Nothing that is can pause or stay;
The moon will wax, the moon will wane,
The mist and cloud will turn to rain,
The rain to mist and cloud again,
Tomorrow be today.
-  Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
That Ol' Texas Moon!

A shaft of sunshine light up a field, just as I was driving by. The colors were remarkable.

 The Prairie-Grass Dividing

   THE prairie-grass dividing--its special odor breathing,
   I demand of it the spiritual corresponding,
   Demand the most copious and close companionship of men,
   Demand the blades to rise of words, acts, beings,
   Those of the open atmosphere, coarse, sunlit, fresh, nutritious,
   Those that go their own gait, erect, stepping with freedom and
         command--leading, not following,
   Those with a never-quell'd audacity--those with sweet and lusty
         flesh, clear of taint,
   Those that look carelessly in the faces of Presidents and Governors,
         as to say, Who are you?
   Those of earth-born passion, simple, never-constrain'd, never
         obedient,
   Those of inland America.     

--Walt Whitman

Daybreak

Behold this January morn,
Is something to behold.
A crisp bright snap is in the air
It’s nippy and quiet cold

A Maxfield Parrish sky today--
A  palate of gold and teal
My silent prayer of gratitude
Will tell You how I feel

To wake up and appreciate
The beauty of the dawn
Because this January day 
Will much too soon be gone

A gaze into the sky, once more
Brings gladness to my face
As a glittery gift of white drifts down
Of purest, crystal lace.

(Daybreak by Shelley D. Sparks)

A gaze into the sky, once more
