If you’re under such unbearable pressure
that your cells explode,
sombre soul snow-shrapnel
hurled from toothsome tines,
do take the time
to look about you
as you arc through baby blue skies;
Sunlight, moisture, and the throb of a mighty engine -a recipe for gorgeous! My husband was busy with the snow-blower this week, and I was thrilled to see the arcing rainbows and glittering waves of colour darting about among those hapless snowflakes. What a vibrant lesson on finding beauty in even those difficult places in our lives!
“Tears are rainbows”–WOW, Wow, WOW
I got quite a few shots of this whole blowing snow thing – it went straight to my heart, somehow, those rainbows born out of cold and difficulty. Thank you, Caddo…
Thanks! And all that pink is ‘au naturel’, not edited at all. I love how the rainbow principle works with snow as well as rain – I have never, in all my years of prairie winters, seen that… (Well, except for ‘sun dogs’, which are tiny rainbows on each side of the sun when there are enough ice crystals in the air. This was different.) 🙂
Sun dogs! I would love to see those.
They are very pretty – and fairly rare, too, so extra special to catch!
And wonderful you for finding beauty from a snow blower. Man and machine creating luminosity.
🙂 Thanks! It was such a revelation – I’m so glad you can see the beauty of it, too!
“sombre soul snow-shrapnel”…nice!
your posts always bring a smile to my face and light up my day
Thanks Holly! 🙂 Good to see you out and about – very impressed with all you have been accomplishing in your writing…
Thanks Melody. Just heard from my agent today. Jumping into a major rewrite of novel #1. Say a little prayer for me. 🙂
Done! 🙂 All will be well…
You captured a winter rainbow! 🙂
And a wonderful surprise it was! I was like a kid in a candy store, I think!
I love this and how you keep finding God lessons all around you! Beautiful and so comforting too .. .God bless you!
