Hoar Frost

In nature's beauty, peace is found…

A star filled night upon the plain
   invites small jewels to form again….

These delicate and frozen gems
align in perfect symmetry—
they cling to even smallest stem
in ways that man could not create.
I truly am in awe of such
   for this is no designer’s touch…
their form defies imagination.

The daylight breaks, and with the dawn
we find we cannot hold nor halt
the melting of these tiny shards…
and so we capture, we encrypt
their image to our memory’s vault.

Then, left inspired by what we’ve seen
in moment of tranquility
we've ascertained ability
to face our day with newfound calm.

    nature is such an artist...i love the things that frost can do...
