When I left home this morning, and turned east
to walk to the bus stop, I was greeted by curtains of clouds,
extending from behind the treeline up into the heavens.
Behind them, the sun was rising, resting briefly
on the edge of a purple cloud as its rays cast brilliant
orange rays wherever they landed.
It was a perfect, peaceful moment as I stood
on the sidewalk to enjoy all the colors of the sky
that looked like layers of multi-hued chiffon.
