Morning in the City


Early Birds
are flying high
around the cathedral's spire

An open window
to let in the
cool morning air

The sun climbs
higher chasing
the shadows of the night

Window cleaner
turns a shiny leaf

Forgotten revelers
exposed to the glare
of the morning sun

Two cups of coffee
for a new day make

Morning in the City

  4. Fells like morning. Love the play of the shadows on the sidewalk. That is one of the things about morning shadows and night shadows, to me the look and feel different. Although now that I think about it, it's hard to tell in a picture. Still, I love the photos.

  10. I love the way the sun rises over the tops of buildings to illuminate the walls, sliding down to the street. Those buildings are wonderful to behold, Merisi.
