seven minutes of light

Out of nowhere late this afternoon, brilliant sunlight washed overhead, splashing the treetops in the eastern sky. It shone so brightly, that I felt it while working at my desk, and found myself running outside. The geese were loud, the light was exhilarating and I was tingling, delighted to feel so alive. Five minutes later…it was gone.

  1. Yes! Linda Harper pointed out that exact amazement of light falling in swaths across her yard this afternoon… it was breathtaking…

    Thanks for capturing it…

  2. Yes, and at that very moment, over in distant NW DC, I was out in a cul-de-sac with three grandsons winging the old pill around the horn World Series-like when I noticed the same golden tipped tops of the surrounding majestic trees. “Look,” I shouted, “the tree tops are light up with gold! They’re so amazing.” The threesome stopped, turned and looked up, baseball gloves and arms hanging quietly at their small sides. Seven, nine and eleven years old, almost in unison, “Oh, wow, Papa Charlie, it’s so beautiful. Look, there’s almost a rainbow!” On the low thin clouds, the pastels shone multi-colored. And then it was gone, in a blink. And the play resumed, even more spritely. Go Royals!
