On Finding ‘Shadow’ at Sunrise

Wrought iron
curlicued on stone
allows the mind to wander
beyond the eye
           onto a stair
        that travels ever upward
     as far as the imagination
  can stretch…
as close to heaven
  as the morning sun
    rising to praise a new day.

A photograph found at Poetry and Art
inspired these words early this morning. The sun was just
rising here and for a moment seemed to spill over into the photo.
