    Alyssa looks beneath the snowflakes....
    Don't miss this beauty.

    Alyssa
    When I woke up this morning it was a mere 1° F (-17.222 C)... but the sun is shining & the temperature is bit higher at a whopping 9° so far.

    I'm grateful for the mild Winter season.  We've seen alot worse, but that's Ohio.

    I've always thought the tables would turn and we would start getting that warm weather like in Florida and that part of the world would have our cold snaps.

    Who knows...maybe it will happen.

    Snowglobes...I love to collect them.  It's like trapping time in a bottle.

    Your poem for Snowflakes shows us a deeper meaning.

    One should look past the surface to touch reality.

    So often we only see what's right in front of our eyes, but if we look closely enough...we'll see the hard cold truth.

    Great writing as usual.

    I love the way your mind works.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article.

    "softness and beauty

    come at a price"

    It's such a seemingly simple phrase, but it only happens in the mind of a talented writer. I don't know how many poems I read each week, but it is very rare to read a phrase like that, one which required thought and vision and awareness. Outstanding!

    Thanks Brenda for sharing Alyssa's snowflake-inspired poem with us.  I agree with Bill that those two lines are brilliant.

    The snow can be so lovely, but people living in it do have to be cautious.
