Pond Writing


last night was starry
which means that it got cold
20F when I awoke


the morning was frosty
sparkling and full of rainbow lights


the ponds froze over


as i admired the surface of the pond
i thought it appeared like a foreign language


script carved into the ice


a temporary story


perhaps written for the fish below


or a tale
for the world above

  1. What wonderful images of the frost and ice! The patterns in the ice do indeed look like some sort of symbolic language that nature has invented! Beautiful!

      Water writing perhaps.

  3. Perhaps it is a script for both worlds. It tells the world below true stories of what goes on above, and it tells the world above lovely stories of what goes on below. We can only imagine. And grin at the very thought. :D

  15. Your images of the ice on the pond are delightful, Tammie. We are getting our first heavy frosts of the winter this week. I'm struggling to keep water available for the birds, and the hedgehogs that have not yet hibernated.

    If you're wondering about my deleted comment, I suddenly realised that I'd mis-spelled your name!

    Best wishes - - - Richard

    1. Thank you Richard,

      I hope it works out with water and your birds. Things freeze on and off daily here. We are going into some deep cold, so everything will be frozen.

  16. Oh yes you are so right, those marks on the ice could well be messages or script, such beautiful markings to enjoy, I love how you capture the magic that is all around you, so great to see your little cabin again, what a peaceful and special place it must be to live in! It will be so cosy and magical when you get your first real snow falls!

    1. Fun that you also can see how the marks could be some sort of message.
      Thank you for enjoying the photos. We have enough snow now that I don't think that it will go away till spring.
