Snowflakes

Snowflakes


.
.
.
.
Glistening gifts

Of ice and cold,
.
.
.

.
.
.
Whether in silence or storm,

Whether seen or scorned,

They descend, are given
.
.
.

.
.
.
As we bundle up

And hide ourselves

From their penetration.
.
.
.

.
.
.
Freeze time,

For just

A moment.
.
.
.


.
.
.
Give a glance ~

It's all the time

They have to give ~
.
.
.

.
.
.
And see the chiseled wonder

Of a single glint

In their Creator's sparkling eye
.
.
.

.
.
.
As He looks upon us

With showers of grace,
.
.
.

.
.
.
Of mercy's lace.
.
.
.

.
.
.
As time stills

I see the whisper

Of another Place.

Came over from Ann's.

Have you seen that book Snowflakes? Really marvelous, amazing... and, yes, whispers of another place.

I don't think I've seen the book "Snowflakes." I have read "Snowflake Bentley" by Jacquwline Briggs Martin, a delightful book written for children (that I really enjoyed as well) about Wilson Bentley who may have been the first (or one of the first) photographers of snowflakes. You can also see many of his original photos on the web (just Google it) and they are royalty free to use. They were in black and white, of course.

Thanks so much for stopping by! :)

Hello. I've just come by from Ann's blog. beautiful words you've written here.

causing me to stop... to think, "when was the last time I really looked closely at one of these beauties from the Lord"

I love this...

"As time stills

I see the whisper

Of another Place."

Next time it snows... I will stop... and see.

thank you.

Thank you for visiting and sharing. I find myself having to remind myself often to stop... and see, as you've written. Let us continue to encourage one another along the journey...

To Him be all the glory,
