It's Time to Wake Up

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

The days are going by,
Motionless black sea;
Through open unknown sky,
Into new times delivery.
The hours were strangers,
Joints are made of waves;
Burgeoning tracks and changers,
Thoughts that no one craves.

The sun flower's coming up,
In dancing shadows dying;
There is no ending or a stop,
Only the brief hours flying.
Borders of dim to follow,
Seeking some reflection veils;
Ancient light now hollow,
Fresh morning of other avails.

Switching off blinking stars,
Dancing dawn now rising;
The peaceful going memoirs,
Into colors of life devising.
Slowly the falling night skies,
Road is awaken with living;
It's time to wake up and rise,
Moments of morning giving.

This is simply amazing. I love the light you've captured and the monotone colour is brilliant. It looks like you put time in finding the perfect time of day for this photo.

The view in the background is also beautiful, but blurred enough that it does not distract from the photo, but instead adds to it. This would be a gorgeous view to wake up to!

I especially like the tones captured in the saucer holding the cup. The shadows and highlights are so smooth and lovely there.

The only critique I have is a very small one, and mostly based on opinion. It's that the cup isn't exactly centered (which is fine), but it also isn't quite off center enough to look like it was done on purpose. I feel like if it was pushed slightly more to the right it would make for a better composition. I think some people like the positioning, though, so that may just be my view.

Overall, a beautiful photo! Keep it up!
