Maybe if I mess with the photo enough I can forget the fact that we are getting another half foot or more of this crap.
It’s going to be a good day for a snow shoe. Still rather monochromatic out there but even prettier than last night.
Here, have some snow. It’s a gift from me to you. We’ve got 3 new inches so far and several more to come before the day is over. This is just another typical winter day in New Hampshire.
Happy New Year from the frigid Northeast. Thanks again to those who follow and those who enjoy my pictures. I know there must be some overlap in there somewhere. ;) Thanks to people who have bought my photography—you have made me happy and given my confidence a hell of a boost. I always look forward to a new day and its possibilities. Today is no different. Here’s to our health and all the opportunities that await us in the new year.
In honor of National Poetry Month, a little poem from my back yard…
A Different Season
by The View Out Back (aka mcafowler)
Like a new lover you came to me
Shining and beautiful.
At first I was dazzled and awed
and there were days when I welcomed you,
the enforced quiet you brought.
Sadly, you didn’t know when to stop.
Your beauty became thin to my eyes
I ached from coldness, glimpsed dullness beneath your white armor.
It overwhelmed me and I wished you gone
before your frigid lies were the last words I knew.
Like an ex-lover you leave behind reminders—
reluctant piles of dirty snow in shade,
unwelcome gusts of biting wind across my skin,
a flurry or two in my hair
making you so difficult to forget.
But the sun is out today
longer than it was yesterday
melting what is left of your influence.
I stand tall,
A tingle along my limbs assuring me
Here’s Nemo at the start & at the end…which was about 2+ feet later. The first photo was taken at early morning on Friday, and the second late afternoon Saturday.
