In the Early Morning

20160628_203527

In the early morning when it rains,

our spirits stir, our bodies shift,

rolling over in our beds

pulling up the blankets

to our chins,

dreaming

of holding each other

in the quiet.

As the Sun Rises

Home 2014 239

As the sun rises I will be ready

huddled in layers armed with a camera

waiting for, expecting the glistening, the sparkling

as glimpses of shadows hover, then dissipate

the brilliance of the snow, never doubting

we would live to see another day.

It is magnificent.

Early Morning Dunes

Old Photos 127

Seagulls barely awake,

and you call to me,

we dress quietly,

and slip out the door,

too late for the sunrise,

not too late for solitude.

Our two souls on the beach,

absorbing, the energy,

of the moment,

like the first humans,

meditating, on the power,

of waves,

grateful, to be here,

two together,

as we embrace,

in the early morning dunes.

The Promise

Old Photos 135

The sky shifted,

and moved out of place,

breaking open – was this the end?

His glory beginning,

Was time ending?

as the sun parted the shadows,

bursting light, spread over the sky,

and I realized it was a taste,

to let us know He was there,

just a small amount,

of heaven shining through.

There is love and mercy,

in a sunrise,

the promise,

of a new day, of life,

being renewed.

 

 

 

Blessings to everyone and peace!

When the Morning Comes

sunrise with blue

When the morning comes,

drawing you close in a warm embrace,

you stir and awaken, a stretch,

I’m grateful, for another smile,

not noticing our bad breath,

our eyes are gleaming now,

pools of eternity,

realizing, we’ve been given the gift,

of another day, with each other,

another chance,

more time,

holding, strengthening,

each other, with love,

healing,

encouraging each other,

without words, sometimes,

and another day,

of rejoicing in the sun,

if there is rain,

then we will still rejoice.

And when we are strong,

together,

we can face the day,

with His help,

love as our shield,

 walking with flowers in our minds,

learning more of what love is,

and giving of ourselves,

first to each other,

then giving,

to make this world a better place,

filled with,

strong love.

A lot can happen,

when the morning comes.

 Blessings to everyone and PEACE!

Sunrise

sunrise on the lake

I’m not a photographer,

but there is something special,

about the creation waking up,

people coming alive,

I will never forget,

my children being born,

my love coming down the aisle,

the day He made me new,

how He taught me,

to love instead of judge,

respecting others,

rays of light being born,

in me.

I love a sunrise,

may there be many,

many more.

Blessings to everyone and PEACE!
