What I noticed first,
pulling in to the Aldi parking lot,
was the tiny slice of sunset
at the very bottom left.
It loomed large to my eye,
but unfortunately not to my camera.
In the brief time it took for me
to walk across the lot to find
a better, unobstructed view
of that one small slice,
shafts of sunlight shot up through the sky.
My gaze widened and rose, amazed.
This story was much bigger than I thought.
I turned around.
Even a shaft of pale light
rose to the moon.
it was all gone.
You have to pay attention
to slivers of beauty,
be mindful of the moment, and
catch it while you can.
