No Snow, No Ice



::

no snow
no ice

no sparkles of light
bouncing off
snowy landscapes
or 
hanging 
icicles
glistening
in sunlight

just
brown
loitering
around
til 
green
decides
to wake
its
lazy ass
up

yet
if one looks
hard enough
and long enough
 even here in the south
winter can offer a bit of beauty
(with the slightest of kicks from photoshop)

  7. Lots of brown loitering here too, but these sure are pretty, Jill.
    So many things are just as beautiful past their prime as they are when they are in bloom,
    and what a wonderful example of that, this is.

  9. You're poem is cute, especially when talking about the lazy green. Winter offers some unique photography opportunities which you displayed so wonderfully here. There's beauty in every season. Hope the green wakes its butt up soon for you! :)
