In the Snow In the snow They go These blue-grey ghostly, Shadowy footprints in the white Maybe even dead of night To and fro They never seem to Slow Even up the steps They go Do you possibly suppose Unbeknown they May leave behind, Expose. A small piece of each Imprint-owner’s Soul??
Cars are Creeping Cars are creeping & no one is leaping On those icy streets Parking lots are dotted As with deicing salt they are besotted & stores are hoping their customers to keep In my part of the world Unused we are to this much ice So even as much as they try Still we must moan & cry We need more Salt! So every thing comes to a halt As we slip & slide Inexperienced with this much Snow & Ice Wave as we go coasting thru (my car with a mind of its own Is now imbued) Unable to halt at all At each or any little red stop sign!
Where I live we are not used to ice and snow hardly at all so almost everything comes to a halt with only a small amount of snow. This time, however, we got a large amount of ice (just glad the electrics did not go out). Hope everyone is having a good day and Praise God for His love, mercy & joy!
Graceful Ladies (a slight whimsy) Graceful ladies All in a row Is it just for glee You choose to show Your whitest underbellies Shedding dark bark You simper & glow From top to toe As you continue to Strut in your underclothes! My Mama would be shocked Papa enraged If I dared to engage In such behavior I cannot do the same As you Nor dare I choose Such brave frivolity!
The large old sycamore trees along our river greenway are even more lovely in winter when, without leaves, you can see their white bark even better. Have a blessed day & Praise God!

Water Crystals Crystals of light flung everywhere by a force of nature not quiet so rare yet still not within my feeble grasp Dancing merrily before my face Oh, to have such purely joyful grace to be able to fly with such abandonment I laugh as I watch your joy-filled dance And as I turn to leave unable to avoid a second glance you fall to return to the liquid foam where you now may rest within your watery home
I could not resist taking the videos of an early morning bike ride on our greenway which goes right by a river. It was cold, but the sun was out, and it was so nice how the bright sun reflected off the river. I enjoy listening to the sound of the rushing water. Have a blessed day!

These snow covered trees reminded me of dancers. Have a good day!
Distorted Dancers Distorted dancers In the air Seeming not to know Or care How you fling your Limbs out everywhere Upward into the greyest Of Airs Or down to earth where I stand & stare I admire your courage But I do not think Without at least one blink I could such graceful dexterity Show I would have to surely stop & groan As I attempted about to Throw My limbs as you do So I will just stand And admire As your limbs reach upward As lofty spires Toward Heaven’s most exalted spaces And our mutual Father’s Loving graces.
As I was walking the greenway this morning, it was cold and snowing, but I caught some mallard ducks enjoying the icy water. I love the sound of the water falling over the rocks so I just thought I would try my hand at a short video. Please excuse the slight hand wobbles. Have a great day!
I got to ride my bike again today on a longer ride, almost ten miles. It’s my new hobby, and I love it! I am a 2X cancer survivor, and I’m grateful God lets me enjoy the bike riding. Each day feels like a gift to still be able to enjoy life with my family & friends. May God bless your day. Praise Him for his grace and mercy!!
Also I could not resist this photo of some beautiful, massive old sycamore trees at the water’s edge. In winter without the leaves, you can see their white bark even better. Have a good day!
