In the pink

The first frost of the season

Sprinkled the flowers

With pink and ice.

Frosted pink

Silken threads of web

Filled the spaces

Between frozen water drops.

Pink webs

The last rose of the season

Seemed more perfect in

Its imperfection

Rose

And dropped a single petal

As a farewell to summer.

  4. Absolutely exquisite! The frost makes it even more beautiful!

    I am still in Germany but wedding celebrations are now slowing down and for the first time since arriving I have been able to do some long overdue comment moderation. It has been lovely visiting. I still have a few more days being with my family and will be making the journey home in a few days. Back to doing a little sight-seeing tomorrow in the meantime

  5. That scrim of frost adds a sugary glaze – sweet perfection. The rose wearing its heart shaped petals is frozen into elegance. Chilly and gorgeous shots, Fi. We’re to get more snow tonight.
