Enraptured




imagine that life exists
simply and always exists
before and after we meet each spectacular moment
life is

yesterday a breath of air and moisture existed
at night they mingled with freezing temperatures
grew into a delight for our eyes
winter crystals

sun comes to shine
and they melt
but that life
lived before and now after they were born into crystals

imagine that life always is
~


this is where I met these crystalline beauties:


to my eyes
this mornings forest was cloaked in fuzzy frost 
yet up close
I was enraptured with what I found

  1. Absolutely beautiful. We rarely (once every 10 years) get snow or ice, and then it melts very quickly. I guess that's why it fascinates me. These are beautiful captures.
