WINTER FROST, poem for July from New Zealand

Very heavy frost this July morning.
The stretch of mown lawn was white, crispy white.

Now it is the noontide hour;
the blades of grass are glittering like a sea of diamonds
in the bright sunlight.

I pause and take time to rejoyce
in the beauty of the earth and
the gifts of the Creator.

Heather Kelly, Invercargill, New Zealand, July 2017. I (Maren) admit I went hunting for a photograph of winter, Aotearoa and public domain! This is not perfectly the scene that Heather offers us, but it is another beauty. Look out, wherever you are, however and whatever season is unrolling for you and celebrate the beauty that is there. It will lead you to the word she creates — rejoyce!
