I woke up without the alarm
and sat down at my computer in the study.
Outside my window,
everything had taken on a pinkish hue.
Even the grass looked different.
There, behind the barren trees
wide streaks of pink next to wide streaks of blue
laced their way across the morning sky.
Now and then as I’ve been writing,
dogs and their owners have walked past and gotten exercise
on the sidewalk below.
Morning has broken
and reminds me that -yay- here is another great day!
It is a precious gift
to be up this early and not miss out on the beauty
all around me.
