Delighted about: Spring Equinox


Metamorphosis, Winter into Spring


meadow creek
icing up at night
frozen for our delight
temporal gems glisten 
juicy in sunlight
morning rays illuminate
golden liquid light
a seasons dance
winter into spring

Winter into spring is such a lively time, though here in the NW of Montana spring slides in slowly. 
Yesterday skies were blue and brimming with stormy clouds. Then a howling wind blew in,
branches and leaves flying and crashing. Hail tiny played like wild music on the metal roof, frozen balls growing larger with each moment. 
Becoming tiny flakes of snow 
soon to be the size of small feathers.
For twenty minutes we had a wild storm, it slid away as fast as it arrived.
Blue sky peaked out here and there and so it goes
when winter begins to dance with spring.

Happy Equinox!
May blessings touch and fill your lives
as our days grow longer.

P.S. spring sightings:
last Sunday, first butterfly of the year
and
first bear tracks as well!

  20. I love how water dances ... as fluid, as a vapor, as a solid ... and the magic in between them all!

    You *see* Nature as poetry. You really do!

  21. I see ice jewels in your creek as well as molten gold and a leafy pendant - treasures in the water. We got a foot of snow in Denver today - the winter coats are out again.

  35. Tammie,
    I love, love, love these images, especially the red leaf under the glassy ice. You can almost hear the ice cracking and melting in these photos, as the warmer weather arrives... Yay, at last!
    Happy Spring Equinox to you too!
    Love, Jo.x:)

  39. I came here through macro monday and should probably be commenting on that post, but I just loved the last photo in this post. It's like a piece of art.

    Happy Spring!

  40. Tammie,
    As always coming here is a breath of magic. I love looking through your eyes.
    Spring in the Ca. central valley foothills, is not slow...at the first sign of temperatures raising every thing WAKES UP...and starts growing. I think we could literally watch the green, green grasses grow if we sat still long enough. Grasses grow, wild flowers bloom, the burrowing animals come out to play....people feel a little itch to frolic or just lay in the grass and watch the skies and out come the shorts and sundresses. And then BOOM it's summer...we wake up one morning and it's HOT and the grass is brown.
    hug, hug

  45. Gorgeous icy photos, Tammie. And most of all, the spring sightings made me smile: a butterfly - yes, I can identify with that. And bear tracks?!!! I can report only a lot of large, furry queen bees buzzing around. Very unusually, we have had a relapse back into winter. Very cold here today, and in Scotland and Northern Ireland there has been more heavy snow. I know your snow will melt soon, and then you will be on your way to summer's heat.
