Still waters at sunrise. Williamsburg, VA. (Click picture for larger view)
"A life all turbulence and noise may seemThe stillness of sunrise; as I watch the smooth waters and rising mist, the "fall collection" dresses the forest with crimsons, golds, and spiced orange. The shadows deepen for an instant as the sun finally crests the hill behind. In minutes, this stream will be alive with wild life, sounds of geese flying overhead and the subtle splash of a fish fetching his breakfast from the waters surface. So let us enjoy this moment of joy, in the stillness of dawn.
To him that leads it wise and to be praised,
But wisdom is a pearl with most success
Sought in still waters."
~ William Cowper, The Task
