seeing red

I awoke groggy
after falling back asleep
turned to the east
my eyes opened wider
at the colors
of the sunrise
ruby red
with lavender
at the edges
breath taking
and it felt like
it was just for me
for a mere moment later
the sky is gray
winter gray
and dull
I tried to take a picture
even as I savored
the rich colors
filling the firmament
but a photograph
didn’t do it justice
the colors were richer
so vividly alive
and the photo
is faded
in comparison
for the human eye
cannot be duplicated
by the mechanics
of a camera
I’ll carry it with me
my whisper of a moment
face to face
with a ruby red sky
on an ordinary
Monday morning
for the ooh and ahh
of a red sky morn
