5:43 a.m. Essex Inn, Newburyport, MA. Pink and purple clouds dot the sky.
The clouds move across the sky.
The clouds are dark in places. Maybe the dark clouds are thicker. Maybe just as clouds cast shadows on the earth, buildings cast shadows on clouds. Maybe it is just because of the position of the sun in the sky.
The sun filters through casting a pink light on everything it touches.
Slowly the sun rises and the sky changes color. The light clouds stand out on a bright blue sky.
It is already very warm. The birds chirp. A bumble bee buzzes by the window.
Behind the buildings and trees to the east a peek of bright pink is slow to disappear.
Smokey puffy, friendly clouds keep moving away. No birds fly across the sky.
The natural beauty of the clouds and the sky are juxtaposed against the large commercial buildings and telephone poles.
