Our warm break
is having a short break
of chilly winds
spectacularly heavy clouds
Margaret Atwood’s words seemed appropriate:
“What breaks in daybreak? Is it the night? Is it the sun, cracked in two by the horizon like an egg, spilling out light?”
ps…. sad news about the orange. Someone picked it up. I expect the bin to be leaving soon!

I appreciate that Margaret Atwood quotation. Native speakers of a language seldom stop to question why certain things are called what they’re called, or expressed in the phrases that they are. For example, with the verb understand, what are we standing under, and what does standing have to do with comprehending?
You are right and this word especially “understand” is quite a puzzle to linguists still. The greek equivalent “katalaveno” derives from I seize – I grasp, which makes sense.
Similarly, in informal English we can say “I get it” for “I understand.”
Yes, I know and it makes sense! 😉
So you get it.
Ah, a lovely breakthrough! The orange has different important work to do 😉 XXX
I like that thought. Maybe you’re right!
Thank you, my dear friend! Happy Monday and week ahead! 🌟🤗🧡
Thank you; you too 🙂 XXX
the wind blew all warmth away here too Marina though with less drama. Such a brilliant quote you chose too – Happy Friday!!
Expect some warmth to be back then! Our chill is smoothing up! Thank you, my dear Laura. I thought it was appropriate!
Happy Friday to you too and a great weekend ahead! xoxo
Happy Friday 🐉
Happy Friday, my dear 🐉
Beautiful photos and excellent haiku and share of Margaret Atwood!
As to the orange… it was its time; what can we do?
Happy Almost Friday!
Aw, thank you, Dale!!! Haiku was unintentional and M.A. seemed perfect! 😉
As for Romeorange (Resa’s name), like Resa suggested, I’ll also dream they are in a Mid Spring’s Night’s Dump!!!
Happy -oh most definitely- Friday!!!
Don’t you love when that happens? 🙂
Romeorange! Love it.
Oh yeah! Happy DEFINITELY is Friday! xoxo
Maybe Resa will create a new AGM adventure for Romeorange and Juliettebin!!!!!!
Haha! She would be wild enough to! xoxoxoxo
Yes she would!!!!!! 😉 😂🤣😍🤗
I Only hope someone threw him into Juliettebin.
Happy Thursday into Friday.. if you’re not an orange.
Who knows? They could actually be together, in A Mid Spring’s Night’s Dump.
As a romantic, I’ll dream!
I’ll dream too that Mid Spring’s Night’s Dump!! Juliettebin is for paper only, but who knows, maybe Romeorange turned to paper just to join her, forever!
Sending hugs and love
and wishes for a beautiful weekend ahead!!!!!!
I just finished my new Art Gown. I’m flying through the weekend! You have a great one!
I can’t wait to see it!!!!!!!!!
Huge hugs and lots of kisses!!!
But you have captured the “Orange” moment forever. Welcome to a new day of possibilities. Sunrise offers so many possibilities.
I’m so glad I caught it on time!
Ah, yes, the sunrise offers so many possibilities & new beginnings. One more day in our lives. Precious.
Thank you, my dear Rebecca! xoxo
Beautiful…majestic. March weather is truly a teeter-totter! The orange gave us some joy amidst all that peppery snow. 🙂
Ah, yes, March is the month for cloudwatchers! [and October]
Poor Orange, it did! Glad I caught it before it left! Now I’ll always remember that snow as ‘peppery’ because of you! xoxoxoxo
Thank you, my dear Willow! ❤
Let the early light shine down. Beautiful photo. Sad news on the orange. Señor Orange RIP.
Thanks, my friend! 🙏
Poor señor O… 🍊
