Posts Tagged ‘morning in the park’

A few weeks ago, I went for my usual walk in the park at dawn. Something easier to do now than it is during the summer. The temperature had dipped down below the freezing point, so before the sun hit the frosted plants, these were the views I found.  It was stunning to look out to see a prairie covered with frost.  These were taken on the same day as the on in my Six Word Saturday post on diamonds and feathers.

I love finding the small beauties in the world and then photographing them. It’s too easy to see the big picture yet miss the individual pieces that make up that picture.  The park is full of these gems, in this case, gems made of ice.  However, I, unlike Stevie, don’t keep my visions to myself.  I share them with you!

Now here I go again, I see the crystal visions

I am grateful for the silence of winter mornings, for the beauty and wonder of the glint of sunlight in frost melting to dew, for the early-riser’s peaceful solitude that sets a mood of thankfulness, hope, and calm for the dawning day.

There aren’t just flowers in the park, there are also the natives.  On the morning of all the flowers, there was a plethora of rabbits as well.  This one was eating, but you can bet his/her little eye is well-fixed on me.  🙂
