The sunrise was beautiful this morning. I was lucky enough to catch a glimpse of it when I woke up this morning. I’ve been laying on the couch, facing the window as pictured above, and watching the colors quietly shift and change.
When I first started watching, there was a bit of dark blue at the far corner of the window. The blue has since retreated and been replaced with a lovely lavender color, pale and peaceful. Though the foliage breaks up the scene, I can see that an orange the color of a summertime Push-pop or orange sorbet is starting to take center stage.
As I study the colors, and marvel at their beauty, the painter in me wonders how the purple and the orange can be right next to each other, but there’s no muddying of the colors. There’s no hard line that says “this side is orange/this side is purple.” Then, as if to add to the illusion, a breeze stirs the leaves of the tree and they dance like glitter thrown across this masterpiece.
la vie est belle
