Goodbye, Winter

Winter’s a curtain God draws while the scene

Alters from ambers to fervent greens

And yet, no mere drape, this skeletal cloth

Itself is alive with a numinous frost

So, come anew, winter, miraculous friend

When your transforming veil is needed again

    Love the flock of sheep surrounded by snow. That could be subtitled, “Where the heck are those green pastures?”

  5. Your eye for Ma Nature, at her very best, never fails, Mitch. Distinctive photos, all, however, I do believe my Croatian roots has me favoring photo #8. Igor Cancarevic’s Ski Trail, all the more.

    That frozen bubble on the snow-covered fern (?) is the one that grabbed my attention. WOW! I’d love to hear the story behind that photograph!

    Although winter photos like these can be lovely, I must admit I’m not sorry to see winter go and am very much looking forward to spring!

  14. These are amazing, Mitch. Marty and I looked at them together, and we’re thinking we may see something similar to that last one this weekend when it may snow on our jonquils. :/
