Winter Leaves



Thorns and Spheres

I know I said a couple weeks ago that the Midwest is completely dead during the winter season. Well. Nature proved me wrong, as it so often does.

Clouded Rays

Volcanic Islands

Fire meets water
In a spectacular way
Adding to an isle
Most every day
Hot red and cool blue
Collide in a burst of steam
Creating a vicious landscape
Often only seen in dreams
An island appearing dull
Cloaked in garb gray
Until it begins glistening
Drowning in salty spray
Giving the concrete lava
A particular type of gleam
Heightened in the peak
Of the sun’s beating beams

* Author’s Note: This Poetry Thursday was inspired by none other than the nature documentaries on Netflix from the BBC. If I don’t have music on in the background while I’m writing, I’m watching (and re-watching) documentaries. Even as a child, I was fascinated by documentaries. A dream of mine is to travel the world, photographing plants, animals, weather, and everything in between. I’ve always loved nature, and I have a feeling I always will.

Ice Lichen

Today’s Photography Tuesday brings us ice crystals off my Wrangler from a blistering cold of a morning. The way they formed reminded me of lichen, and lichen is one of my favorite things to photograph.

Freebie Friday is a photograph from a local park after the first snow of our state’s winter season.
