Before Sunrise, May 12, 2012

I.
In reddish-goldish light, reflected from above,
four ducks paddle, unhurriedly, one after another.

Behind them, the soft darkness of a wooded island
in silhouette.

Inbetween, on the water’s surface, a shaft of blue,
narrow, slivers of silver interspersed.
The shaft of blue widens, reaches towards me.

After Sunrise, May 12, 2012

II.
I walk the sunrise, along the shoreline.
Beside me, the lake otter swims purposefully,
easily.

We keep company.

III.
Standing nose to blossom,
I inhale
the fragrance of lilac flowers,
open for the first time,
scent still fragile.

Artist's Description

It’s the transitions that intrigue me, dawn to day. And then the otter came. Who could ask for more.
