morning coffee –
the first splash of dawn
over cold stucco 

Linked to Carpe Diem #674: Channel, where Svetlana Sapozhnikova is our inspiration for today.  She is a modern-day artist from Russia, but she has some wonderful impressionistic paintings which is how she fits into our month of impressionism.  I was struck by that gorgeous orange/ gold/ rust on the right side of the painting.  

Here are our host’s impressions of the paintings:

the sky colors
in the most bright blue and pink
a new day rises

a new day rises
above the Venice channels
fading carnival sounds

fading carnival sounds
even the sun and clouds
are crying

  1. I really like the exactness of the last two lines – almost photographic, again. Then the playfulness of the splash, to tie everything together. Nicely done 🙂
