Herring Bone Sunrise

Herring Bone Sunrise short poem

Photo by JohnGoode

Beyond the early morning mist, caressing the mountainous eastern skyline, an exquisite sunrise is being created.
Pastel pink fluffy clouds streaked with gray in the formation of a massive herring. A true display of wilderness serenity.
Clouds shifting in the thermal air currents as a fish skeleton lazily swimming against the swift moving current of a mountain stream.
The slow moving air currents in heaven, guiding this herring bone sunrise into the breaking of day.
From above timberline a magnificent bald eagle soars, out over the valley’s vast expanse.
The eagle’s silhouette gliding upon a wilderness body of water.
This pristine display of Nature blending together on the glassy placid surface of a remote mountain lake. Making this wilderness day so absolute.
