morning moon

There are those 
when necessity dictates
 the alarms be set
earlier than usual
as was the case with our
4:45 a.m.
wake-up call

During the coffee shift
I became enamored with the
setting moon in the
western sky

I want to learn how to
capture that orb
in an attempt to explain
why it woos me so

With the determination of one
who was denied her rightful sleep
I bundled-up for the single digit morning 
camera in hand
but alas
 this was the best
of the bunch
which is a far cry from 
the marvel
I was witness to.

And so I turned my attention
to the shifting light
gave way to 

As blues
gave way 

and thoughts of returning
to bed
gave way to
the promise
of a beautiful day

filled with snow
twinkling lights
and a second cup of 
cafe latte.

Hello, Monday!

  1. 4:45? Seriously? The photos are beautiful, so I guess it was worth it. Hey, is the truck up and running again? We need to catch up! Merry Merry Merry Christmas! ;)
