#NewThisDay Writing From My Photo Stream

 Leaf

Leaf

An early morning hike under clouds. I'm grateful to have my Sunday Sanctuary time in the earliest part of the day over the rocks, not even a boat in sight. I stop at the overlook and snap this photo of Vineyard Sound from Prospect Hill hiking trail, and it's spectacular. But it's the simple, natural art that nature makes from weeds and leaves that moves me most this morning. A branch of seaweed spontaneously splayed on a smooth beach stone. A fallen leaf in the splendid mosaic - bold and contrasting colors of decay on green grass after I climb the stairs on the way home up the dirt road. Day begins like this, eyes seeking, heart lifting, spirit thumping with gratitude.
