Sunrise

The field has been planted.
A chilly night's passing has left a veil of fog where yesterday's sun warmed the earth, dark and rich.
An apricot sky--warmly tinted, yet softly stilled behind soft fuzz.

On our front bank, the poppies, heads heavy with hidden color, greet this morning.











Thanks to Wigger's World for hosting Skywatch Friday each week at his site!
