crunchy underfoot

Mrs. Winter threw a party last night.

Sprites of mist and cloud  mingled with soft rain as they danced a slow, graceful spiral over the  city with its shimmering river.

Trees coated in brown black silhouette reached out towards the fog-wrapped sky, shivering in anticipation, tendrils outstretched in welcome.

Wind whirled and swirled while glittering icy diamonds sparkled at its feet.

Gray light peeped through my  frozen window pane flashing an invitation in hushed tones.

Dawn came late and we  almost missed the evening’s last dance.

Clad in goose feather once-wings with sunshine gold newtons wrapped around  my feet, I slipped, slid, sloshed through sleek ice and powdery snow, crunching out a swift and light tempo underfoot.

Mrs. Winter, drunk from the night’s revelry and release,  left her furry white coat on the once green tufted grass. Mr. Sun found it a few hours later.

Like all great parties, this one too, lasted ’til morning…

    The photos are splendid. I particularly like the perspective of the second photo and the whimsy of the last one…Travels can be tiring at times, but how else does one get to attend winter parties like this? 🙂

    Oh I’ve always, always loved europe in the winter time… way better than i did disneyland in the summer when i was really just 5 years old. Now, of course, I still think I’m 5 inside my head sometimes.
