Possibilities Unwritten


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.

    If the purpose of words is to communicate meaning and I know exactly what you mean when you say this word, then I think globulous is too a word. 🙂 Beautiful “perfect moment.”

  4. “how do you define an undefinable shape” … in this instance globular? … spherical? … nebulous?
