Mountain water, sparkling stillness gleaming…
Evocative as canvas recreation,
Sweep as only nature’s brush can etch…
The edge of dawn invades the salt sea air,

If one didn’t know it was a sunrise, one could believe it was an unusually brilliant night star.

“…oft-elusive inspiration is directly in front if me, in a simple vase of unpretentious, freshly-cut tulips, blossoming in the warming rays of the morning sun.”
