The Morning Star

Lincoln Park along side Lake Michigan presents many beautiful sites and I enjoy them most when I am on one of my early morning runs. During special times of the year and very early in the morning just as the sun is beginning to rise I turn my eyed upward and view the scenery above. This morning I had a view of Venus, the 'morning star'. It is impressive and cool in its majesty sending sufficient light over a massive distance to be seen from the earth. It is amazing that in the heart of a very large city it is still possible to enjoy sights like this, transporting the viewer away from his urban surroundings and into a world of reverie and dreams. The morning star in the night sky illuminates the runner in the park.
