Silver

Late afternoon sun 
breaks through the grey. 

Bare trees coated in ice sparkle like stars. 

Luminous crystals.  Shower of diamond glass.   

     Silver trees.       Silver branches.       Silver salt.       

Soon the moon will  dawn its  silvery light. 

        The landscape is drowning in silver tears.        

Or maybe its my eyes watering from

seeing you for the 
first time.

  2. To see the silver spreading as if with a harmless Midas touch is one of those magical moments you have to catch quickly before it passes. Thank you for shaping it into this poem.

  5. The ice certainly causes you to look at every twig and branch in a whole new light. When the sun came out the other day, it was almost too painful to look at...but glowed like rainbows. Loved your 55, Grace. "silver salt" - what a gorgeous turn of phrase! Love your photos!

  12. I cried to when I saw the first flakes. Although most everywhere more than 20 miles from Detroit got hit much worse than we did. Oddly enough the weather is either afraid to come here or is being unnaturally merciful so far.

  13. Beautiful images Grace! You draw our attention to the beauty of these trees. "Shower of diamond glass." - great line! And the ending is just so romantic.

  14. Grace, you have described SO beautifully what it looks like when the ice coats the trees. It is beautiful to look at (enjoyed your photo), but definitely hard to live with... I love the concept of 'silver tears.'

  18. Beautiful, but cold, yet somehow that silver seems clean and refreshing, as well. And as you say, like art, it makes you see things from a new perspective. Happy holidays, Heaven.
