Jule lifted his head to the night sky and closed his eyes.
The flutter of a black trench coat blended with the dark sky as Gabriel twisted them in midair, so he'd hit back first, with her protected in his arms.
Some things never changed, like the blue sky, the sun orb, the grass and oceans.
The sky was dark, the stars plentiful and bright.
The distant sky showed signs of growing lighter.
Shouldn't you be floating in the sky somewhere? she asked skeptically.
How was it I did not see that lofty sky before?
As soon as the sun appeared in a clear strip of sky beneath the clouds, the wind fell, as if it dared not spoil the beauty of the summer morning after the storm; drops still continued to fall, but vertically now, and all was still.
Dusty glanced up at the sky, where the clouds had gone from black to slate.

From the day when Pierre, after leaving the Rostovs' with Natasha's grateful look fresh in his mind, had gazed at the comet that seemed to be fixed in the sky and felt that something new was appearing on his own horizon--from that day the problem of the vanity and uselessness of all earthly things, that had incessantly tormented him, no longer presented itself.
The stars, as if knowing that no one was looking at them, began to disport themselves in the dark sky: now flaring up, now vanishing, now trembling, they were busy whispering something gladsome and mysterious to one another.
The still air became more charged the closer they got to the center of the storm, the sky darker.
I knew the sky was black, because all the heat, which meant light to me, had died out of the atmosphere.
One source of energy was darker than a stormy sky while another was as bright as the sun.
The next eruption, and the one after it, gave insufficient light to help, but then a multiple display hung in the sky like a full moon, giving time for his eyes to search left and right.
It was nighttime on this side of the world, and the sky was clear.

She saw his large frame against the night sky outside the small cave, human one moment, then decidedly not the next.
I may be either the driftwood in the stream, or Indra in the sky looking down on it.
Daniel himself felt this, and as usual stood just inside the door, trying to speak softly and not move, for fear of breaking something in the master's apartment, and he hastened to say all that was necessary so as to get from under that ceiling, out into the open under the sky once more.
Sometimes it looked as if the clouds were passing, and a clear black sky appeared.
The frozen sea beneath her feet was the color of tar, the black clouds above paused mid-swirl around a pop of blue sky in the storm's center.
His body shook, and he flung his head back to the sky with a hoarse shout.
Skidding, half on his feet, half on his seat, he had negotiated a hundred yards further when a glowing flash brightened the sky to the north.
It was bedtime on her side of the world, but dawn was breaking the sky outside her windows.
She walked slowly, taking in everything from the patches of blue sky visible through the trees to the spring flowers sprinkling the forest floor.
The sky was given the status of something pure and clean, the earth sort of a dirty wasteland, and anything below water level or the ground considered Hellish.

The sun crossed the sky, and an hour before it would set, he returned.
Gabriel crossed to the window and stared at where the dark ocean and night sky met in the distance.
The sky had grown darker again and the wind made queer sobbing sounds as it swept over the valley.

She asks many questions about the sky, day and night, the ocean and mountains.
When my hoe tinkled against the stones, that music echoed to the woods and the sky, and was an accompaniment to my labor which yielded an instant and immeasurable crop.
Or sometimes I watched a pair of hen-hawks circling high in the sky, alternately soaring and descending, approaching, and leaving one another, as if they were the embodiment of my own thoughts.
This was one of the great days; though the sky had from my clearing only the same everlastingly great look that it wears daily, and I saw no difference in it.
It is a vitreous greenish blue, as I remember it, like those patches of the winter sky seen through cloud vistas in the west before sundown.
There were stars in the sky and the new moon shone out amid the smoke that screened it.

She wanted to know if men were shooting in the sky when she felt the thunder, and if the trees and flowers drank all the rain.

Such an eye was not born when the bird was, but is coeval with the sky it reflects.
Though the sky was by this time overcast, the pond was so smooth that I could see where he broke the surface when I did not hear him.
A blue-robed man, whose fittest roof is the overarching sky which reflects his serenity.
We waded so gently and reverently, or we pulled together so smoothly, that the fishes of thought were not scared from the stream, nor feared any angler on the bank, but came and went grandly, like the clouds which float through the western sky, and the mother-o'-pearl flocks which sometimes form and dissolve there.
The tenant of the air, it seemed related to the earth but by an egg hatched some time in the crevice of a crag;--or was its native nest made in the angle of a cloud, woven of the rainbow's trimmings and the sunset sky, and lined with some soft midsummer haze caught up from earth?

On the fifteenth, when young Rostov, in his dressing gown, looked out of the window, he saw it was an unsurpassable morning for hunting: it was as if the sky were melting and sinking to the earth without any wind.

To the right and high up in the sky was the sickle of the waning moon and opposite to it hung that bright comet which was connected in Pierre's heart with his love.
Gazing at the high starry sky, at the moon, at the comet, and at the glow from the fire, Pierre experienced a joyful emotion.
He had felt it for the first time when the shell spun like a top before him, and he looked at the fallow field, the bushes, and the sky, and knew that he was face to face with death.
Pierre glanced up at the sky and the twinkling stars in its faraway depths.
The sky and the horizon were both the color of muddy water.

He looked and recognizing in her both the old and the new Sonya, and being reminded by the smell of burnt cork of the sensation of her kiss, inhaled the frosty air with a full breast and, looking at the ground flying beneath him and at the sparkling sky, felt himself again in fairyland.
