Photography and Haiku: Remembering Winter

On this last day of astronomical winter, I offer a few more photos of what the hard season looked like and use haiku to describe the images.


 

Hard water, cold light

Mississippi River ice

Lobes in blue and white

Rain freezes on snow

Cold sun and sparkling blanket

Ice chunks floating south

Water is transformed

Icicles yield to spikes

Crack, thunk, moving up
