Be joyful even though you have considered all the facts...practice resurrection. -Wendell Berry

at sunrise

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 often do we see them?


  1. I love moments like this...and truly understand why you are still in Vermont enjoying them. thanks for sharing such a glorious sight! xo, tqoe

  2. Really gorgeous pictures. How happy you must have been to jump out of your bed to see this.

  3. these moments must be caught and savored... gorgeous!
