Sugar and Spice and All Things Iced: a photo collage
We've had our share of dramatic winter weather in 2011, all within the mighty month of February; and not only here in Michigan where I live, but in many parts of the USA and Canada. During the Valentine month, we experienced the following weather conditions; a record blizzard which buried some regions with 20 inches of snow, a 50 degree melt down, which transformed the landscape in almost a single day and then a few days later, an unusual ice storm impacted us yet again . . . phew!
All photos were taken in my yard or down my dead end street
The freeze has been especially inspiring, providing many photo opts which I gladly have taken advantage of! With that said, I hope you enjoy the scenery, the ice really is a thing of beauty. There are few words in between, the pictures tell the story! P.S. But, of course I had to include a poem!
Trapped in ice
I yearn to be free
from its squeeze
The sun returns
as I watch freeze burn
off my branches
inches by inches
dripping and dripping
Limbs no longer tipping
from the hefty mass
and concrete grasp
letting me breathe
breathe in deep
uplifting my figure
recapturing my rapture
Feeling the release
feeling the ease
I just want to breathe

Nature poetry that asks; would we know love without fear, hot without cold, winter without summer? We live in a world of relativity so that God can know himself in his experience through us.
