November – Sweden

November Morning

This morning’s sun unable to gain altitude
floats parallel above the frosted yards
its momentary blinding light
spears through my window
circling the horizon
passing by, not over
hard blue sky above
soon to be arctic cold.

The air so fresh and clear
it almost hurts to breath
exhilarating if it doesn’t kill you
the beginning
snowfall soon
it will get colder

I look forward to it.

Sun Good
1 p.m. Borläge, Sweden

  1. Great use of light and imagery–photo and poem.

    beautiful pictures… the words speak of something very familiar.

    • I suspect we are growing old, Shimon.
      How are you doing these days. Hope you’re feeling better.
      I remember something Pema Chodron said:
      “No matter what you are feeling at this moment, there are a couple million other people feeling exactly the same way.”
