Morning is my favorite time of day to be out and about, so many of my walks include a sunrise. I love the feeling of anticipation, of the new days, of possibilities.

Sunrise looks spectacular in the nature; sunrise looks spectacular in the photos; sunrise looks spectacular in our dreams; sunrise looks spectacular in the paintings, because it really is spectacular!
― Mehmet Murat ildan

Leaving our cabin in Wyoming in 2017, I had to pause on my way down the mountin to catch a spectacular sunrise the morning of the eclipse. At the time of the actual eclipse, I was in the Badlands.

Sometimes sunrise doesn’t look the way we usually visualize it.

At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear.”
― Norman Maclean, “A River Runs Through It and Other Stories

Sometimes morning is full of promise, leading you into the day.

At sunrise, the blue sky paints herself with gold colors and joyfully dances to the music of a morning breeze.
― Debasish Mridha

If you want to be reminded of the love of the Lord, just watch the sunrise.
― Jeannette Walls, “Half Broke Horses”

Where we live now in the desert, sunrise is generally sudden. The sun isn’t there…and then it is. There isn’t much to block its rising.

Desert heat

After too many weeks of
	positively negative
	temperatures
eyes closed to the coddling sun
	60’s patterns of orange dancing on
	the insides of my eyelids
natural vitamin D
	soaking through skin
	to strengthen bones
unusual wind creating
	sounds of breaking ocean waves
	where spiny cacti stand
I lie quiescent, replete
	mind floating untethered
        above the desert sand.

This week’s photo challenge asks for an unusual point of view or a different way of looking at things.  I took this shot of the sun by peering through the back of one of our dining room chairs and over the table.  You’ll find more examples of “Unusual” by clicking on the word.
