August Autumn morning

What can I take from this late August, autumn morning?
Crisp and fresh, bright sun, filtering dappled
Through trees, as I drive. Glimpses
Of shining sea in the distance.

If this was not an ORDINARY day,
If I were on holiday, not working,
I’d stop. Take a picture.
Capture the moment.

“Capture” the moment to look back at later,
And say “Look – how beautiful it was.
How special”. And yet.
The morning is here.

Here, if I capture it…. or not,
Acknowledge it….. or not.
It’s crisp. And fresh. Beautiful.
August. Autumn morning.
