the sun rises up and over the ridge behind us
and reflects on another ridge in front of us.
add foliage and low slung clouds.
it only lasted a few minutes
and so i do not regret hopping out of bed,
pulling on my gardening boots
and running outside in my nightgown
to get this picture.
i am glad no one drove by on the road
at that very minute.
every day is filled with these moments of rapture.
i wonder...how often do we see them?
