Sunrise - Portland, ME (2013) - J. Grandbois

This morning I noticed the sunrise.
I didn’t take a photo of it,
or seek a deeper meaning in it,
or think about what adjectives I might ascribe to it.
I just noticed it.
And the winter air on my face,
and the warm cup of coffee in my hand.
And the dark silhouette of the tree,
and the frost on the windows of the cars in the parking lot.
And the caw, caw, caw, of the crows in distant pine.
This morning
as I leaned against the carriage house door.

- Joie Grandbois, 2018
