The beauty of sunrise that greets me

Slice of Life Challenge #28 March 28, 2011

I was up early this morning, & the sun, per usual was arising. It was so beautiful that I just grabbed the camera & took some photos. Here’s one of the good ones. Don’t we have a wonderful view from the back of our home? I had hoped to post this earlier, but several phone calls from friends kept me talking instead of writing.

More to get ready for poetry month:

Poems written upon awakening at dawn are called aubades.

dawn awakens hope

sun’s circle takes me into

good slices of life

  5. Thank you so much for replying to my students' posts. They have been so diligent and engaged this month, and knowing that their writing has reached someone they don't even know has really rocked their world!

  6. Tracy, I really am enjoying their writing. Isn't it great that they have so many different things to say, & different voices, too!

  9. This reminds me of a comment one of my 8th graders made today! We read a poem called "Lost" from Atwell's Lessons that Change Writers binder, about a boy getting lost in playing the piano. Then, I asked my students, "What do you get lost in?" One of them answered, "Sunsets." Your poetic tribute to the sunrise made me smile. I don't cease to be amazed at how many connections arise amongst the TWT Slice of Life Challenge community!

  10. Just read your comment on my blog. I'm so loving your Colorado beauty. I'm up outside Nederland at my sister's home. When in Missouri, I teach fourth grade in Columbia. However, I grew up in Kansas City and taught in rural northwest Missouri schools. Do you have mid-Missouri relatives?

  11. Wow Linda, what a beautiful picture and a lovely poem. Aubades - I had never heard that word before. And what a wonderful thought that through ages of writing humans have shared the inspiring emotions of dawn. Your poem is so full of hopeful joy!
