Drifting in First Light...










A new fallen snow
masks once grand dames of technicolor,
visions of sugar plums
dancing their ruse
in my garden of
missed cultivation.
Oh well,
there is always the next season...right.
It's like that you know...
I'll tend to you faithfully...next year...
well, I'll try,
you see there are many schemes
at hand here,
wiling away the hours
drifted in and pondering,
new productions to my country fair are at play...
the garden of misfits,
the garden of jewels,
my cache of prairie gems
in unruly, yet planned, sculpted effects...
you know where the scheme lies,
why do I try...
your plan secreted away
under the the drifts of schedules
you look toward each year.
You are the playwright
and I, your fan,
cheer you to the heights
of fame... excel lance...
who am I to criticize,
when all I want is to revel
and roll in your seasoned perfume...
the essence of a nature
unfurled by the drifts
of time...
a season,
a new year
for all,
once again.

Ohhh...something been visiting Mulder!

You have a tad more snow than we do...
we are, however, blanketed in the stuff!

More snow expected thru Christmas!

*hunkers down by fire*

We had snow and ice yesterday, but it was to depressing to take a picture of. But I always enjoy looking at your snow pictures.

I adore this bit.

We didn't get the snow predicted. Maybe I speak too soon?

Stay warm and write some more of these beauties.

Oh, that first picture is a masterpiece. I spot your alien peeping out. I love these. Thanks for showing them. I love snow but don't get to see much of it.

I haven't seen little green Mulder in a long time. Glad to see the snow isn't bothering him. (He will be a foot under the snow this time tomorrow;)
