if i could be any color

i’d choose a shade from either end

of the day’s curtain.

those wake-up hues of dawn

the soothing, sometimes fiery

purples, reds, and golds @ dusk.

i’d be infused with the promise

of a new day & the contentment

of twenty-four hours well-lived.


Sitting on our patio waiting for darkness to descend and the 4th of July fireworks to begin, I was playing with my camera. It was dusk and with just enough light to snap a few photos, I decided to use my flash for kicks – not my strong suit – and was pleasantly surprised with the results.
