A quiet hike in the snowy woods on New Year’s Day, before the snow fell heavily. And haiku inspired by the photos.
edging the tree trunks
fungi catch the weightless flakes
perches for snowfall
frozen apples hang
high in the snowy forest
thin layer of ice
beneath reflection and snow
looks like the night sky

Lovely. Especially the third one. Is that Bee Balm? Happy 2014!
Hi! Thank you! I think it is bee balm, but I am not an expert. I was intrigued by the honeycomb-look of it. Happy New Year!
Gorgeous photos and evocative words. So beautiful! Hope you’re wrapping up warm 🙂
