Another Sunrise in My Bathtub

Another sunrise in my bathtub:

My eyes are still blurry, but thankfully the camera’s is not.

This is hubby’s invitation to a cheap vacation: “Lilly, there are clouds!”

A glorious earth roll!

Liquid gold and threads of amethyst move across the sky,

blue blues–variations on a theme,

with me snapping around the droppings on the window–

stupid birds,

shooting past so many obstacles–

stupid houses, hiding my horizon.

Blended deep colors explode, shooting outย shrapnelย of pink puffs.

Then it’s over, and I go back to bed and dream

of editing.

  1. Typo alert in title… “Bathrub” ๐Ÿ˜€ Or is that meant to be poetic. My brain cannot wrap around poetic. Especially after digging up potatoes. Organic, homegrown.

    I like the pictures, though. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve got a swingset view from one bathroom window and sky with trees in another, but no clouds. Occasionally, I regret those calls of nature when I see an unusual bird sighting at the wrong time.

    I don’t see many sunrises, but this one is a beauty. You sound like me when obstacles obstruct my path to the perfect picture.

    I know you don’t always like the rooftops in your photos–but these really work. The first one is especially gorgeous and “together” at least in my humble opinion.

I would love to hear from you!
