Happy Friday... It's almost Valentine's Day, so I'm sharing this warm heart with you and yours.
We happen to be in the portion of NJ that has been endowed with 29" of snow in the past two weeks or so. And it sounds like more to come. I'm a winter person and I mostly enjoy the startling change in the landscape, the beauty, the crisp air. So... I took this photo one day before the sun melted the snow off, and I've been trying to write about it. So far I've fiddled with an etheree. Let me know what you think...
In the Arms of the Maple
out to gather
the cold confetti
(a handout that dazzles
and drapes for stylish soirees)
then north wind blasts some cool music
and ev-ry limb shimmers and shakes 'til
glitter bomb!!! Looks like winter threw a fete!
