Glorious Halo

on Flickr

Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. In March, 2018, just outside our house, one small cloud hid the sun allowing us the chance to photograph the glorious halo shining down from us. We felt fortunate to be blessed with nature’s spring sunshine. For information on halos, sundogs, and sun pillars, see this National Weather Service information page.

I opened the photo in a great app that is like Photoshop, but is available for Mac and iOS at a reasonable price: Serif’s Affinity Photo. I spottily erased the right side of the picture to have it melt into the matching blue background I added below the photo. And then I added the text in a font that mimicked the texture of clouds.

Glorious Halo

High in the March sky
Sunshine slips through ice,
Crystals of water refracted
into a circle of white just as lovely
as a rainbow on a summer day
