Frost covers everything..
The sun sent red streaks across the sky..
Warning weather changes..
Now the bright, blinding ball is lighting the frost..
Giving delicate beauty to the grasses..
the cabin roof and the pond..
Thirteen days into this new year..
Below zero temperatures..
A January thaw that brought spring..
Tomorrow more snow..
Winter started in the fall..
Almost two feet of snow..
Fierce winds, ice and driving rain..
Melted layers of snow..
Watered the fields and creeks..
Changed the icy river..
To a muddy swirl lapping at the banks..
Tonight, snow will cover everything..
with a clean, new blanket..
