9 January


i was hunkered down under two

duvets with a cup of coffee

and no plans for getting up 

any time at all before spring

you came into the room and

told me of the sea fog

rolling in over the Atlantic ocean

just outside of our bedroom windows

you charmed me with your enthusiasm 

into dressing in layers upon layers

to venture out into the arctic

superfluous cold - sunrise with the Nikon


  1. Sigh that was beautiful
    My husband once woke me to see the beautiful pink sun rise who knew..?

  2. Well, I'd say it was worth every layer and more. Beautiful and very dramatic!

  3. The views certainly rewarded your efforts. Beautiful shots...

  4. Isn't it a beautiful sight? I love to stand on a hill over the Pacific to watch the sea fog roll in.

  5. Happy New Year! I enjoyed the layer after layers being shown in the photographs as well as the poem. Just lovely.

  7. A nice surprise to escape your cocoon for! Lovely!

  8. Beautiful sky capture! Lovely post and images.. I like your six words. Have a happy weekend!

  9. Awww. I love that you got up and went even though you were warm and comfy. Nice pictures. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend and stay warm. Brrrrr......

  10. I enjoyed both your photo and words. The layering of your clothing parallels the layering in your photo so well.

  11. Gorgeous! I imagine you're very glad you got out to see this!

  12. Beautiful photos and words!

  13. Wonderful photo and accompanying words.

  14. It's nice to have someone who pays attention to such things, alerting us to photo ops that might otherwise be missed. Nicely contrasted photos.

  15. I never tire of ocean views! The fog is awesome.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
