Coming out of the gray

Of day-to-day reality

Basking in the warmth

Of your sunbeam

That bright happy spot

Where everything is safe

Time stands still


Diamond dust motes

Glittering in the air

Before my closed eyes

Dreamily drifting

Into a comfortable cozy

Where everything is safe

Time stands still


Sunshine and shadows

Exposure of hidden fears and worries

Falling tears

Clouding my vision

Longingly wishing for the sunbeam

The hopes and dreams

Where everything is safe

Time stands still

Sunrise Sunset

I love sunrises and sunsets. It never fails to amaze me when God chooses to bless us with beautiful colors.

I started taking sunrise/sunset pictures in October. The following pictures are the first ones I took on my way to and from work. I have almost been late to work more than once becauseI was looking for an unobstructed view and a place to stop the car to shoot the picture!

We had a couple of snowstorms in December. I took the following pictures in Rio Rancho on Dec. 9.

I came out of the house to see the moon peeking over my neighbors house on Jan 9.

This picture was taken on Rio Grande Blvd. in Albuquerque this morning.
