Along the Shore

A layer of surface ice
turned to broken shards


wind stirs
with every wave
they wash over one another


song a bit like crickets
a bit like glass
fill the day
not a sweet song
yet a perfect one-time symphony:
Improv for Spring


For more water: Watery Wednesday

  1. I always want to touch your photos. I want to feel the ice and rub my thumb across the smooth stones. Peace.

  19. It looks just like broken glass. I wonder if it sounds much like broken bits of shells going back and forth in the waves?

    Happy Wednesday,

  23. Very beautiful. It is amazing how much it looks like glass. It shows both the fragility and strength of ice.

  24. That is an extraordinary ice formation - wow so beautifully captured by you on film. I like the poem too - the idea of a song a bit like glass. Neat imagery with that!

  26. Tamie these are priceless shots! I mean not everyone can moments of nature like that. I love both photos. The upper one looks like a broken glass (naturally beautiful) and the lower photo also reminds me of soft and slow transition.

    I got the sun on the water in the entry this week. :)

    Happy WW!

  32. Hi Tammie,

    Icicles reminds me of my student days in Canada. My flatmate used to hang up his pair of jeans on the line at the balcony overnight.

    The next morning, there were icicles hanging down from the legs of the jeans, He swore they were dry. Those were the days before we knew about dry freeze.

  34. I wish I could hear that music. How beautifully you have captured it. How lovely that tune must be.

  35. I think I am a bit late to the party...

    But hopefully not too late to tell you that they're two stunning photos, of quite a beautiful phenomena :)

    I wish scenes like that could appear in the UK...!
