Galaxies of Ice Crystals



this past week 
deep cold temperatures have filled our days and nights
the perfect environment for
crystals to manifest


unique from all i have seen in the past
a bit like the beauty of moths wings
 

layer after layer of beauty came to be


each unique


fragile delights


below the ponds surface
bubbles frozen in time


meadows tall grasses lay down
under the weight of galaxies of crystal beings


their presence inspires joy 
 awe

 
below the ice, a strawberry leaf 
and fuzzy snowflakes on the surface
 
~
if you look at my last post
there is a photo of the ponds surface
now look at how many crystals have formed:
daily
they grow and change

    1. yes, they grew thicker everyday, it was amazing to watch Felicia. Last night we got some snow and now the crystals live under that blanket, hidden from our eyes.

  15. Oh Tammie Lee, the magic that is found when we take the time to LOOK for it! We could either stomp over this beauty as we go about our daily business, or we could stop, as you did, to find diamonds in the snow. It is a miracle, almost as if little elves, fairies, angels of spirits of some kind have diamond cut each crystal! Lovely my friend....and thank you so much for coming by again. I have been so inundated with my job that I find I can only post every 2-4 weeks now. How I love blogging, but I am so unable these days to post more often. But I AM HERE! And enjoying it....

  21. Amazing, almost like a mysterious life-form. I hope we have ice this year, it does appear often here in the winters of East Tennessee.
