Stars Made of Snow


I woke this morning
to a blue sky
and
stars made of snow
floating lightly
to the earth below
they have since melted
sky now cloudy blue
I share with you Easter stars
a bit like me and you
from heaven
on earth
a transient
beautiful dance
not one the same
and yet born
of the same substance
a cognizance
we rise from the same breath of life

  2. I was happy to see there would be a poem and photo from you today, Tammie, and what a gift both are! Your capture of the snowflakes plus the realization that they are such a perfect metaphor brings a smile to my day. You are certainly a breath of Life to me!

  7. What a wonderful, loving relationship between image and text! I did not think that a snow picture after this long winter still could touch me so much emotionally, but your picture is a dream!

  22. Blue sky and snow must be a joy to behold, especially now that snow will be rare.

    Thank you so much for your visit to that other blog (!), I'm glad you like the boots (you should have seen the jaws of my colleagues drop! ;-))

    Yes, I do cook, but the gorgeous chocolate cake you saw was made by the co-author of the blog who is a far better cook that I am!

    I hope you had a good Easter Tammie.

  41. .
    of the same substance -- twins and stars yes
    rise from the same breath of life -- stars yes and lovers perhaps as they kiss or maybe even hold hands.

    Both lovers and twins know the unspoken feelings of their mate.

    I like your description and feelings of the new snow. They picture is nice too. Thank you,

  44. Hi Tammie,

    I have been commenting on your site, and then I realise there is another Tammie, Bella which you also comment. Both of you are artist.

    I share with you this Chinese thought. When the Chinese name their children names, certain names will have the feng shui for certain thing. may be Tammie means being artistic.

    What do you think?

    I am commenting this on Bella's site too.

Thank you for visiting and also for sharing your thoughts and feelings. Seeing through your eyes and heart mean so much to me!

Tammie
