Generous Winter

Spring chooses apple
quince, cherry, plum trees for blooms
but Winter’s crystals,
indiscriminate, flower
any plant whose arms are raised.

**********
Last weekend we had a few days of gorgeous hoarfrost. This is not usual here so I was thrilled to have my camera along on Sunday when we walked the path at Derby’s Reach and the whole place was like a giant orchard in bloom. Our rains are back now and the frost is long gone… but not before I got a few photos and a poem.
