Water

water
thirst quenching
fluid
mutable
dancing
within and around
all life

solid until it is not

evaporating
misty fingers flow through the meadow
in tonight's setting light

seemingly flexible
until it is not

frozen
cold
fragile
and hard all at once

myself a
triple water sign
I so relate
can you tell
I am from
California?

  3. You are a skilled and talented photographer. Of that, there is absolutely no doubt.

    I will try to make it a point to stop by your site periodically for a breath of Montana's fresh air.

  6. I love your closups! Ice is so different from day to day, it changes all the time. You take e great shot one day - and go back for more next day - and then it is quite different - or also gone!

    These are beautiful - both colours, shapes and composition. Followed by a interesting poem!

  8. Those are incredible! Any idea what causes the water to freeze in such jewel-like shapes?

    Beautiful poem, too. I know those "misty fingers flowing through the meadow," saw them just last week. Wish I had thought of them that way.

  16. Thank you all for your heartfelt comments, I enjoy you all so much.

    Anno, You ask about how the ice froze in jewel shapes... I do believe they were the beginning of icicles. A sheet of ice formed from the bank of the lake out... then the lake splashes up on it smoothing the top which we are looking down on then drips down from underneath drop by drop. I have never seen that before!

    Many thanks,
    Tammie
