fairy-froth in icy court,
fabricated of earth’s tears
and Arctic breath,
to fly fears
to God’s throne.
I’ve never seen frost like this. My husband pushed some snow to break a walking trail, and within hours, the ground was covered with fairy-dust feathers of frost. The atmospheric conditions must be just right to produce such a phenomenon – why did it grow? Why take this feathery form? The mystery and magic have me enthralled…
Living with the mystery….like the manna of your other poem. We can ask “what is it?” Or receive the mysterious offering as a gift. I vote gift. 🙂
Beautiful thought, Tina. I vote gift, too! 🙂
They are magical.
Absolutely amazing – I’ll have to check this morning to see if they are still there – or did they come just for one day?
gift!!! definitely!!! 🙂
Oh, I’m so lovin’ this! Especially “feathers to fly fears in whispers to God’s throne”–amazing, vivid imagery, and so comforting and assuring.
That frost was inspirational, I tell ya!
Melody, these are “magical feathers” indeed! Perfect poem too!
Blessings ~ Wendy
Thanks Wendy. Have you ever seen frost like this? I sure haven’t…
No I have not seen frost feathers before. These are awesome…perhaps fallen from a goose that lays golden eggs? Share? 😉 Seriously though – very beautiful!
Perhaps the golden goose at the end of the proverbial rainbow?? 🙂 It’s all covered up with snow, today – I wonder if I will ever see anything like that again??
Beautiful! I’ve never seen anything like that before. They look like leaves.
I can’t explain to you how absolutely stunning it was. I was so excited to see what they looked like this morning – and we got snowed in, at least 6 cm, blowing in every direction. I may never see this phenomenon again in my lifetime… ??
so detailed and delicate ~lacy!
Isn’t it beautiful? 🙂
What a discovery for you .. and the poem was exquisite to match the photo! Thank you for blessing us!
Thank you Debbie – I couldn’t help but pass this one on – what an interesting experience!
