Weekend Snapshot: A Good Morning

IMG 6684


The birds pick up where the alarm leaves off on the weekends. Sometimes I wish they wouldn't, but then again, they get me up and out to see the soft beauty of early light. It's worth it, ultimately. The days are cool and brisk yet, and I like them. As I walk quickly to stay warm, I realize it's no mystery why people from these parts are always in a hurry. It's a survival skill.

In other news, ths evening the sun slipped into the river and night came to her rescue. They slept well.

  6. These are both such beautiful shots and I love the way you weave a mood with your words. Very eloquent.

    I have gotten pretty good at going back to sleep in spite of the birds loud songs but when the woodpeckers start banging on the metal vent in the roof, that's all she wrote.

  8. Your photo has beautiful colors and reflections but it was this that touched my heart:

    "ths evening the sun slipped into the river and night came to her rescue. They slept well."

    Makes me want to work more on my poetry blog. I probably would write several times a week IF I could get the photos that accompany my poems to upload. sigh

  9. I am not sure what i like better: your poems/posts or your pictures, so after i debated this awhile i decided that I love them both equally and I am so happy that you share them with us.

  10. Good thing the river and the sun are such good friends. Makes the sleeping together easier.

  11. "always in a hurry" i certainly was in England. the low temp both scared (once i stood shivering outside a hotel entrance trying to remember the password) and taught me some culture of cold countries.

    it's always a treat to read your posts.

  22. Great pics, and the words are excellent. I love the bird call in the morning.

  23. Those are beautiful photos. I used to wake up to the beautiful chirping of birds. Since it's my son's summer vacation, I tend to sleep late and wake up late in the morning. So it's been a while since I've heard the birds singing in the morning.

  30. What a way to document nightfall, "the sun slipped into the river". Wow. Even without the stunning photo, that's a picture.

  31. The buildings (Tues.) are stately, but the water continues to draw me. Maybe because our lake is still frozen...and it is still snowing and blowing.
