I left my house early this morning. I was running late (probably because I was checking my phone when I should have been drinking my coffee and stuffing my yogurt into my lunch bag) and felt very unsure of making the bus.
I was greeted by a beautiful sight. In front of me, the sun h ad just risen over houses and it truly looked like a ball of fire on the horizon. It didn’t have that definitive round shape. It seemed more globuous***,… more fluid. Streaked defiantly across its face, was a jet contrail****All of this was framed by the trees still leafless in this early spring.
It is Today’s Perfect Moment because, as I noted when I sent the picture out on Instagram, it made me see the day as possibilities unwritten. Dawn, a jet taking off in spite of the sun, and the trees sprouting buds were all clear signs of beginnings. Something is on the cusp of happening, even if I don’t know what it is.
Sadly, I had no time to snap the first picture I saw and had to wait until I could be sure the bus wasn’t coming before I took this one. It isn’t exactly what I saw, but hopefully my descriptions will help.
*** I know globuous is not a word, but how do you define and undefinable shape.
