poetry and prose about place

impressions of the day – early morning

with 6 comments

Every morning, after waking, I spend a little time in my guest room. I get myself ready for the day – doing a few stretches, looking from the window, greeting Zoë (our cat), planning my day.


Usually this happens just before sun-up and I am able to watch the sun rise behind the woods in our back yard.  I am always amazed at the shift in the location of sun rise, season to season. These November days, it is to the south of where it rose in early summer.


This morning the sunrise was brilliant, a fire of orange behind the trees. The flaming colours burst through small gaps in the darker trees – inspiration to get out my watercolours!
