Rarefied


kneeling on the bank of snow
to glimpse
an aura of light
held within a crystalline form
exquisite refined beauty
grown throughout the night
melts in sunlight
glory
our world
holds immense glory
in your presence
my heart is rarefied

  1. Nature is a perfect Artist! These crystals definitely show us a refined beauty. Your photos and poem capture their brief life for us. Tammie, I looked at "Murmurs of Spring" again. That first photo of the ice along the lake shore - one of my favorites!
