Dawn’s blush

That first blush of dawn

Is a marvel of pink and purple and cold.

Pink trees

The hidden birdhouse

Enjoys wonderful views from its perch.

Birdhouse

As dawn’s blush fades

The crooked trees stand still –

And like me –

Enjoy the moment.

    These images are absolutely breathtaking. There is something about those late winter sunrises, as the light increases. I took some marvelous dawn pictures the other day as well, but my views these days are obstructed by houses and trees. At times I miss the stunning vistas from my white house.;)
    Have a great weekend,
