This weekend Mother Nature swept in with cold temperatures and a buffet of precipitation. We had rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow. Needless to say, the roads were icy, schools and businesses had to close and many people lost power.
Mother Nature, however, left me and my trusty camera a gift – the sun came out on Sunday and lit the ice-covered world with a crystal glow. Mother Nature revealed her talent for ice sculpture, and I tried to capture some of it for you.
with icy fingers Mother Nature
paints each bush and tree
with silver gilt she so creates
a winter fantasy…
then I await the morning sun
with rapt anticipation
as it ignites a crystal world
