Subset of Morning 4


    deep gray clouds huddle low on the ridge
    darkling mist clings to the treetops
    tarnished silver morning

    extravagant yellow dawn pours across the cove
    spilling rich sunlight onto the water
    golden coin morning

    cold rain lashes the bare shivering trees
    tiny rivulets run across the gray bark
    deep pewter morning

    deep orange sun forms on the hot horizon
    casting the molten clouds
    bronzed statue morning

    pale blue sky filled with bright clear sun
    and slender crescent moon
    sterling silver morning

    navy blue sky slams against the dark ridge
    sledged with hard thunder and strong lightning
    cold steel morning

sunday morning moments

sunday morning reflections 2014

wavering reflection/ dawns light on the water/ prayers of thanksgiving

sound of trumpets/ wild geese overhead /processional hymn

echoing across the cove/ tiny wrens warbling song/ call to worship

frothy white pear blossoms/ peek out from the woods/ little girls in church

small brown chipmunk/ perched on the gray stone wall/ morning meditations

small fishing boats/ bobbing in the morning cove/ gestures of faith

across the warming meadow/ cacophony of birdsong/ sunday morning choir practice

morning wakes/ shrouded in gray mist/ prayers of intercession

quiet murmuring/ pale gray doves in the cedars/ lenten prayers

from the cedar tops/ blue jays call/ shouts of acclamation

cold wind ruffles the morning cove/ sound of waves against the rocky shore/ prayers of the penitent

from the cold winter garden/ bright golden trumpets of daffodils/ intrusion of grace

*** This is the scene that greeted me this morning as I was filling the birdfeeders – such a glorious sky and reflections – hope you have a beautiful day

red haired dawn

Late winter morning 2-2014
leaping over the ridge
dawn’s red haired wildness
skips across the cove
with tawny paws

*** I was thrilled this morning to see a red fox loping across the meadow. He was a gorgeous color with his foxy face and bushy tail. We have seen tracks and evidence of his hunt, but this was our first sighting. A joy to see!
