Venus, the morning star

Each morning I go outside at dawn to get my morning paper. It is delivered by Andy who comes and goes on his bicycle. If the weather is raining or snowing, Andy wraps each paper in a bag and drops if off right by the door. If the weather is clear with promise of a beautiful day, he just gives the paper a toss.

My front porch faces East which gives me the first view of the morning light. Today at 5:00, the sky was inky black with a startling view of Venus. If you have not seen it yet, set that alarm clock a little earlier.

Here is my Haiku for this morning...

Venus' morning light
drops early beams of light
guards my garden gate
