this bucolic morning

September 27, 2012

fall has come to the farm.

the mornings are crisp, dark.

after months of unrelenting heat and drought,

we have had two nights of soft and steady rain.

coming in from feeding the animals this morning,

i put coffee on and stood at the kitchen window.

with a blanket of ground fog forming,

i watched neighbors around us disappear and reappear as the mists swirled.

precipitation took the form of snow in the high country

with frosty peaks marking the western horizon,

while to the east the morning sun finally cleared the horizon and the bank of clouds above it.

the brightness was breathtaking.

i watched in awe as fine filaments of light

spooled through the dense tangle of branches overhead.

in the shadows water droplets clung to cool, damp surfaces

as morning came bearing down to claim her new day.

we live in a wonderland.
