Spirits, Rising


From the June 2005 archives: a view I'll miss when the sun crests the ridge today. I'll be on my way to work.

It's cool this morning, and the warm first light will lift the vapors from everything the light touches. Dew will rise to cloud, to fall again, if we're fortunate, as rain. We need more moisture badly and let go these mesmerizing ghosts of vapor with some regret. Perhaps we'll see them again, as drops on the metal roof, pattering on the garden rows, kwelling the dust along the road.

What an incredible photograph, is that really water vapor evaporating? Is there a tin roof just below?
