Haiku: Willful Alliteration

I was outside recently and an odd iridescence on the concrete of the patio caught my eye. Investigating it further, I discovered that it was a slug trail – something arguably quotidian, yet striking. Sadly, the photo doesn’t quite capture the trail’s true brilliance in the sunlight, but I saw it. And marveled.

Deep Freeze: It’s Single Digits Here

You know it’s cold when it’s 4 degrees out – and feels like 3. After a beautiful full moon (a Super Blood Wolf Moon) last night, we’re also being treated to a vibrant sunrise.

There’s an interesting formation of ice crystals on a window…see it from slightly different angles and phases of sunrise:

Cold, dark early sunrise
Just a few minutes later, lovely soft pastels and the promise of the sun

I just don’t tire of the beauty of ice crystals. It may be bitterly cold out, but Nature always has a show ready!
