Reply It was indeed! if that was this morning, i saw that exact sunrise – pretty spectacular! not familiar with emily’s poem, tho Reply It was this morning – I think everyone in the area was witness to the blessing of that sunrise!! What a beautiful photograph for a beautiful quote. Dickinson is among my favorites. :-) Reply Yes, dear Emily. She is a familiar companion of mine. : ) I’ve been looking forward to the purple sunrise of November, suddenly visibly down my way (a little south of philly) when the leaves come down. Looks just like this! Reply Really? So is this an annual event? I don’t recall ever seeing a sunrise this breath-taking! Well, I don’t know the optimal conditions for these awesome sunrises. But there’ve been several in a row on a few occasions these past few years when I’ve been up early (or late!) enough to see them. Plus I only see the sunrise from my perch in the fall and winter when the trees are bare (just like your picture!). But I haven’t seen these colors yet this November. Your photo encourages me to rise earlier! I was blessed to have a neighbor who is up at the crack of dawn like me – she excitedly emailed and demanded I go outside RIGHT NOW. I’m so glad I did!
