Made of snow

January 2013 007a

I used to have fiery intensity,
and a flowing sweetness.

The waters were illusion.
The flames, made of snow.

Was I dreaming then?
Am I awake now?

Saturday's view of the pond

Saturday’s view of the pond

The snow and ice are melting here in the Bogs.  Everything is becoming mushy and slushy as winter thaws and liquifies.

But even in the mud and slush, there is beauty to be found.

I’ll have to keep this short as it’s a busy, busy day.  Thank you so much for stopping by on this slushy January day.  Please join me tomorrow when I’ll be doing a book review and giveaway for TLC Book Tours.

Izzy wanted to drop in and say hello.

Be good, be kind, be loving, just Be.  🙂

    So beautiful!

  3. Your “tagline/header” lake shot does look sharply cold.
    (as contrasted to warm Izzy! Beautiful colored creature!)
    Really like the pix just above and below Izzy.
    Nice once again.

    I’m sure there will be a lot more snow before winter is over. We’ve just begun. Beautiful pictures.

    But there is beauty in the bogs all year round Robin! It’s lovely to see Izzy today, isn’t it usually Bella who likes to say hello? They are both so beautiful. 🙂

      True, Joanne. 🙂 And yes, it usually is Bella who poses for the camera. Izzy is shy so I don’t often get a good photo of her. Bella, on the other hand, is always ready for her close-up. lol!

  7. Carla says:

    Yay, Izzy! Looks like she’s smiling!

  8. I love the 5th image and definately the 6th image!!

  9. That’s an absolutely gorgeous view of your pond, Robin.
    I don’t remember if you ever mentioned this before, but does it ever freeze enough to ice-skate on your pond?

  10. ” . . . as winter thaws and liquifies.” What a great line, Robin. Lovely post.
