Half-Light # 1: Cat Stevens, “Morning Has Broken”

Early Morning, Lansing Street, Mendocino

The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is HALF-LIGHT:

  • “See if you can capture the beauty of morning or evening half-light in your corner of the globe.”

To complicate things even more, we’re supposed to include “a favorite poem, verse, story, or song lyric.”

When self thinks of morning, she always thinks of the Cat Stevens song:

Morning has broken like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word

She found the lyrics on metrolyrics.com

Here’s morning just outside the Mendocino Art Center on Little Lake Street, in February:

And here’s another verse of the same song:

Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God’s recreation of the new day

And finally, a shot of the morning sun through the window of her unit in the Mendocino Art Center:

    • Thank you very much for leaving a comment. When I’m in Mendocino, I become very “Zen” and I think these photos reflect that.

      I took that shot of the Mendocino Art Center because I happened to look behind me. I was about to cross the street. I don’t know what made me stop and look back. If I hadn’t stopped to look behind me, that shot would never be. Funny to think about.
