Did you see it, feel it
did you stop and notice
soak it in, taste it?

I paused,
The horizon,
the foreground
all around me

in wonder, awe
grateful, I paused
stopped my rushing

the sunrise, break of day
frozen and melting
shadow and weak February sun
on new snow

Canary and dusty/powder blue
sculpted on the substantial clouds
(not summer gossamer)
and fused with the
gray below, the edge of land
waking this Wednesday

if you paused
long enough
to drink it in
