Tanka: Hoarfrost

macro shot of brown leaves covered in melting hoarfrost
macro shot of a curled brown autumn leaf covered in ice crystals

brown leaves
sparkling with frost
a robin calls
his song becomes the star
my compass for the day

    1. Thank you dear Janet and lovely to see you! Apart from night frost the weather is still fairly mild and I was lucky to capture the ice crystals before they melted. Hope all is well with you too! πŸ€—πŸ’– xxx

      1. Ice crystals are so delicate, aren’t they? I take photos of them as soon as possible, as once the sun hits them, they often disappear.

        I’m doing well, just busy getting ready for a move next year to Arizona. Winter will be quite different there. πŸ™‚
