Iced

Spring on ice is a lovely performance

With frozen splashes of purple,

Iced over buds of yellow

And the green candles of evergreens

Decorated with nature’s lights of ice.

(As you can see, we’ve have had some cold weather this week.)

Frozen beauty

Saturday morning was well below freezing.

Passing by the local church, I saw

A riot of colours on the grass.

Riot of pink.jpg

Bouquets of flowers for the departed:

From iced-over pastel pink

Frozen rose.jpg

And bright, frosted

Folds of orange

Orange folds.jpg

To the quieter tones

Of white beauty.

Frozen

The power of winter

Stops water in its tracks —

Frozen tracks.jpg

Freezing reflections and skies

Onto its icy surface.

Scenes like this make me want to burst out into song: ‘The cold never bothered me anyway.’

Golden wonder

The early winter light

Is all about long, warm shadows;

It’s about painting frozen trees

With golden lace

And transforming the sky

Into a wonder of pink and gold.

Spring sparkles

We celebrated the spring equinox

With snow and blue skies.

Blue skies

Ice drops

Sparkled from daring buds —

The fuzzy catkins

Looked lovely in their cold diamond earrings,

Ice drop

And the hazel flowers

Glittered in the sunlight.

Even though it was still winter on a spring day —

Those sparkly skies were beautiful and uplifting.

A winter’s tale

Back in February, we took a trip to visit a new friend

Living on the shore of a large inland lake.

High and dry

Some boats were marooned in the harbour

And people strolled out onto the frozen lake

To enjoy the view.

Sky

I felt all buoyed up

By the dazzling snow and sunlight.

Buoys

Just as we were leaving,

The sun made a glorious spectacle of itself

Casting a golden glow over this winter’s tale.

Wonderland

It’s been a fairly mild winter again.

But back in December, we enjoyed a week or so of wonderland!

I found some lamps ready to light the way

Lamps

And a little brown cabin

Enjoying the view of the frozen lake.

Little boat house

This magnificent tree

Looked lovely in its winter dress of hoar frost —

Tree

As did Ruby!

But my favourite sight has to be

This hidden red cottage

Nestled in a bed of frosted branches.

When winter gives you ice

Sometimes I like to imagine that

The frozen over lake is a beach —

Frozen waves

A different kind of beach

With frozen waves

Sunset waves

And a golden glow that isn’t from sand

But from the setting winter sun.

(Sometimes it’s great to have a vivid imagination!)

Frozen beauty

If you could see cold —

Then it might be painted with frost and lilac

And the first blush of a late winter dawn.

Swan Lake – the frozen version

A while back – before the ice melted on the lake —

Stormy pink clouds attracted my attention.

Swans

 

Among the reflected clouds,

I saw a feathered group of swans,

Enjoying the dawn.

Iced swans

They remained there for a long time,

As if frozen to the ice.

Later on, they were gone

And only their memory — along with the clouds —

Remained.
