Sunrise Glow


I ate breakfast alone this morning,
Middle Sister being sick,
Mom up with her in the night,
Youngest Sister sleeping in,
and Dad away with work.

The world was dark at first
then an orange glow
illuminated the houses
outside the west-facing kitchen window.

Recycling needed to be placed by the curb
on the east side of our house
so I grabbed my camera,
went out into the winter wind,
and looked expectantly at the sky.

I was not disappointed.

As the day grew older,
the sun went away
but that simply made me treasure
the morning's splendor even more.
