Why I Wake Early

"Lest we would sift down
into fractions, and facts
and what the soul is, also
I believe I will never quite know.
Though I play at the edges of knowing,
truly I know
our part is not knowing,
but looking, and touching, and loving,
which is the way I walked on,
through the pale-pink morning light."

{Mary Oliver}

As pathetic as it sounds, I could probably count the number of sunrises I've seen on two hands because I'm not exactly what people would call a "morning person", but I made a rare appearance outside at the crack of dawn last week and captured this pastel palette minutes before the sky slipped back into a much less spectacular version of itself. I can honestly tell you that these are the authentic and true colors of this Colorado sunrise. No photoshop trickery here. Clouds are PINK in the morning!! WHAAA??? That's just crazy talk. Who knew?!? Guess I should get up a little earlier now and then because, obviously, I have been missing out.
