Dust of Snow


The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree
Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.

I love it when the trees are covered with snow. Love the poetry too.

It is cold, there should be snow. Here in Oklahoma, it can get a little cold (not like in MN, but still a little cold) but there is very rarely any snow. Snow makes coldness a little more bearable.

What a beautiful poem to match the gorgeous pictures.

I wish you lived closer so we could take a photography class together.

There is nothing prettier in mother nature than a bright blue sunny morning with the sun shining down on rime covered trees, power lines, bushes, etc.

The only problem lies in the fact that the roads are also generally ice-covered and very, very slick.

Thanks for the pics and poetry.

Love, Dad-Mom
