Winter Stitches {Poetry Friday}

                                                                       

Winter Stitches

winter is a thrifty seamstress
randomly stitching
clear
crystal threads
adding shimmer and shine

winter creates open spaces 
thread like paths
sparkling
connecting moments
of nature, naturally

Last weekend there was a warning for large amounts of snow and we ended up with rain.  This photo was what I woke up to while staying in a lovely local Bed and Breakfast with friends.  I love finding moments to stop and notice surprises in nature.  Also, it was so helpful to have my mentor and friend Mary Lee Hahn conferring with me as a writer - win win weekend.


Thank you Tara at Going to Walden for hosting Poetry Friday this week.

  1. How fabulous to have a winter weekend at a B & B and Mary Lee as your mentor, Mandy. The image is remarkable and your poem's opening is a great first liner. Would you be interested in sending me this poem/photo combination for my winter gallery (invitation is at http://beyondliteracylink.blogspot.com/2019/01/invitation-to-create-winter-digitals.html? I just noticed the title of your blog (embrace is my one word this year and happens to be the title of my winter Gallery - Winter's Embrace).
