Icy sun

When you get up close,

Humble objects can transform.

Sunflower.jpg

Is it a sunflower perhaps with icy petals?

Or a frozen sun

Glowing next to the physical one?

Two suns.jpg

Even when the object is itself —

A screw with ice crystals —

It still retains its humble beauty.

(I’ve still got some crazy deadlines to meet, so will only be posting once this week.)
