Playing the blues

There’s nothing more delicious

Than the blue hour of morning,

Blue view

When clouds freckle the lake,

Boats float on blue silk,

Boats

And leaf-studded frost

Decorates the jetty.

    Don’t take this the wrong way, but! Am, we, are not use to ‘blue’ here. What happen, sleep in? I think its been almost a month since we’ve had any sign of a blue sky here where I wander about. So this is welcomed gift for my teetering mindset. Made even better by the quality of the photograph. You just don capture and post stinkers do you!
