Glass Houses

He lives in a glass house

but is unafraid to cast the first stone;

the ripple effect drives shards

straight through his

sternum.

    Now there’s a well put statement (I was going for a specific word, but I can’t reach it without dragging the step stool over)–Mel, is there a small typo in the first line? Great job–one of those, “wish I’d written it”…

    Beautiful Mel, and the pic is just spot on!

  3. Such a beautiful and very rare image!

      We usually have this at least once during our spring run-off, when the water level drops overnight as temps cool, leaving the previous layer of ice high and dry. It IS rather lovely, a sharp image and lesson for us all.

    stunning… both words and pictures 🙂 Thanks for sharing your talent with us!

    That’s an interesting formation (or deformation) of ice melting.
