Earlier this week, I snapped the photos shared here while on my way to work. Determined to craft a poem inspired by this light, this dawn, I did just that. For good or ill, I wrote a poem.

Image may contain: sky, cloud, twilight, outdoor and nature


When, as smoke, it drifts,
golden clouds above hills
painted with hues of shadow
and forgetfulness,
I, like the rabbit squat

in tall grass, coiled as a spring,
the chipmunk perched
on a soft stump,
incline my better senses
toward the air,

still cool with night,
and reach for God’s hand,
His finger touching earth
where earth flames with new light,
as He offers this mantle and core a spin.
