November Morning, Edinburgh














Over breakfast I watch the sunrise
fiery orange giving way
to red and grey patchwork clouds.
Colour fades then
sky clears to perfect cold blue.

Golden leaves lie crisp
on the lawn.

That could be a November morning in Ontario, Canada!

That sounds like a beautiful morning. I heard it's getting cold in Edinburgh right now - it seems strange when summer is on its way here
