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!

First Snow

Sugar coated leaves

Like frosted bracelet charms

Dance in stunned silence
