    I’ve carried a picture of the sunrise IMG_4321
    in the pocket of my mind all day long —
    the memory of this March morning:
    the promising chill and the sunlight
    that snuck up like a stage whisper,
    reminding me of . . . autumn.
    I know, I know — spring is not
    yet fully alive or arrived, but
    take a look for yourself. See the
    long, luminous reaches of light —
    don’t they remind you of the
    golden October glows across our
    old brick buildings downtown;
    the world waking up or going
    to sleep looks much the same —
    good to know if you are facing
    east or west, whether to get ready
    for bed or a brand new day.

      Sunrise here is over tall pines and roofs. So, a bit later than yours. The sun shines a beacon through the dining room window….where I sit. You are reminding me to write every day. Thank you.
