Friday 55 & Da Count-Camano Dawn

FRIDAY 55













Mountains,
sky,
and water
scheme together.
They whisper
their incantation
that rises with the sun,
envelops me like the mist
roused from its rest,
rolling along the water,
ascending
as dawn draws it
to the clouds.
The earth inhales...exhales.
Its spell is cast--
the beguiling look
of a lover waking,
smiling,
reaching,
whispering, 
"Stay..."













DA COUNT

Yeah, I actually got up before dawn to take these pictures while I was in Washington.  Me, the girl who hates mornings.  It was worth it.  Just.so.gorgeous.

I love the scheme.
The sunrise and sunset are so fleeting, yet lovely. Who can turn away?

beautiful wake up call

Wow. Beautiful!!!

Very nice pic and poem. As a devoted morning person, even if you don't agree, I guess you can see why.

Getting up before the kids is a big plus too.

It's always an adventure when we're awake at times when we're usually asleep. (See what you've been missing?)

Craig said...

Jet-lag can be a wonderful thing, sometimes. . .

;)

Linc said...

A perfect piece. Thanks!

Suldog said...

Well, yeah, that's the secret we morning people know. It's the loveliest time of the day!

Craver Vii said...

Wow, the pics are gorgeous! I especially like the way the sky from your bottom pic fades to white at the top, so that it appears as if the pine tree is jutting up past the picture's borders.

The poem is lovely.

But what got me the most was that last part about whispering "stay." It resonates with intimate memories that some of us may have shared with our spouses. Whew! Is it getting warm in here?

There's something about that time of day with most of the world asleep that is indeed magical. Gorgeous photos, especially that second one.

Logophile said...

From a fellow non-morning kinda gal let me just say,

yah, it was worth it.
