Five mornings this year, so far

by a contributor

from Rachael Nevins, author of And Then Comes January and Parturition:

January 6
Minutes before dawn, the clouds and fog glow blue.

January 13
The sky mysteriously bright, 25 minutes before sunrise.
Stray cats lurking in the last shadows of night.

February 26
Sky still glowing from the dawn, but gray.

March 22
Blots of blue and white, like a child’s watercolor of the sky.

April 2
Look carefully. See the velvety texture of this morning’s gray sky.

For more than a year now, I’ve been tweeting the sky. I was inspired to do so by Sarah Buttenwieser (@standshadows) and recommend the practice.
