Snow fairies

I love it when the snow fairies come to visit:

Turning pine trees into candles;

Snow candles copy

Decorating reeds

With garlands of ice —

Ice crystals

And giving them hair-dos

Made out of spiky crystals.

Spiky copy

The sunlight filters through

Icy fairy art to warm a long-forgotten leaf

Filtered sunlight

And to remind us that we are intertwined —

Together, we can make

The mundane magic.

Intertwined copy

    I think we were walking in the same light this morning. I think the fairies switched us at birth. Perfectly awe inspiring are these photos.
