Dawn, Friday in November

 

I wouldn’t normally post anything like this but I’ve been desperate to write again. Haven’t for months. As you can tell from the lack of posts, I’m having trouble finishing book reviews, even though though I’ve read a few books since the last one I posted. So…just trying to encourage myself. Lately I spend a lot of time up early, outside with my puppy. Today I decided to try to capture the experience in words. 

Dawn lightens the sky like the edge of a crisp white dish sliding over a tablecloth. Not even the birds are up. A glowing disc of a moon illuminates the darkness, stars pinpricks of light punctuating the velvety sky. Brown undergirds the light-torn dome, thick mattress of leaves, scudding dusty earth from which all color has been leached.
