Picture of the Day
February 4, 2019

color came creeping back into the landscape, rapid thaw of
sun and rain, greens and browns emerge from the grey.

even in a new place, do you find yourself
returning time & again to a single spot?

for me here it is the swamp.

though wet & slushy
on top, the ice
is still thick,
except for
this brown
guess is there's
a spring below it
bubbling up, melting
the ice from underneath,
fractures like tree branches,
palimpsest of bubbles, cracks,

                              and reflections.

49F three days after it was -19, the day was
soft and wet. tomorrow it's expected to freeze.
