way, the single cloud accentuated the beauty of the evening. I thought of that tried-and-true phrase about not seeing the forest for the trees, and realized there are times that a single tree can help one appreciate and even "see" a forest. If there had been many clouds tonight, I might have taken them for granted.
