Living in Karachi is fast-paced, you don’t really think and look at the sky enough. Lucky for you, we have a few breath-taking shots of the times Karachi skies were canvases painted by God.

6. When only Velimir Khlebnikov’s words could explain how this view felt:

‘A sea of heaven love has capsized
Someone’s sail in the round-blue water,
But the first storm is hopeless and gone
And from now on the journey is spring.’

Even in rage the sky is a masterpiece on its own.

13. When this view reminded you of that ex you never had

‘And in the trembling blue-green of the sky
A moon, worn as if it had been a shell
Washed by time’s waters as they rose and fell
About the stars and broke in days and years.’ –Yeats
