May Dawn


Even if not by nature, it’s probably in one’s best interest to be simple minded.

A glance out the window this week as dawn manifested left us transfixed, wondering.

Why do some clouds seem like wisps of smoke in the air, others more like ripples of water barely disturbing a quiescent surface?

What is the name of the color when it’s no longer pink and yet to grow full blue?

Certainly, smart people and Google know the answers to these questions, which, no doubt have to do with time of day, temperature, humidity, angle of the sun, atmospheric density, etc…

Right now, smart people’s numbers are in my phone, Google search is two clicks away.

Definitive answers close at hand, yet, still, it seems more right to sit, and simply wonder.
