Sunrise Coffee

It poured yesterday, a gloomy 40 degree day of wet winter gray. This morning dawned bright and cold, 28 degrees. The sun was rising just as the coffee brewed.

Sitting at the dining room table, with a hot cup of coffee, I watched the sun rise through the east windows.

The Dawn viburnum outside the dining room window, so aptly named, welcomed the sunrise.

And then the sun peeked up over the tree line and began to light the books in the bookcase across from the windows.

It only took a few moments, not even the time to drink a full cup of coffee, and then the house was bathed in sunlight.
