She Told Me To Look


Have you ever noticed the most gorgeous
part of a sunrise happens long before
you see the sun?

A curious thought...
...beauty offered from a source
you cannot see...

hmmmmm...

Yesterday,
feeling the warning signals of a silent migraine,
I crawled into bed in the early evening.
A short while later, my sister texts me:

Go look at the sky.


I did.
Feasting my eyes on a fiery,
hot pink horizon,
I cried.
For the sunset? Yes, a bit -
more for the fact that it was my
sister telling Me to Look.

  2. The sky's very spaciousness has a way of offering solace and comfort especially when earthbound events begin to weigh us down. That same Tuesday, January 5, the California sunset buoyed my spirits on a day that had been difficult. My Wednesday Tanka told the story.

    I hope you're feeling better. And I'm grateful you've got a loving sister in your life.
