Eagle dawn, double rainbow

Look closely to see the bald eagle prowling at the edge of the surf beneath two rainbows. Dawn. What a way to wake up. What a morning for this day of rain. Thank you, thank you world.

Poem: Softest of Mornings

by Mary Oliver

Softest of mornings, hello.

And what will you do today, I wonder,

to my heart?

And how much honey can the heart stand, I wonder

before it must break?

This is just the first stanza. If you’d like to read on, do.
