Tiny worlds of crystal

Sometimes, on a rare day of winter perfection,

Ice crystals coat the world —

Icecrystals.jpg

Turning reeds and wire fences

Into small works of abstract art.

Circle.jpg

In fact, you can hardly tell the difference

Between nature’s beauty

And the artifice of a wire fence.

Both glitter with possibility.

  9. Wonderful reflections; and so inspired by your expression “a rare day of winter perfection”… I think, winter is about perfection, somehow…
    And so lovely abstract art, indeed : “Between nature’s beauty
    And the artifice of a wire fence.
    Both glitter with possibility.”

    Great visions captured in pictures, as always! Best regards and a very wonderful and inspired new week to you! Alexa
