Beauty is a star falling removed from its warmth, its shape frozen forever crystalline on the ground until the sun shines.

I SEE ANGLES (WPC: Angular)
Steep northeastern roofs make the snow slide safely to the ground but when the sun is bright, the snow melts slowly, the water freezes as it drips, icicles form. They glitter like Christmas Tree ornaments but those pointy tips spell danger to me. WPC: ANGULAR
AUTUMN SNOW (for WPC: Descent 2)
Winter came in November the first snowfall was pristine falling fast like soggy puffs heavy with unfulfilled dreams. How the children squealed with delight and ran outdoors with open arms to catch the falling flakes with an expectant tongue. I watched from the window how the children danced while my heart retreated from the swirlingContinue reading “AUTUMN SNOW (for WPC: Descent 2)”

IN A FLOWERY (AND THANKFUL) MOOD
I realized that I failed to make a Valentine’s Day post. Apart from a rather busy time, I was also having trouble staring at the computer screen for extended periods. I would get woozy from staring at the screen for too long. Today is a beautiful day, in a winter kind of way. The sunContinue reading “IN A FLOWERY (AND THANKFUL) MOOD”

Yet, for all their effort they could only creak oh! those bony limbs – so fragile and weak. Alas! how theContinue reading “LIFE OUTSIDE MY WINDOW”

HAPPY NEW YEAR
OUR CELEBRATION The year slipped into the woods unnoticed, except by the stars looking down from above. The deep snow must have muffled its steps and the frigid winds trapped its voice while they kept us buried under layers and layers of quilts behind sealed windows and doors.
Treetops all aglow hope of a beautiful day the sun is frozen ~~~~ We expect cold days ahead. I understand that our highs will be in the single digits, even zero, in the next couple of days. Happy day, wherever you may be. 🙂 For Daily Prompt’s BRIGHT.
