Winter Ecstasy

 

“And don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter.

It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.”

                                                                                     ~ Rumi

 

 

And it won’t be long before that riot makes its way above ground.  In spite of the major snowstorm that recently made its way through here, I’m definitely sensing Spring is just around the corner – or should I say, just beneath the surface…

 

No matter the season, wishing you beauty and ecstasy today…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Silence

 

In the silence of an early winter morning

the sun slowly peeks over the horizon

illuminating frosty crystals left behind by winter’s icy breath during the cold, dark night 

They sparkle and shimmer in its golden light

and I sigh

breaking the silence of an early winter morning

Frozen Falls

 

The melody of rushing waters

never ceasing

Nature’s flow persists

through winter’s frozen falls

A good friend and I took a little road trip this past weekend in hopes of finding these falls completely frozen over, because how cool would that be?  But to our surprise, and delight, they were not.  We enjoyed them much more being only partially frozen.  Listening to the beautiful and refreshing melody of rushing waters was an extra lovely sound to hear to in the middle of winter when nature usually sleeps.

 

Wishing all of you a melodious and refreshing week!

Fire and Ice

 

In the morning as I rise

wiping the sleep from my eyes

I awake at the precise moment

 to witness

as fire and ice 

converge
