Winter is . . .

a snowy blanket,
billowing loaves,
failed divinity the texture of silly putty,
and icicles at sunset.

Winter, I will look for your beauty.

Your divinity made me laugh!
Only because I've made a batch or two just like it.

Love your winter photos!
I need to have that same attitude.
I WILL FIND THE BEAUTY!
