A Magical Morning

A brisk winter morning
spent seeking the Fab Five
before duty called me to leave
such a wonderous sight
only to discover there was more.
I stood surveying the skies
checking off the list of Mercury
so dimitiive under the brightness
of Venus that held her own
beneath Saturn, then followed its
brillance upward to Mars diminishing
in the dawn light while Jupiter
was still bright in the heavens.
The more was the gentle falling of frost,
ice crystals softly and silently fell
on to the earth; naked branches
soon glistened, ground snow was
became a carpet of crystals, 
and I inhaled natures magic...

    1. There are those who grumble and there are those who shrug and smile. We're the latter :)

    2. Oh I do a far bit of grumbling, but mostly toward other humans who mess with nature...

      I had a wood duck hen calling from the open section of the pond today. I went out with some pellets for the mallards and up on the lawn with them. Woody ducks are so shy. I could't believe it, but this is not the first time I think she has called me...She used her Momma duck call voice which is loud for this tiny duck.... Strange...Michelle

    3. Wood ducks are absolutely stunning ! You are blessed Michelle, she knew your soul. I'm a firm believer in the connection. I had a mouse appear in the kitchen one morning. I ummm, talked to it, basically saying "this house ain't for the two of us". It disappeared and haven't seen it in weeks :) They know.


Don't be shy. I know you've popped by :)
