The deliciousness of blue

Have you ever seen anything more startlingly lovely

Than a bird singing in the blue of a winter sky —

Or tasted  anything as delicious as the creamy snow

Glittering on the shelves of trees?

And have you heard anything sweeter

Than the music created by sunshine

Streaming in through a stained glass window of branches?

  3. Ahhhh!! You transport me to another world. Crisp and beautiful…and that blue sky…sigh! But what I like most are the words that go along with it.
    Thank you.

  4. I like the last one…the way the light filters and outlines. I also enjoy meeting other people who look up into trees.

  12. You find the very best of winter to show us, Fi. The light through the branches is my favorite. Thank you so much for my POTW recommendation! I was quite surprised. I have the Grandchildren for a few days, so not much time for the computer. Have a good weekend with Family.
