Capturing the world with Photography, Painting and Drawing

Monday mornings, mist in the woods

Monday Mornings

Finally breaks the morning light,
ending a long, restful night.

From this place, the sun through the trees,
appears to reveal some misty scene.

Colorless branches contorting the rays of the sun,
light breaking through trees from some place of desolation.

Slowly to the world vision returns,
it becomes apparent that nothing has changed.

So an excuse not to begin the week,
fades into the glimmer of the soft sun rays.

Our tired bodies, hardly able to stir,
begin our long journey to the weeks return.
