Silence is Broken 12.19.18.

Today is one of those cold, winter days with impossibly blue skies. I set out into it for a morning walk and the bronchi in my lungs danced with intensity as I breathed in that frozen air. That sharp, fresh gasp of air, contrasted against sparkling snow, blinding light and clear, blue skies makes me want to burst into song. If I had a little more time I would rewrite the words to this song that Cat Stevens sang so many years ago:
Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world
Sweet the rain’s new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass
Mine is the sunlight
Mine is the morning
Born of the one light Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise ev’ry morning
God’s recreation of the new day
Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing
Praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the world
Songwriters: Eleanor Farjeon / Yusuf Islam

Today’s Prompt:
Take your inspiration from your landscape today. Limit your color palette to your what you see from that place of inspiration.

Everyday through December 25th, I’ll be making a 5×5 inch collage, writing a short entry on this blog and sharing a prompt for those who might want to participate along with me. You can follow my progress by subscribing to this blog through the sidebar on the blog homepage, or by following me on Instagram.

    Your “living in the moment” is palpable. Also love the bird, bike, dots!
