First Snow

Hello friends,

I'm out of town this weekend, but wanted to share a haiku I wrote this week after we had our first snowfall. We got about an inch up on our hill. Boy, were those trees and leaves surprised! These photos are from the first heavy frost we had. I couldn't catch the snow on the leaves because it is pitch black out now when I drive to work!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend. And if you are inspired to write a bit about your own environment, or perhaps these photos spark an idea, post it in the comments and I'll add it to the piece on Monday.

Remember to take pleasure in the little things, and if you love to write, write like the wind!
- Aaron

Sugar coated leaves

Like frosted bracelet charms

Dance in stunned silence

What a lovely poem from such an eloquent writer. Who was it said that they would leave it to the poets to describe what takes place because only such eloquence needs to be remembered.

You have a wonderful gift, Aaron.

I'm repeating myself, I know, but you have such an amazing eye and an equally wonderful talent to paint it with words.

Marta - thank you so much!

Okay, I just spit coffee all over the place laughing at this! :-) You have such a vivid way with words, Aaron...

And pictures, too. These are amazing!

Oh, Kim. You are so sweet. You always make me feel so good about my writing.

SW - I knew you'd get a kick out of this. I know how much you LOVE snow!!! LOL.
