I started taking pictures out the east side of our house
a little after 7 AM this morning.
The northern lights were broad bands across the darkness,
with a sprinkling of stars randomly cast about.
A few hours later the sun began to light up the sky.
It was the coldest morning we have had so far,
reaching -8 at its bottom.
But the sun was a warm blaze across the sky
glistening on the frost
As it quietly awakened the day.....
